Our Best Christmas Present Our Family Ever Received!

By: Jim Williams

This year for Yuletide, the big present was Wii. My boys loved it and the whole family ended up loving it. We spent the entire day in front of the television performing the different games Santa brought for the Wii.

A couple days after the Holidays, my little ones are asking for a bigger and better tv to go along with their game playing experience. I believe that all of their friends have one of those new HDTVs but we never saw the justification for it.

Our tv works perfectly alright and we don't really have the money to sink into a new HDTV. I also heard that you have to fork out extra to the cable co. for HDTV service. I am not interested in paying more money than I truly need to.

We already pay so much for the show channels we subscribe to and I am not willing to cancel those since we all love to see good movies at home. Nevertheless, I did feel that maybe it was time for an advance.

We could also take the television currently in the family area and put it in the upstairs spare room so our guests can have some private tv watching. So one weekend, my husband and I went out to Circuit City to see what we could afford.

The sales associate showed us one of the less expensive HDTVs accessible and let us know that it was just as good as the bigger names. We considered it and then decided that since we always buy Pioneer, we would kinda stick with a name we know.

We ended up purchasing a new Sony HDTV for only a little more than the less expensive one. The sales associate did let us know about something that made paying a bit more for the television worth it. He said there are antennas purchasable that yield you the same signals as the cable provider does.

You buy it and place it either indoors or outside and then you can have all the channels you would receive through the cable company without paying for it every month. We looked into it and bought one of the antennas for indoors.

We now have it all set up and we couldn't be happier. The kids love to play their games on the big HDTV and my hubby and I love watching movies or tv on it. I must say I should have invested in this a while ago. I am astonished with the service we undergo from the antenna and the picture quality.
