How Did I Go Without HDTV!

By: Jim Williams

Unbeleivable, my parents finally bought an HDTV. All my friends have high definition television except for me until now. I would always go to my next door neighbor's house to watch my favorite shows or watch the game.

High definition is just so much better than regular television. Now I can sit in the comfort of my home and watch what I want, when I want. My parents have been watching the same TV for the past 7 years.

I was just about finished with the regular old pictures we had on it. I wanted the vivid, clear pictures on my friend's HDTV. I must admit I was jealous of the TV. There is nothing like watching that type of image on a TV and then coming home to a boring, dull, and boring one.

One day my parents told me at breakfast they finally decided to enter the 21st century and buy an HDTV. I was so relieved. We all went to the electronics store to look around. When my parents saw the prices of them, they were surprised.

Apparently, they never priced them before and always thought it would cost a ton of money. They even said they would have probably purchased one sooner if they knew they weren't so much money. Why didn't I ever do the research for them? Oh well, the point is that they finally decided to buy one.

I was ready to sit down and enjoy our new HDTV when it was delivered. I had my popcorn and Pepsi in a tall glass. I sat down and my parents sat close to me. I guess I won't be able to watch exactly what I want, when I want after all.

In any case, we threw in American Gangster. The picture was awesome. It was so much better than going to the movie house in our little town in New Mexico. We didn't have to worry about tickets or being bothered by the people who commented through the entire film.

I could now watch a great movie with a great image all because of our HDTV. It didn't stop there, since we have the high definition service from our satellite provider we are able to watch the high definition channels. We watch FOX, NBC, and CBS shows with this high quality picture.

Shortly we will have so many other channels, which will have the same awesome picture. Next year all stations will have to send high definition signals only. Bring on the High definition...we are ready!
