I know the world is going to high definition TVs. I know it! But I’ve been refusing to capitulate to the capitalistic calls – so far. But my strength is waning …
My issue is that buying a HD TV means I then have to get some HD content. That means a new digital box from my cable company, or hacking some antenna together to try to capture some of the HD channels floating over the air. I’d also want to get a HD disc player, which means Blu-Ray. And then there’s the expensive cables, etc. All in all, moving to HD means a completely new television ecosystem within the house – not a cheap proposition.
But then there are soothing, affirming articles such as this one at PC World, that claims that 1 in 5 of those HD television watchers can’t actually tell the difference betwen high def and standard def. Now that just warms my cockles.
Take that Capitalism!
