My spouse is a gigantic baseball fan. He will pay the $14.99 for the HD version of the pay per view games whenever they are on. I get a little angry since I think the money is a bit outrageous for a show that only last two hours.
Nonetheless, I love my spouse and if he wants HD for his TV viewing.fine. I once asked him why he didn't want to save $10 and get the standard picture one. He educated me that the image was so much more colorful and real looking when he watched it on HD.
I decided to examine this for myself since I am an avid watcher of our HDTV.
I browsed some of the HD channels and found out that we had HGTV and HD History. I started watching my programs like "House Hunters" and "Blow it up" on those channels instead of the regular ones. I must admit the HD channels were much more pleasing to the eye on my HDTV than the others were. Everything was so much brighter and the color was so much truer than with the other channels. .
I tried to go back to the other channels once and I just couldn't do it. I wanted the better ones! One day my spouse came into the room and without even asking he said, "I see you have finally backed down and you're watching the better picture quality." I didn't reply because I knew he was right and I should have let myself see what he meant when he just had to have the fight for $40. Sometimes you have to listen to your hubby because he truly does know what he is talking about with technology.
I am so pleased that I backed down, I guess it was time.
So now that I am all excited about this new tv watching experience, my spouse told me something else that excited me. On Feb 17, 2009, all stations will be transmitting high quality signals, which mean ALL of my shows will look as great as these do. I can view "Nip/Tuck" and "Deal or No Deal" in a completely new way. Anyway, the reason I am writing this is for all of you girls or guys who haven't gave these channels a chance. I thought there was no difference at first too but now I am hooked.
It's amazing what technology has done with televisions and I am excited to see what the future has in store.
