I saw high definition television last weekend. We were visiting some family and they have a very nice HD tv and subscribe to the HD service from Comcast. You know something? It was beautiful. We watched a little bit of football and I was sincerely blown away by the quality. Some day I’ll be able to watch tv like that.
Why not today? Well, because I’m a cheapskate. To buy a comparable television would cost me somewhere around $1500 to $2000. Then, on top of that, I’d have to get digital cable and also add on the HD signal. All told, it would set me back nearly $90 per month. While I really like the picture, I also like the picture in my head of my wallet stuffed with money. I’m going to pass for now.
Needless to say, I think I’ll be stopping by my sisters house more often to watch some tv.
