. .I have been trying to convince my mother for years to give up the antenna on her house and switch over to satellite. She is not hurting for money and cable TV would truly help her fill up her day while she is at home taking care of her mother. She does watch TV but she watches the same station all day long.
I keep telling her of all the benefits about HDTVs and how she could easily switch out her old antenna and change it with a newer antenna, which would give her higher quality pictures, but she won't make the switch. . .I guess people just don't like change. I know it is not a money issue because she has a lot of it and I even offered to get her one.
Her response was, "I don't need one of those fancy looking tv's". I guess my big push for an HDTV comes from my own experience with them. We reside in a very small municipality in Washington.
We don't have much in the form of amusement so we depend on our television for our nightly entertainment and parties. . .When I saw the clear pictures at our local store, I was astonished and instantly hooked.
Then I heard about the antenna you can buy either for the outdoors or indoors. I thought this was great because our cable company charges an arm and a leg for the new channels. All we needed to do was pay for the antenna one time. We installed the inside one in a matter of minutes. As soon as we turned our HDTV on, it scans the channels and picked them all up, I was so excited.
. .Now, I watch all the great high quality picture shows on channels like A&E and the most popular ones like CBS and NBC. Watching television was never as enjoyable as it is now. It's like the actors are sitting in your living room with you or you are with them in whatever place they are.
The Discovery Channel makes you feel like you have transported yourself from the little town you live in to just anywhere in the world. . .
I love this television and I just wish my loved ones would see. I don't know, I guess one of these days someone in the family will get in touch with the present and buy themselves a nice HDTV. Until then they will just continue to watch their little 21" out of date junkie Televisions .
