.This year for Xmas, the big gift was Wii. My children craved it and the entire tribe ended up loving it. We spent the complete day in front of the tv performing the different games the man in the red suit brought for the Wii.
. A couple months after the Holidays, my little ones are asking for a bigger and better television to go along with their game playing experience. I understand that all of their friends have one of those new HDTVs but we never saw the justification for it. Our tv works perfectly alright and we don't really have the money to sink into a new HDTV.
. I also heard that you have to pay extra to the cable co. for HDTV service. I am not interested in paying more money than I truly need to. We already pay so much for the show channels we subscribe to and I am not willing to cancel those since we all love to watch worthy movies at home. .
Nonetheless, I did feel that maybe it was time for an upgrade. We could also take the television currently in the family area and put it in the downstairs extra room so our guests can have some private television watching. . So one weekend, my hubby and I went out to the store to see what we could afford.
The salesman showed us one of the lower expensive HDTVs available and let us know that it was just as good as the large names. We considered it and then decided that since we always buy Pioneer, we would kinda stick with a name we know. . .We ended up buying a newSony HDTV for only a little more than the less expensive one.
The sales associate did let us know about something that made paying a bit more for the television worth it. He said there are antennas available that give you the same signals as the satellite provider does. .
.You buy it and place it either indoors or outdoors and then you can have all the channels you would receive through the cable company without paying for it every month. . We looked into it and bought one of the antennas for outdoors. We now have it all set up and we couldn't be happier.
The kids love to play their games on the big HDTV and my husband and I love watching movies or tv on it. I must admit I should have invested in this a while ago. I am stunned with the service we undergo from the antenna and the amazing picture we now receive on our tv.
