I am working in my bedroom, where i do not have HD service.. I have SD+ a 10 year old Sony CRT non HD TV... Even watching CNN, all that i can think is "WoW, this picture quality REALLY sucks..."


I think that when i buy a house i will ONLY have HD Tv's/HD content......


is anyone else in a similar situation as myself?

Sort of similar.

Changed internet providers to the local cable company after the last round of BOHICA (Bend Over - Here It Comes Again) from the phone company. Got 6 free months of digital SD TV along with it.

In the last 3 years, I've had TV for the 6 months around World and Euro Cup... I just don't watch the tube.

As a couple, we're up to watching a grandiose 1 hour of TV a week - she's been watching Survivor. No tube TVs in the house, but the picture quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Plus, the installation monkey went around my grounding, so there's a slow crawl.

No biggie... I keep the box for 6 months, return it before it goes up to $75 a month and all is well.

I'm onboard that.
We're with bell expressvu but for how long, i don't know since they keep increasing the monthly charge by $3 every year and claim massive profits in the markets.
It is the most costly monthly household bill we have.

Is it the lower 48 only? I though their coverage area was North America, including Canada.... No?

The last I have heard, it is illegal in Canada to get US satellite service. If a person chooses this option, you would need a US address to get service. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
