We’re on the brink of analogue OTA finally getting flipped to digital, and hopefully we’ll finally see HD penetration where it should be, yet HDTV still seems to lack critical appeal.
A relative of mine got all setup last Christmas with a nice new LCD HDTV and HD Cable service in their cosy upstairs living area. I helped him set it up and it looks great.
While I was visiting him on the weekend he fired up the baseball game … on his 15 year old 20” tube TV in the downstairs living room. “Is this game not on in HD upstairs?” I asked. “Yea…but to tell you the truth, I still watch a lot of TV down here…” he answered.
That says alot about the state of HDTV.
