    Over-The-Air HDTV Makes Xbox One A Near-Perfect Cord-Cutting Console

    Microsoft announced support for over-the-air TV broadcasts, including HD content, early in April.

The end result is that, for me at least, Xbox One is closer than ever to achieving its vision of being… Read More

  • HDTVs Are Popular, But HD Programming Is Not

    You can’t buy an SD TV anymore. Well, not a traditional 4:3 SD TV at least. Nope, if you want a TV, high-def is your only choice. But you do have a choice whether to subscribe to the HD service from your TV provider. Apparently more people are sticking with their SD cable TV instead of paying extra for the higher resolution. Nielsen reports that 80% of the programming on… Read More

  • Review: Hitachi 42-inch Ultravision HDTV – LE42S704

    Once upon a time HDTVs fascinated me. I loved the depth of the colors and amazing detail they produced. But that was 7 years ago when they were new and exciting. Now I walk into Best Buy and my eyes glaze over when staring at their wall o’ HDTVs. I just don’t care anymore. They all look the same. That is until the Hitachi LE42S704 came into my life.

  • TV viewers now refusing to watch SD content?

    There’s a handy option in the DirecTV menu guide for “HDTV Channels.” On the rare occasion when I’m actually sitting in front of the TV looking to “channel surf” (more like “menu surf” nowadays), it’s only “HDTV channels” I’m concerned with. Nearly halfway through 2010, it has come to the point where, unless I absolutely… Read More
