    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 America's HDTVs is… Read More

  • Review: Hitachi 42-inch Ultravision HDTV – LE42S704

    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.

Gary over at HD Guru just posted a fantastic article where he goes into the different schemes used by cable manufacturers to trick consumers into believing they need a… Read More

  • TV viewers now refusing to watch SD content?

    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 have no other choice, I simply won't watch a network unless the program is in… Read More

    South Korea first to terrestrially broadcast HD 3DTV

    Conclusive evidence that South Korea is the greatest country on Earth: it will begin terrestrial (that's over-the-air) 3D TV broadcasts in a few weeks. Better still, it'll be in full high-definition. How long do you think it's going to be before "Dancing With The Stars" is shown in 3D here? Probably like 200 years, yes. Read More
