Default Re: Hi-def TV

Hmmm, are you sure you are not getting confused with digital tv?? I know they are ceasing the transmission of analogue tv signals in the next few years, but I've heard nothing about it going HiDef only. Plus couldn't you just receive HiDef signals on a normal tv but just not get the extra definition??

If you are talking about digital tv then it's just a matter of getting a freeview box.

It was in the papers & TV, all my friends are up in arms about it, especially one who can just about afford the licence, let alone buy a new TV.

That sucks, I don't understand how they can do that though. I feel bad for you now Brookfield.

PS; Did you know that our prime ministers, retire on full salary, for life?
dont forget using the queen's private jet for family holidays... half a million of taxpayers money spent on getting blair on his jollies...

i will not get a HDTV for at least 4 years, they are far too expensive, and IMO with the signal's im getting i wont be able to tell the difference between them. i dont care if its a bit blurry, im not gonna go out and spend a grand on a new TV, when the one ive got at the moment does a perfectly fine job, and it cost 50 3 years ago...
