Both my Fiance and I have HD tv’s. I work for a major cable company and have a 40 inch HD tv in my office so I just HAD to get a larger one for my home…LOL. It really does make a difference when watching sports and movies in HD. TLC and TNT are broadcast in HD and those are two of my favorite channels so I am happy =)

 

P.S. If you are watching an analog channel (generally 1-99), you can use the “zoom” key on your TV remote in order to have the picture fill your entire screen. I don’t like the black bars either.

Yes, we have an HDTV in our bedroom, and I love it!  Hopefully next year I’ll be able to convince Fiance to get rid of the regular one (flat but not HDTV) in our living room.  It really does make a big difference.

We are also “high-def” peoples! We have one downstairs and we really need one upstairs too! I love it because it’s so crisp and clear!

I think its HD and SD (standard definition, Fiance makes commercials or I wouldn’t know what this means). 

We watch everything in HD. I was so happy when we got Bravo in HD because I never had to watch SD anymore because it was the last channel I watched a lot that hadn’t switched. We watched everything so that the SD was stretched to fit the whole screen (helps keep the pixels from burning out I’m told) and I HATED that. Sports in HD are so much better! We get an MLB package because Fiance is a major braves fan and we probably wouldn’t see them otherwise and that is the only time we get stuck watching things in SD. Hopefully our cable company will fix that soon because I hate it.

What’s “low def”?  Seriously, High Def, HD, 1080, it’s all worth it.

We have a huge 60″ HDTV upstairs in the “man room” LOL. But that’s the one room the dogs aren’t allowed in (says FI) so I never go up there. And then because the dogs and I are always downstairs, Fiance ends up staying downstairs like 98% of the time. It’s a very strange thing haha.

It is SO much better though, like pp’s have said, esp. sports. When we were in our apt. and that was the TV we always used, Fiance would come home from work and I would be watching something in “low def” and he would like freak out! haha would change it to the high def channel and be like “are you crazy?” LOLOL. I mean yes, it looks better, but half the time I would never think to put it on there.

We watch a lot of sports and Discovery channel, so having the high Def is a big difference.  On dish, the channels are right next to each other, but we hardly ever watch the non-HD channels anymore, even on the local channels.

Is there any other way? The only reason I watch comedy central in regular-def is that lack of DVR space.. otherwise, everything just looks better in HD!!

I definitely prefer Hi-Def though I do watch shows that dont come in Hi-Def and its not too big of a deal.  Its definitely best to watch in Hi-Def for sports (especially hockey) but I watch all my network shows (ABC, CW, etc) in Hi def too

Our tv is 13 years old and is starting to go. I can’t wait to buy a new tv, but since we are moving in the next few months, I hope ours lasts until then!

After watching HD… it’s really hard to go back. Then again, after watching a 62″ TV… it’s really hard to go in the other room and watch a 32″ screen.

I never thought I was missing out… but then lovely Mr. Lemon showed me the way to TV heaven and I haven’t looked back.

I have good old SD. I’m sure that when Fiance and I get married, we’ll end up with HD. As long has I have digital cable and DVR I’ll be just as happy with or with out HD.
