HDTVs

Let me get this straight.

You finally buy a good HDTV.

Then, you have to upgrade to digital cable to get HD…
Then, you have to upgrade to an HD-DVR or HD-Tivo…
Then, you have to get a home theater surround sound because the speakers on most HDTVs suck…
Then, you have to get a Blu-Ray player to take advantage of seeing your movies in HD (or at least an HDMI upconverting dvd player)…
Then, you have to buy a good HDMI cable…
Then, you have to upgrade your Netflix account to Blu-Ray or start paying extra when you purchase Blu-Ray dvds.
