If your parents were lucky, they might have had a television in their
house. In the middle of last century, television was a pure luxury that
few could afford. These days, however, several televisions can be found
in nearly every home. There are TVs in living rooms, dens, bedrooms and
even kitchens. And those one or two channels that your parents watched
have blossomed into an endless choice of programs from around the planet.

The increased interest in television programming has not been lost on the
manufacturers. The technology has improved steadily over the years.
Today's families have a huge selection to choose from, including HDTV.
The new high-definition format can require the purchase of an entirely
new television set, although some newer models are upgradeable to HDTV
technology.

Adding full high definition capability to your HDTV upgradeable TV is
simple, but you'll need to keep a couple of points in mind. In order to
receive HDTV broadcasts, you will need a special antenna. With HDTV on
DIRECTV, you'll require a special satellite dish. And of course, you need
to purchase a specialized receiver. Similar to a conventional cable box,
an HDTV receiver is connected directly to your HDTV upgradeable set and
used to switch channels.

When you're choosing an HDTV receiver, make sure you get one that will
work well for you now, and in the future. Here are a few features to keep
in mind:

Affordability
You may have noticed that many of the most reputable manufacturers are
now producing high definition televisions at prices the average consumer
can afford. HDTV is no longer the luxury it once was, and virtually
anyone can enjoy the benefits of high-definition technology. If you find
yourself with a little extra cash to spend, consider giving the new gold
standard in home entertainment a try. It's a decision your whole family
will applaud.

Big, Big Picture
If you're a sports fanatic or a movie buff, you'll want to experience the
complete theatre and stadium experience. In this case, an HDTV with a
very large screen of over 59 inches is for you, and it can be yours for
under $2,000. The RCA 61-inch HDTV Projection Television is available at
http://www.dmartstores.com for $1,877. If you're looking to go even
bigger, consider the Toshiba 65-inch Flat Screen Projection TV, available
from http://www.ibuyplasma.com for only $1,644. Sharp, Hitachi, Philips,
Mitsubishi and Zenith all make HDTV sets with similarly large screens
that can be found online for under $2,000.

Shopping online will not only save you time, but can also save you a good
deal of money. From the comfort of home you can easily buy inexpensive
HDTV accessories. A quick Internet search will find satellite receivers
like DIRECTV. Look for brand names that offer superior quality and great
warranties, like JVD, Toshiba, Hughes, Mitsubishi, Sony, Hitachi, Zenith,
Pros can, Panasonic and Samsung SIR-TS360.

HDTV receivers are designed to deliver the highest resolution, and will
display video from VCRs, DVD players, satellite and cable TV, game
consoles and any other video source.

Network shows are broadcast in HDTV format in almost every major city.
You may have noticed the "Simulcast in HDTV" logo at the beginning of
some of your favorite shows like C.S.I. DIRECTV offers an all-HDTV
channel called HDNET, an all HDTV channel. With DIRECTV, you can also
watch shows like The Sopranos on HBO in high definition. There is a good
selection of HDTV programming available, and more is being added all the
time.

HDTV can bring your television viewing to a whole new level, but you need
to do your homework to make sure it's a pleasurable and successful level.
Shop around and you will find a great quality high-definition television
at a good price.
