Before anyone asks: No, I don’t have a Blu-ray player. I don’t have a fancy television, either. In fact, I’m just happy I’m not still watching VHS tapes. I’m a little slow when it comes to adopting new technology. Ahem. But, um, I hear that Blu-ray is really cool and everything. Now excuse me while I go adjust the antenna on my black-and-white console TV
But if you’ve been thinking about going Blu-ray this holiday season, check out this Blu-ray deal at Amazon—buy the Samsung player, pick 8 movies to go with it and save $200. Basically you’ll end up with your ~$200 player and 8 movies for around $160 or so. Which seems like a pretty smokin’ deal.
Hey, MY TV has an antenna! (It’s definitely color and otherwise fairly new and high-tech, but still…) We’re some of those cable-less people who prefer it that way, since we prefer not to watch much television. Don’t disparage the cable-less! 😉
dang work, getting in the way of my bargains! Missed out. 🙁
We are also cable-less, and I wish we had an antenna so we could watch our local channels! We are Netflix fans, and we watch episodes online, and truly, it is great that way. My kids don’t veg out for hours in front of the television.
Less than a year ago, we replaced a vintage 1975 TV with a new flatscreen. The difference is… ummm… incredible. But we still don’t have cable, and we get no reception so it’s basically a netflix and video game console!
Nothin’ wrong with a VHS every now and then. I like to call mine “TiVo.”
