I bought my first SHARP AQOUS 37" HD set from QVC back in November 2008. Still going strong.


My first HD set I bought in Jan 2007. It is a Mitsubishi 46231 and I still have it although I have gotten a 55 inch from Samsung as my family room television. The MITS is also still going strong. I see that MITS is getting out of the LCD sets altogether now.

Well I still don't own an HDTV...yet,so would I want more HD channels? sure Dish Network's MPEG4 HD channels are a better picture than their MPEG2 SD channels, so that would be the channel I would watch:)

Ovation-HD is at the top of my list. This would be the closest thing to the return of VOOM's Rave Channel. Lots of good concerts in HD.
All I want is a Perfect DVR!

To each their own; I'd rather have QVC HD and dump all ESPN and RSN channels, none of which I ever watch…

And I would go the opposite way. Cut down on the shopping channels and keep the channels in SD, and make the RSN's HD. I don't need 4 or 5 or however many shopping channels that Dish carries. I don't need all of the religious channels either. But I would love to see the RSN's in HD. It's a fairly inexpensive package, but would gladly pay more to see this happen.

I would too if you, not me, pay Dish for the RSN's in HD. Right now the shopping channel folks are a source of revenue for Dish which helps to keep the price down for all of us. Sports channels drive the price up for all of us, a fact I truly resent since I have to pay for HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, etc. - channels I want - and pay for your sports channels.

And I would love a no sports package. I doubt very seriously if either shopping or sports will ever be pulled so I lock out what I don't want to see in the guide and enjoy what I do get.

I dropped the core package, to avoid paying the sports tax. One of the better decisions I have made in my life.
