    I would almost bet I'll be buying a PPV this weekend since I'm getting my first 1080p set on Saturday...and no other source for 1080p.

    For the price of 22 CNMAHD movies you can buy a Blu-ray player. :D

    Good luck with your new TV!

    Thanks! Actually, I think I will be buying a Blu-ray player on Sunday...but I get the TV on Saturday!

    Once i get the Blu-ray, we'll see how much I still like the premiums and PPVs, since I have Netflix already.

    Since you're already on Netflix, you should pickup a Blu-ray player that streams Netflix. It is pretty cool.

    I got the Samsung BD-P2550 a few months back. Very happy with it. Streaming quality better than I expected.

    Have fun on Saturday!

    Seen that in our local wal-mart ad. To bad the brand is terrible and I would not touch it with a 10 foot pole. Magnavox :down:

    Walmart also has the Samsung BD-1590 (Really a BD1600, with a slight model # change for Walmart) $238. You get the Blu-Ray Live features, Streaming Netflix, and Pandora Radio.

    It turns out I was too busy to do a PPV this weekend or buy a Blu-ray player, although i did get the TV.

    I'll probably order the Samsung BD-1600 from BB today.

    It will be interesting to compare Blu-ray with DirecTV Cinema.

    Delray...
    Just a guess, I bet blu-ray will look better.
