Feigning normality since 1973
Seven months is not enough
Filed in: TV & Movies.
I got an itch today to check out what was available in the way of TV sets. There's nothing wrong with my current one, except for the fact it's analogue, and New Zealand's going to shut down analogue transmissions in 2012 in favour of digital. The digital Freeview service was launched early last year and terrestrial Freeview broadcast is supposed to start in April.
I ambled into the LV Martins across the road from work to have a look at the TV sets they had there, and in a brief conversation with a salesperson, discovered that none of the TV sets had a digital decoder built in. I can buy a plain ol' LCD TV set, but I'd have to buy a set top box, and frankly I can't see how you'd balance one on one of those thin LCD sets. Tsk.
