    I have a 42" LCD that is ~6 yrs old. If it were to die I'd probably replace it with a nice painting and some new speakers. My TV's main job lately is to stream music, which is a really stupid use of energy, technology, and sound quality.

    Done correctly, that's easily $200 worth of entertainment.

    I have contemplated accidently dropping off the roof.

    The cost of televisions vs the quality of content is really out of whack. Give me something worth watching and I'll consider buying a new TV

    We have a 32" Samsung TV that's about 6 years old. No cable bill as we use rabbit ears and get about 20 different channels. Don't really watch a lot of TV but it has a great picture and sound for watching movies on DVD that we get for free from the local library.

    This is actually part of the reason I want a new TV. A lot of these original series on HBO, Amazon prime, and Netflix are pretty damn good

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    There are far too many quality shows for me to even keep up with. I'd have to work less to watch it all. It's out there, IMO.

    . Over the air TV is best signal possible (been told by my EE husband). I'm on tallest hill in town 15 miles from Boston, probably same from Needham antennas. Our outdoor HD receiver has been quirky though - husband needs to check on it - but usually perfect reception from tons of stations (well, relative to a non-cable person lol). Haven't paid for cable since 1999 - well til we got cable Internet and cheaper to get bundle with cable - we just don't hook it up (used cable wire for antennae). Although we can use our xfinity acct to stream. Probably saved enough to cover our ski house down payment over those years lol. (Think about that youngins who say you can't save - give up your TV!)
