Are you going to order off of newegg? If so, drop me a line, I need to upgrade memory tooI'm poor and in college, this is a 2.0ghz refurb ($849!). I can't see spending another $150 for a .1 ghz bump in the processor. Next stop, more memory!
Yes you can. With a standard TV, you need to buy a set-top box. This tv had a built-in digital tuner.What's wrong with rabbit ears? Can't you pick up free OTA HD signals in the US with any antenna?
Here, for the most part, you need to buy a set-top box for HDTV and most people think of HDTV as a premium service you need to pay so much more for.

That said, people always say "You spent $800 on a TV, and you don't even have cable?"
I've never had cable, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything (especially the $60 a month bill). When something good comes out, I hear about it, and download it. But, yeah. I do have about 20 digital channels, about 10 of those are HD, and about 7 of those are in english.
and im not gonna bother with iphone anymore... rather wait for the Gphone to come out and get that instead.
We get a few SD Canadian channels down here Back when I was a kid, Global(?), and CBC were great ways to watch all the good American shows on two channels without having all the shows overlap each others time slot.TVs that have a QAM tuner can pickup OTA HD signals and even though most LCDs being sold here have them, you only get CBC over the air and even then you need a clear line of sight to the trasmitter.
I'm moving out in a few weeks and I've been contemplating my living expenses and I just can't see myself spending hundreds on an STB and then paying some $70 for full cable. I might have to do that though if I can't get any OTA channels where I'm moving... downloading HD rips is such a bitch.
Neither am I. I bought an iPhone for someone as a gift and I got to play around with it for a few hours and as I suspected it's very gimmicky. It's missing a lot of phone and connectivity features or it's very hard to get to them, and it's not that great for multimedia considering you need to convert them to MP4.
