My parents, after years with a small TV, finally got a big one. Paradoxically, however, this just makes the programming look really bad. Most big budget movies look like they were filmed on a HandiCam when they’re blown up bigger than 19 inches. These type of TVs really need HD, so it’s great that Dialog TV is finally bringing it to Sri Lanka, even if only a few channels.
It looks like Star Movies, AXN, Ten Sports, and National Geographic will be available, at a hefty surcharge of RS. 990 per month. Plus a one-time Rs. 2,990 payment, which I think includes a DVR (thing which can record stuff for later). Seems pretty cool, perhaps my parents should get it. I, on the other hand, just stream everything online and blow up my Internet bill.
