RE: "Blu Ray" expected to take off - Survey
Thanks for the info.
I have a few friends with HDTVs (40 and larger), but they don't seem interested in paying more money for a sharper picture.
I just got my first HD TV today...42" Samsung Plasma 720p for about $1200. It would cost another $300-400 to get one to reach 1080p, which I wouldn't use anyways (again, Canadians get ripped a bit on cost).
I have no desire to get ripped off on HD content right now. HD TV channels here require you to spend $15/month for a new box, plus premium pricing on the channel bundles (besides, most channels I watch aren't offered in HD yet). Blu-Ray movies cost $10-20 more than the same movie on DVD. The prices are still taking advantage of early adopters, so maybe we'll see it drop to a more reasonable level in a few years.
The only thing I might drop money on will be a $50 upconverting DVD player, depending on how things look.
