I thought that this was funny (and sad).


From ATT Broadband FAQ:

Quote:



Q. Is Digital Cable the same thing as HDTV (High Definition TV)?


A. No. HDTV refers to a specific kind of digital signal format that requires a special television set, which currently costs between $2000 and $3000! Digital Cable, on the other hand, works with the cable already wired to your existing TV. So there's no expensive equipment to buy.
It almost sounds like they are trying to scare people (check out the !)

Aside from the fact that HDTVs have started selling for below $2000

in cases, this does not seem inaccurate to me. In fact, they could have

well gone with the $6000+ figures that other people are claiming HDTVs

cost.

It wasn't that the statement was inaccurate. I objected to the fact that they used the exclaimation point. It said to me, "You don't want that! It would leave you broke!"

Their saying to me. . .


"I can't sell you that right now and not any time soon!" Kind of reminds me of the joke (in your best German accent) " . . . and you will like it!"


But at least they are telling the truth, digital is not necessarily HD. This may belong on another thread and probably has been said, but does this remind anyone of the really early days of FM radio!
