Today, I found out my mom is getting rid of cable TV. My dad and I bought her a 700 dollar plasma screen TV for Christmas. FML

Too bad you can only watch cable TV on a $700 plasma screen TV. Wouldn't it be great if you could use some form of external device, like a DVD or Blu-ray player, to watch movies on it? It would also be nice if you could subscribe to some form of service, like Netflix, that delivered those movies to your house. Alas, you definitely can't do any of that with a $700 plasma screen TV. Just go ahead and return it; it's completely useless now.

Yeah right you guys just wanted to justify buying it for yourselves.

Why? Why would she possibly do that? D:

Do they even still make plasma TVs? Im pretty sure they stopped because LCD is 100x better and cheaper

Plasma is way better than LCD but more expensive you want good and have the cash get the new Led TV .

stinchbird... i think I love you.

Not really... Plasma has better black levels and usually faster refresh rates, but not in the case of the (expensive) 120hz LCDs or LEDs. Plasmas are just more expensive and the quality difference isn't as apparent anymore.

So true number two. And OP, it could be that she doesn't want to lose FOX, so she's gonna switch over to another cable provider

Exactly what I was going to say #2. OP, YDI for buying her a television when she obviously does not care one bit about it.

A TV isn't worthless just because it no longer displays most shitty network programming on it. There's other forms of media, you know.

Exactly. I loathe TV, but love DVD.

who the fuck needs a 700 dollar plasma screen tv?

lmao i hope you kept the receipt. ur guys tho. i'm sure you'll either find a use for it somewhere else or someone to buy it off you.

well now you can complement your gift with satellite service such as HD DirecTV so she can enjoy movies with a better quality picture

thats crazy!!!!
