Is it time to buy HDTV? Your old television may be packing up, and it is time to buy a HDTV, now what? There are a few important things to consider before buying a HDTV set. In this article, you will discover some things that you need to consider, before buying a HDTV.

* Choosing The Size Of HDTV
* Know Your Needs

* About HDTV - The Difference Between Analog And High Definition
So, what is all the fuss about? What is the difference between analog and high definition? It may seem simple; however, it is kind of like digital watches compared with analog watches.

A better example would be to think about analog as pipe carrying water. This pipe can be thought of as a pipe that feeds water to your home. With digital, the main difference is that the pipe now becomes a pipe that feeds your street!

This is what makes high definition so much more prized. You not only get a much more real image, you also get high quality audio, which is not possible on analog televisions.

* Know Where You Are Going To Put Your New High Definition TV!
Knowing where you will put your new HD television is an important consideration. LCD HD TV sets are thinner than old CRT type televisions. Where the old CRT types used to take up so much more room, a LCD HD TV can be put even on a wall.

* Choosing The Size Of HD-TV
You can choose to go with the same size television you have now or with the advantage of smaller and light weight LCD high definition televisions, you may want to go with something bigger. A good idea is to look at online stores websites, to find the measurements for the television, and then check if it meets your needs.

* Know Your Needs
Another point to consider is what will you use the high definition television for? There is a choice of cable, satellite or broadcast. Determining your HDTV programming sources, basically determines what you will need to receive HDTV signals. I.e. HDTV antenna with built in HDTV tuner, HD cable box, HD satellite box or HD set top box.

* Where To Buy A HD-TV From?
There are many places where you can go to buy a television with high definition technology. Local stores are great, another option is online. Buying online is becoming more and more popular. And it makes sense why - better prices and delivered to your home.

* How Will You Get The HDTV To Your Home?
If you are going to buy from a local store, then it is likely that you will have to get the television to your home. However, some stores will deliver to your home; though you will need to check if there are any delivery charges.

* Who Is Going To Install The HDTV?
This is another consideration. Who is going to install your new television? Usually it will be you; however, if you do need to get someone else to install it, then a local store may be able to do it for a fee. Televisions today, are generally easy to set up, and don't need any technical expertise, so it may be a better option to go online, and get the television delivered to your home.
