  2. I've been in the market for a new TV and based on the reviews on this particular HDTV I think this one will do the trick. I upgraded my DISH Network employee services to HD so I definitely think with the help of this TV my programming will look amazing! Plus add HD Free for Life in the mixture and I think I'll have the best TV entertainment ever! Can’t' wait! :)
