Small TV screens... I used to have just a 21" TV 10 years ago or so. Now that the whole house is equipped with large HDTVs, though... Well, I increasingly find cinemas not worth it anymore.

Trying to watch movies in the cinemas around here is like trying to watch a Blu-Ray movie with the best sound... but with a 240p projector. Blurriness, anyone?
I have a LED tv screen of 42''and still I love going to movies.

I have a 50" 3DTV in the lounge, so there's no shortage of movie entertainment at our house.

But despite so, I like the atmosphere of cinemas and am planning to go very soon to watch Jane Eyre.

I do think that HDTVs are going to eat into cinema attendance sooner or later... especially cinemas that still use film-based projectors. Which is pretty much most cinemas at my place.

The only thing I go to cinemas for is the sound, and even then, headphones + my PC monitor should do better.

I have a TV plugin and with the appropriate wire used, I watch TV using my laptop's monitor.

Bleh, I can't afford a widescreen or high-flat or whatever those big TVs are.

I have a 50" LED in my room, as well as the living room and smaller ones -- I think 30-something" -- in the kitchen, balcony, and my brother's bedroom. However, I rarely watch TV unless it is football or anything related to the Family Guy and The Simpsons. I go to the movies every Saturday and sometimes Sunday.

I know someone who has a TV in every bathroom of his house.

I can't imagine having that many TVs in the house, I have an old TV/Video combo in my room that hasn't even been used for years.

Seriously, the last time I used that thing was in 2004, and that was only to dig up and play Pokemon Stadium 2 on my N64. XD;

Let's see... 2 TVs for the whole home for me. Both are HDTVs - the old CRT TV was finally dumped a year ago or so.

I also don't like that much TVs, but my dad does. He is a TV-freak-addict. I only use the one in my room before I hit the bed.

I have way too many old TVs somewhere in the closets. I remember one that had a little crack in the middle that I used to watch on it Pokemon and Tom and Jerry everyday.

When I used to live with my family, we only had a sing TV for all of us. It never actually resorted to conflicts, but our parents were always people of swift adequacy, so yeah.

I think I'm pretty glad that all the CRTs that we used to have are now dumped. These things were a chore to move around!

We have 2 TV's working with a cable output. One in the living room, and one in the basement. There's 2 TV's unplugged downstairs, although one got soaked from the rains after Irene. There's a final TV in my room, that I can only play my XBOX on, as there is no cable wire connecting to my TV.

My dad said something about removing all our old TV's...but they're big and clunky.

All the computers in my house are HDTVs with the exception of one CRT TV that is used in a room.

Also, I'm annoyed when trying to play older video games on an HDTV :/

When your TV doesn't upscale things well, things go horribly.

On the other hand, my PC's graphics card upscales things well enough to make sub-1080p content tolerable. Actually, more like, pretty good. Same goes with my 3DS and DS games.

I finally was able to convince my dad to ditch our old desktop after 7 years for a new one. Our new one has all that HDTV stuff in it. XD

It was the oldest, slowest, most horrible computer you could imagine. Took like 5 mins to load a webbrowser, for instance.

Our old computer had dial-up service, and that was a huge pain in the butt. Calls couldn't come in or out when someone was online. Thank goodness we got Broadband after getting our new computer, because it's so much faster, and calls can come in and out.

I think we had our old computer for about 8 years until water got spilled into the keyboard accidentally, we still had Windows 98. Windows 98 is so ancient...

People still have landlines? xD We got rid of ours years and years ago, since you can use a cellphone in a house, lol.

Landlines where I live are cheaper when a family with 4 members or more uses a single dialnum, than cells. I use a cell, too, but that's because I live by myself most of the time.

I don't have a cellphone, so right now I'm kind of glad that we have our home phone. =3= it's also a way for my mom to call the house without picking one of us to call on.
