Sky HD + Laser eye surgery = EYEGASM
The Sky man arrived today and installed the new Sky HD box in the lounge and connected it to our new LED TV. I’ve tried out Sky News HD and the picture quality is tenfold better than its SD channel, however this difference in quality is only exaggerated because standard definition content is renowned to actually look worse on an HD TV than an old SD one.
Avatar in HD happens to be on a Sky movies channel tonight so I can’t wait to see what that’s like! I’ve tried Sky 3D in a shop exhibition and it is truly breath taking, however the 3D technology is still in its infancy and so I think it would be wise to wait for the glassesless technology to become mainstream.
The crystal clear HD picture is absolutely incredibly and I would seriously recommend anyone on upgrading to it. However I must also stress the importance of wearing glasses or contact lenses if you need them, as my mother who is slightly short sighted doesn’t bother wearing them and therefore can’t tell the difference between HD and SD. I on the other hand have had laser eye surgery and now have better than 20:20 vision, and so to me the difference is most obvious.
