I still own a TV that my wife and I bought 25 years ago and it works fine.
My newest TV is more then 5 years old, probably closer to 10 years. I buy
things when I need them and buy them for duration. With the price of
everything going up I bet it will be a few more years before I need, or will
buy, another TV.

I mean I have been dissapointed that out of the 400 or so channels here on

Just my opinion, but I know others that think the same.
