When I came back from my Europe vacation almost 2 months ago I discovered a new and big shiny object in our home. Why my dad and mom have bought a new LED TV! Thing is dad didn’t say a thing when he fetched sis and me back from airport. Cheeky him. I don’t agree with them by simply spending few Ks buying a new TV when the current one is still in good condition. Better keep the money for emergency matter. Well what’s done is done. I guess they beh tahan wanting to watch movies/series in high definition kua.
Dad pestered me to call Astro for setting up B.yond HD few days later in early June but B.yond didn’t arrive in our home until 2 weeks ago. They said they’re out of stock wor.
Now here’s what I like about the new Astro B.yond HD:
1. HD shows are so clear.
2. I get more Astro channels and get to save $$ a little because of my subscription to Super Pack 4.
What I don’t like about Astro B.yond HD and LED TV:
1. The setup box takes such a long time to boot. Nearly 40 seconds… crazy!!! I timed it.
2. Non HD channels are so not-clear. Ohh… my beloved KBSWorld channel.
Update: KBSWorld will convert to HD come Sept 3rd 2012. Yipee!!! KBSWorld HD is now available at Astro ch392 (16th Oct 2012 onwards). WOOHOOO!!!
Now I can only hope that all channels will be turned to HD real soon or else where is the joy man of owning a HD TV and Astro B.yond HD, right???
