At around 2.40, John Lewis arrived with the package. A surprisingly slim box that was easy to open although I don't reckon we'll be able to store it anywhere in the house - it's just too big!!)
The surprise was the weight of the pedestal stand, which seemed to weigh as much as the TV itself. Any way a few minutes later with David's help, it was in position. A few minutes more and it had tuned itself into all the analogue and satellite (FreeView) channels. FreeView didn't take long as it couldn't find a suitable signal - a job for the aerial man tomorrow!!!
Anyway, I hooked up the Sky box and WOW! what a picture!!! Stunning colours and very sharp too (and this ISN'T High Definition).
Ann was late home, but we stayed up and re-watched 'Gladiator' starring Russell Crowe - the film seemed even more impressive on a bigger screen.
So, if you're reading this and thinking 'should I buy a new TV', I'd say, buy one like this, you won't be disappointed!!
