I can watch Youtube videos on my blu ray player or my Directv HD DVR but they are horrible looking.
You had a 25" black and white tv? I remember my first b&w. It was a 13 inch with the VHF/UHF knobs with some sweet rabbit ears! But I agree, I never watch anything nowadays that is NOT in HD. I just got Uverse and am still unsure about its quality over Comcast. I am only a week in though...waiting on football season.
