I had thought about satallite at one time, then I rented a car with Sirius or XM (don't remember which) and it kept cutting out all the time. Don't know if I want to pay a monthly fee for that. I know that HD is free, just want to make sure that the reception is as good as is advertised.
As far as the cost of equipment, I saw that the JVC is under $200 and has the HD receiver built in. HERE'S THE UNIT I'M LOOKING AT.
There are other brands that are "HD Ready" but you need to buy a seperate receiver to get the HD stations, kinda like getting a cable box to get HD and digital channels for TV.
