It's not just a blu-ray player we're talking about here. All I have are old tube type television sets. The one I'm currently using, only because it has the larger screen, is a 19" built in 1992.
I could buy a new tv right now, since my money hit the bank over night. But after paying the rent, a personal loan, phone bill, and making a credit card payment, if I did buy a tv today, I wouldn't be eating for the rest of the month.
