You apparently live in a country that hasn't embraced digital video yet. Just because it doesn't exist where you live, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The problem in your country isn't LCD or digital... it's your bandwidth options. I live in Los Angeles, which is a city built on media. We've had digital broadcast and cable and streaming for years. When it was first introduced, it was full of artifacts like you describe, because the infrastructure for pushing high bandwidth video wasn't in place yet. But now those times have changed in LA. We enjoy a wide selection of broadcast choices and equipment of all quality levels and price ranges. We have fiber optic connections in our homes that allow for massive throughput rates. If you lived here, you would be able to put together a system in your home as good as the best movie theaters. Maybe that doesn't exist yet where you live, but I can tell you that it does exist, because I've built it in my own house and I'm enjoying it almost every day.
I read people's posts online talking about how terrible Netflix's quality is- low resolution, banding, buffering constantly. It puzzles me, because I always get a solid clean HD image from Netflix. I started asking questions of these people in a few threads, and I found out that they were all in rural areas with regular cable internet. Their problem wasn't with Netflix. It was their internet provider and the obsolete infrastructure of the cable running to their home.
Your off axis viewing problem is because your family chose the wrong TV set. The artifacts are due to your bandwidth being insufficient due to old infrastructure. If you want good quality now, your solution would be a much better monitor and a blu-ray player.
