Via Ken Radio - http://kenradio.com More Than One HDTVA new study shows one in six households in the United States now have at least one high definition-capable TV (HDTV), up from one out of every fourteen households just two years ago according to from Research Group. Yet, as much as ever, a disparity exists in HDTV ownership by household income level. Millions of HDTV sets have been sold in the US in the past year, and more homes than ever are actually watching HD programming. Yet even with the price of HD sets decreasing, we see that growth of HD is being driven by those who can most afford to buy one, which in an increasing number of instances includes households with more than one HDTV set. With just two and a half years to go before the digital TV transition takes place, two-thirds of Americans remain unaware of the pending analog cut-off, helping to explain why this deadline has had little impact on the purchase of HD and digital TVs to date.
