HDTV sets in a third of US homes

Consumer research from Leichtman Research Group has found that 34 per cent of households in the US have at least one high definition television (HDTV) set – approximately double the percentage of households that had an HDTV set two years ago.

The growth of HDTV sets was largely driven by on-going consumer purchasing of TV sets coupled with a dwindling supply of lower-end non-HDTV sets being sold. Overall, 22 per cent of all households purchased a new TV set in the past 12 months, with 43 per cent of this group spending over $1,000 on a new TV.
