A new survey from Ipsos-Insight shows that while knowledge about HD is growing among U.S. consumers, many still view HDTV as too pricey.
Among the survey’s findings:

- Eighty-eight percent of those who are aware of HDTV recall seeing an ad for HDTV in the past month (up from 79 percent two years ago)

Of the 45 percent who regarded themselves to be familiar with HDTV:
- Ninety-four percent understand that HDTV can deliver a superior quality picture
- Eighty-seven percent understand HDTV comes with digital quality surround sound
- Ninety-two percent understand they will get to see content on a full widescreen picture
