Report says 14 million homes will own HD hardware by year’s end

U.S. households owning some type of HD-capable hardware will nearly double this year to 14 million, according to a new study from Strategy Analytics.

According to the company’s “The Transition to Digital Television: FCC Mandates and Market Evolution” report, 8.7 million homes owned HD hardware last year.

Other findings:

  • Seven million HD homes will receive HD programming from cable, satellite or terrestrial broadcast this year;
  • Thirty-seven million households will receive HD programming by 2008;
  • Despite remarkable growth, digital television hardware market penetration won’t attain the government’s timetable for analog switchoff, thus the FCC must consider measures such government subsidies for set-top downconverters.
