Digital video recorders (DVRs) will grow from an installed base of seven million households at the end of 2004 to 55 million by 2010, a new study by JupiterResearch predicts.
Though not yet as ubiquitous as the VCR or the DVD, DVRs will be in 47 percent of U.S. households in the next five years, the Darien, CT-based technology research firm predicted in its new report, U.S. DTV Forecast, 2005-2010.
Regarding HDTV, the researchers predicted that HDTV monitors will grow from an installed base of 13 million in 2004 to 74 million by 2010. However, the researchers estimated that less than four million HDTV households were receiving HDTV service at the end of last year, a number predicted to grow to 69 million by 2010.
