Half of Households Have HDTV Displays

NEW YORK: The Television Bureau of Advertising has released its December figures for HDTV adoption. As of last month, nearly 53 percent of U.S. TV households had a monitor capable of displaying hi-def images. Nearly 46 percent had an HDTV set, e.g., a display equipped with an ATSC tuner. A small portion of HD display owners continued to lack the high-resolution content those screens are designed for--just under 43 percent received at least one HD network or TV station.
