Study predicts growing popularity of PC TV tuners

A new study from ABI Research shows the total worldwide PC TV tuner market growing from about 15 million units in 2006 to 41 million units in 2011.

The study, "PC TV Tuner Market Outlook," finds that while the TV tuner card hasn't developed as quickly as some have predicted, its slow takeoff has less to do with the technology than consumer awareness and support from a variety of players including the FCC.

According to ABI Research, popular acceptance of TV via computer will come sooner and in higher volume in Europe than in North America because of the generally greater awareness of digital television in Europe.
