Global - Broadcasting HDTV & Datacasting


Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated since. In 2008 HDTV homes account for less than 10% of TV households worldwide and the majority of these are located in the US. Despite some governments mandating digital TV in its various forms, there was initially little evidence of a rush by consumers to buy it. This is slowly changing with the prices coming down somewhat and an increasing focus from the broadcasters on developing HD content. This report provides information and statistics on the current HDTV market including key developments, an historical overview and brief information on Datacasting. The methods to deliver digital TV such as cable, satellite and terrestrial are discussed in other reports.
