Uhm... in North America HDTV penetration was 18% at the end of last year, am I gonna have to dig up that article? :(
HDTV's are gonna have to drop to about half their current price to get the kind of penetration numbers that you guys are hoping for, and even then most of us will still wait until our current TV's die before tv shopping again.
I am talking about HDTV household.
Every person dosent have a TV. It's based on household. And it's a proven fact, there are around 35million HDTVs in america. 10% are re-buys. so that leaves 32.5million households with HDTV. (roughly) that is like 25.5% of households. ;)
