Survey: HDTVs Continue to Be Hot With Consumers; Interest in 3D TV Almost Nil Despite Hype at CES

Jan 29, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A new study from the Opinion Research Corp. shows the consumers like HDTVs, but their interest in purchasing sets that are 3D capable is practically non-existent, reports Digital Trends.

According to the report, the study said that  "nearly two-thirds of U.S. households now have an HDTV, and another 12 percent are looking to purchase one in the next two years."

That means by 2013, three out of four U.S. households will have HDTVs, the report says.

On the 3D front the article says, "despite all the hype over 3D technology at this year’s CES show in Las Vegas, only five percent of survey respondents said they plan to buy a 3D-capable television in the next two years."

  1. Just make great TV. Remember content is king. When the magic black box and glasses,soon to be released? Make there way into living rooms very soon, the at home theatrical experience will be complete. In a few years or so true 3D ready TV’s will be the norm. Joe The Plumber is not going to dump his $2500. 1080P TV any time soon.

  2. I can’t help but think there are more useful situations toward which we should be directing our interest and also our assets. What number of periodical pages are wasted with full-color snaps of numerous the famous people, and just how much data transfer is thrown away every week by incessant ramblings of star groupies?

  3. Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out
