Hi-Def Set Ownership Grows

High-definition television sets are now found in one of every six homes in the United States, according to a new report from Leichtman Research Group. That’s up from one in every 14 homes just two years ago, the study found.

Not surprisingly, these sets are found in higher-income households. The mean annual income of a hi-def home is 42 percent above the overall average, and more than one-quarter of homes with annual incomes of more than $50,000 own a hi-def set.

The study also found that 26 percent of hi-def owners have more than one hi-def set, up from 11 percent last year.
