PC-TV tuners aren’t that popular here in the U.S., at least not nearly to the extent of the popularity they enjoy in Europe and Asia. According to Research and Markets the market for PC-TV tuners is quickly moving from analog to digital, which makes sense.
The company says that in 2005 60.1% of PC-TV tuners shipped were analog. In 2006 that percentage dropped to 48.3% and in 2007 the percentage of analog tuners shipped was 39.7%. The drop coincides with the time frame for the expansion of digital broadcasts in Europe, Korea and Japan.
America is expected to see similar growth in digital PC-TV tuners leading up to 2009 when we move to digital broadcasts and growth is expected to continue in Europe and Asia as well. Research and Markets says that by 2012 30.8 million PC-TV tuners will be sold annually with a total retail value of $1.7 billion.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
