Significant Gap Between HDTV Ownership and HD TV Subscriptions

Significant Gap Between HDTV Ownership and HD TV Subscriptions

HDTV ownership is growing, albeit at a much slower pace thanks to the global economy. I know several people who have bought a new HDTV and proudly shown it off to their friends. Then you sit down to watch a fight or a big game on it and you realize they didn’t spring for the HD service.

That is sort of like buying a new sports car without springing for gas, what's the point. The reason is usually the same, I don’t watch enough TV for HD or I can’t tell any difference. Whatever. If you can’t tell a difference in SD and HDTV programs, you need to rush to the optometrist right now.

It seems that getting a HDTV, but skipping on the HDTV programs isn’t uncommon. In-Stat reports that at the end of 2008 there were 39 million homes in the US with HDTVs installed, but a full 17 million of those homes lack HD programming. That is surprising, I guess there are lots of folks who wanted a thin TV, but don’t want to cough up the extra $10 per month for HD cable or satellite service.

About the Geek Mind

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.
