Only 4.8 million households have digital TVs, and most of those don’t even have digital-broadcast tuners to receive HDTV signals over the airwaves. Customers use the sets to watch DVDs. Nearly half the USA’s 1,300 TV stations beam at least some prime-time shows in crystal-clear HDTV.

HDTV leaps ‘last hurdle’ in transition: “TV makers and cable companies have tentatively reached a landmark agreement aimed at kick-starting the tepid rollout of digital high-definition TV (HDTV) – and eventually eliminating the need for cable set-top boxes, say people close to the matter.” Source: USA Today: Money
