Less than Half US HDTVs Showing HD

In a panel discussion at the recent HPA Tech Retreat, reported by “TV Technology”, Bob Seidel of CBS quoted data from Nielsen that reported that although 86% of US homes have an HD set, only 36% of households are watching in HD. The barriers to actually watching HD are the correct component or HDMI cabling to get the signal to the set, and ensuring that the HD set top box is actually tuned to the correct channel.
