Beefing Up HDTV to Increase Sales
A surprising number of Americans have yet to buy their first HDTV, while many others get the newest and biggest model with each release. But, industry experts are saying if the HDTV companies want to make money when the big TV boom hits between 2009 and 2011, they’ll need to install features that are currently extra-cost add-ons for the higher-end models.
The surveys have found that the features people most want with their TV–at no extra charge–are built in Internet access, 1080p resolution, PVR capabilities, and upgraded HDMI connection standards. Another big feature people are looking for is wireless capability. Imagine being able to hang your TV on the wall without all those unsightly cords attached to it and dangling down to the floor. Funny how the commercials never show the cords hanging from the TV, huh?
Let’s see if HDTV companies take the hint and give us what we want!
