1% of HD TV owners can access HD content


by David Allen

There is no doubt that HD is a much better quality of picture, but for people who already own HD equipment there is little choice of HD content around for them to choose from, according to a report by Screen Digest.

Within Europe it is estimated that around twenty per cent of the households with TVs are HD ready, but the amount of those households that can actually get an HD service is less than one per cent.

It has been suggested that this is the reason why there has been a low take up of HD, not just here in the UK, but throughout Europe.

There are just about one hundred HD channels available in Europe, but these are mainly accessed through satellite and cable although there is a free to air terrestrial HD TV service running in Sweden.

BBC HD and Channel Four HD are the only free to air channels in the UK and ITV do broadcast some programmes but these can only received via Freesat and Sky.
