DTTV prepares for growth
Television broadcasting has already begun the most difficult and comprehensive transition in its history–converting from analog to digital. The nascent digital terrestrial television (DTTV) market, whose signals were only received by 1.3 million households at the end of 2000, will experience an annual growth rate of 100 percent, totaling more than 87 million households worldwide by 2006. This will result in revenues from consumer digital TV (DTV) equipment increasing from $1.6 billion in 2000 to $32.5 billion in 2006.
These figures are found in Allied Business Intelligence's (ABI) report "Digital TV: The Changing Face of Broadcasting."
