Did you, or didn't you?
The Consumer Electronics Association predicted that nearly 2.6 million HDTVs were sold specifically for Super Bowl XLIII. They said that for the fourth year in a row the big game is the number one reason folks go out for an HDTV.
“Even in this tough economy HDTV growth has remained strong and
steady,” said Jason Oxman, CEA Senior Vice President, Industry Affairs.
“Since the early days of HD, sporting events have lead the way in
high-def broadcasts. Sixty percent of consumers said the Super Bowl is
one of their favorite sports to watch in HD. It is no surprise that
most Americans would not think of hosting a Super Bowl party without
watching the game in HD.”
