Number of TV Sets Decreasing

Posted: May 3, 2011 by clgiblin in Uncategorized

The number of homes in the United States with television sets has dropped for the first time in almost 20 years. Now, only 96.7 percent of American households own sets, instead of the previous 98.9 percent. Why is there a decline in TV sets? One reason according to Nielsen Company is poverty. Low-income households no longer have a television because they cannot afford the new digital sets and antennas. Another reason is technology. Young people, such as college graduates, are substituting their media diet of television and movies for the Internet. Although a majority of American households still own televisions, Americans are finding ways to live without them. Will not purchasing televisions be a fast growing trend?
