Feel free to contact nielsen and get the 2011 numbers.
Well this new article (see above) is johnny on the spot.

"The report also found that HDTV penetration increased 6% to 63%, while high-definition TV service from multichannel video program distributors increased 11% to 42% of households. Households with a TV rose 1% to nearly 100% market penetration."
So in 2012, well over a decade after HDTV has been released, HDTV service is still in a minority of households, even those with HDTVs.

Why does HDTV service trail HDTV hardware?

Clearly the desire for HD content, from a provider or disc, does not match the desire for HDTV form factor.

So is HD cable/satellite a "failure" when compared to SD content? I mean, it's had a decade+ to overcome SD content and still hasn't.
