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.
You need do a reality check. TV formats take a long time to transition. Just do some searching to see how long it took for the transition from B & W to Color. A decade is a very short time.
