I don't think we'll ever reach the point where EVERYONE has high-def. Digital, yes, high-def, no
Most lower end TV's now that are SD have built-in ATSC tuners. DVD's look identical on those to analog TV's, but they tune digital stations. Those will still make up the bottom 30% of the market even 20 years from now, IMHO. I would predict that in 20 years, 70% of households will have some form of a high-def TV.
