More DVRs Coming [8:28 am]

Study: DVR adoption on the rise

The rising adoption of DVRs–which use a hard drive to record television shows–has much to do with the competition between cable and satellite television providers. Initially, satellite providers promoted DVR-equipped set-top boxes to match cable companies’ investment in video-on-demand, and now, the cable industry is being forced to respond, IDC said.

[...] While the DVR market in Western Europe resembles that of the United States, Japanese consumers are starting to look to combination DVR/DVD-recording devices. Those hybrids will see shipments of 11.8 million in 2008, adding up to nearly 40 percent of the worldwide market, with the vast majority of the shipments occurring beyond the U.S. market, IDC said.

Wonder how the broadcast flag will influence the sales of those devices in the US?
