Nearly half of all U.S. households have a DVR

New consumer research from Leichtman Research Group (LRG) found that 44 percent of TV households in the United States have at least one DVR, and one-third of DVR households have more than one DVR - representing 14 percent of all households having multiple DVRs. In 2005, just 8 percent of all households had a DVR. In addition, 73 percent of all digital cable subscribers have used VOD, with 87 percent of this group having watched an on-demand program or movie in the past month. Overall, about 62 percent of digital cable subscribers used on-demand in the past month - compared with 52 percent last year. "On-demand TV viewing in the forms of DVR and VOD, as well as Netflix streaming, have significantly increased in terms of usage and popularity over the past few years," said Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst for LRG. "Yet these on-demand TV platforms remain largely complementary to traditional TV services and viewing, with about 90 percent of all TV viewing in the U.S. still being via live TV."

Stores gear up for "dogfight" in TV aisles

The television aisles of top U.S. retailers are poised for a hard-fought contest this holiday season as chains take little chances with budget-conscious shoppers. Unlike last year when some such as Best Buy held the line on discounts and promoted only high-end TVs, many retailers told Reuters this past week that they plan to do whatever it takes to get the customer through the door. For the consumer, expect to see price cuts of up to 40 percent from a year ago on big-screen TVs, plus free shipping deals and even a 36-month financing option, in the run-up to "Black Friday" on November 25, the unofficial start of the holiday selling season.

How Sonos plans to go mainstream & double in growth this holiday season

It's been the year of smart, streaming music companies. And if Sonos has anything to say about it, 2011 will also be the year of the smart speaker. As Sonos prepares for the upcoming holiday season, it's bringing its wireless speaker system to mainstream retail outlets like Target, where it will be featured prominently in store displays. Sonos speakers have built-in compatibility with many popular streaming services including Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, Rhapsody and iRadio. "We set out to be the Bose of the digital age," said co-founder Tom Cullen in a VentureBeat interview. Cullen added that between cloud-based subscription music services and hardware systems like the ones he's worked on, "It's the best time in history to be a music lover." Target is just one part of Sonos' plan to infiltrate the consciousness of the average consumer. "In the last few weeks, we've added almost 3,000 retail locations that are selling our products," said Cullen. "Sonos has been selling in consumer electronics places for years. Target for us was a big change … And they have a huge customer base that looks to them to introduce them to new ideas."
