American families are becoming stay-at-home families More and more American families are spending their evening and week-end leisure time in the convenience of their own homes rather than pursuing outdoor interests.

The factor contributing towards this has been the surge in popularity of home entertainment units These extremely functional pieces of furniture bring together in one place all the modern electronic equipment that families consider necessary for modern life.

This equipment includes the basics such as wide-screen television; VCR unit and DVD player; along with space for the storage of the family's educational DVDs; music DVDs and movies. The more technically advanced families would be familiar with the latest trends in TV developments and would be using a satellite TV provider. They would be fully aware of the advantages and viewing benefits that satellite transmission can bring.

Great Public Acceptance of Flat-Screen TVs

The improvement that's had the greatest public acceptance in home entertainment technology in recent years has been the introduction of wide-screen television. These devices represent the very best in viewing TV pictures and attempt to replicate the experience of being in a cinema. Most TV manufacturers are promoting wide-screen televisions as their principal product as these TVs provide the majority of sales. The public have readily accepted these TVs as 'must have' units to complement their home entertainment life-style.

Wide-screen televisions use one of two technologies in their design, either LCD (liquid-crystal display) or Plasma. Initially Plasma TV grabbed the major share of the market. However its continuing high price let LCD into the market so that today this technology looks like becoming the dominant product. Each system has its pros and cons but one recent development should swing the war in favor of LCD. The state of California is about to pass legislation prohibiting the sale of plasma receivers because of their excessively high power consumption. So for the time being the LCD system is the winner.

The major manufacturers are continuing to spend huge amounts of money on R and D to improve their products' efficiency and meets the expectations of the buyers.

Satellite TV makes its Appearance

An event that had a significant impact on a family's viewing experiences was the start of satellite TV. This service was introduced in the mid 90s in competition to the services provided by the cable companies. To put it bluntly, satellite TV has captured the minds of the market. With the ever-increasing number of subscribers, satellite TV is causing all sorts of problems for the cable companies. The larger number of channels on offer; the improvement in picture and sound quality; the lack of transmission interruptions; the lower monthly fees; and the overall impression of being a much more assertive and progressive aspect of the TV industry is causing a huge decline in cable subscribers.

HDTV takes viewing to another Level

The introduction of HDTV (high definition television) will change the public's perception of TV forever. HDTV gives the viewer a much improved picture quality and sound presentation, far superior to the older format. Sports and 'action' movies benefit most from HD transmission. Most families that have HDTV and a HDTV programming package provided by one of the satellite TV companies would never return to the SD format. For them, the introduction of HDTV and HDTV program channels has been the most beneficial of the recent improvements within the television industry.

HDTV premium packages consisting of some of the public's favorite channels and a comprehensive range of new movies is the center point of a family's home entertainment.

To experience HDTV, the viewer needs to have a television capable of receiving the HD signal - this is now a standard feature on new TV sets; perhaps a HD tuner; and a contract with a TV program provider for a HD package.

Satellite TV Providers at the forefront of Technological Changes

The two major satellite TV program providers offer their subscribers the very latest in reception equipment and technology. Both the DirecTV HDTV packages and the Dish Network HDTV channels provide excellent program packages to suit all family members.

So no matter in which direction the television industry moves, from the point of view of both quality of programming, and the improvements in equipment, the growth in home entertainment will continue.
