DTT TV set sales exceed targets

According to Simavelec, in 2009 TV set sales were 7.3 million, 1.3 million more than expected.
These buoyant sales figures are attributed to the progressive DTT switch over, the decrease in the cost TV sets and the availability of HD services.
All TV sets sold in France now include at least a DVB-T/MPEG-2 tuner and those with the additional HD label must also be capable of decoding and displaying MPEG-4, HD programming.
