Flat panel TV sales stalling

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Flat panel TV sales are beginning to stall in the United States.

Shipments are forecast to drop annually for the first time ever this year.

According to a report from market research firm IHS I-Suppli, flat panel shipments are expected to weaken to 37.1 million units.

That would be down 5% from last year.

This drop is being blamed for the maturity of the U.S. television market.
