Consumers are slow to adopt digital television

AP -- For digital television, the numbers sound impressive: two million TV sets sold in the last three years.

However, John Orlando with the National Association of Broadcasters says most of those sets aren't being used to receive digital over-the-air broadcast signals. He says only about a quarter of a million of them have digital tuners capable of receiving those transmissions. Orlando says the vast majority of these digital TV sets are being used for watching DVD's.

Digital television has been slow to catch on among consumers for several reasons: a lack of programming in the early days and expensive TV sets. Today, there's much more digital programming.
