Record 10m TV sets sold in the UK in 2009 - 26-January-2010, 06:15

Monday, January 25 2010

A record ten million TV sets were sold in the UK last year as the digital switchover and growing popularity of video gaming continues to boost demand, new research has revealed.
According to a report by GfK, large flat-screen TV sets were among the few consumer electronics products to retain robust demand during the ongoing economic slowdown. Over the past five years, around 32 million flat-screen models have been sold in the UK, reports The Daily Telegraph.
GfK director Nigel Catlow said that a drop in prices coupled with progress in the switchover and increasing demand for video games has helped encourage more people to invest in a new TV model.
In November last year, the switchover commenced at the Winter Hill transmitter group, which covers an estimated 7.2 million viewers in the Granada TV region. All other areas of the UK will make the transition to digital television by 2012.
Catlow highlighted that a Freeview integrated 32'' high definition TV set can now be purchased for under 300, which makes it a much less weighty purchase for consumers.
"This means a television is a much less considered purchase than it has been in the past, because it represents a far smaller proportion of someone's salary," he said. "So people are deciding to have it now."
The commercial launch of Freeview HD in the spring, along with Sky's forthcoming 3D TV channel, could further boost new TV sales over 2010.
Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and LG have all recently revealed plans to support Sky's 3D channel in the UK and Ireland with a range of new 3D-ready TV sets.
