With UHD TV's priced out of the reach of most consumers and the fact that their is little 4K content and with 3D being a flop, TV manufacturers are left with little to offer this holiday season (accept price cuts).


Market research firm IHS today released its prediction for the worldwide TV market for the year 2013. The firm estimates that TV shipments will fall to an estimated 226.7 million units this year – a 5% drop from the 238.2 million units shipped in 2012. This would make 2013 the second straight year that TV shipments have declined, after a 7% drop in shipments last year over the 255.2 million TVs shipped in 2011.  Sound like the PC industry?


TV sales in Japan and Western Europe in particular have been declining for three years in a row.


Let's hope for some great price drops on HDTV's this holiday season!  Maybe it will be the excuse you need to move your existing HDTV to your bedroom and get a larger one for the primary viewing area?!


Anyone going to bite with a nice price drop?

What I wonder is if the sales decline is mainly 40" and smaller.

I went big boxing the other day for leftover summer clearance. It is mind numbing how much utter crap is out there $400 and under.

That stuff can't continue to sell.


PC sales are an obvious decline with tablets and phablets doing as much as they do.
