Cool ''Nontraditional'' Devices Will Lead Growth of ATSC Receiver Market

''Nontraditional'' Devices Will Lead Growth of TV Receiver Market, According to ABI Research

NEW YORK, BUSINESS WIRE -- Of the more than 360 million digital terrestrial television (DTT) receivers expected to ship in 2013, about a quarter will be found in "nontraditional" consumer electronics devices - that is, in portable DVD players and media players, and in other fixed consumer electronics equipment such as PC TV tuners, rather than in standard TVs and set-top boxes.

"Nontraditional devices will form a fast-growing segment of the market for silicon receivers of digital terrestrial video," says principal analyst Steve Wilson of ABI Research. "The small footprint, low power, and low cost of silicon solutions will extend the opportunity for delivering digital broadcast television to consumers. The market will expand from traditional TV and STB applications to other fixed and portable consumer electronics devices."

Portable devices are taking over. Makes sense, why bother paying a subscrition or service for downloaded clips that are usually commercials pretending to be programming?? If you could recieve OTA on your phone or walkman, why would you need rogers?
We've spent years and dollars for higher resolution big screen tvs, built home theaters. Now they downrez/downsize it to fit on 2" screen. Its a shame really.

Well, despite the initial gotchas, I'm loving my non-traditional TiVo S3 for receiving and recording ATSC OTA programming. The only reason I need Rogers now is for the news programming (Fox News, MSNBC and BBC) programming that isn't broadcast.

I am curious in what way your TIVO S3 is "non-traditional?" Do you use it in your mini-van or RV so that the kids can watch OTA broadcasts on road trips or do you have it plugged into your cell phone or PDA somehow?

In the context of the future devices being discussed in the article, your TiVo S3 is a traditional STB.
