Another Study Sees Soaring Set-Top Sales


Strategy Analytics Inc. Tuesday became the latest research firm to tout upcoming digital-TV set-top sales.

The company said sales of digital set-tops will jump 39% to a record 50.3 million units in 2004, following a 28% hike to 36 million boxes in 2003.

Strategy Analytics added that strong demand for digital-satellite systems in the United States and Europe, as well as the revival of the digital-terrestrial market in Europe, were responsible for the recovery during 2003.
