No One Cares About HD?

Despite Scoble’s love of HD, I see the reality as being a bit closer to this survey that Gizmodo reports on.

While most people I know really like it when they see HD on their new HDTV set, it’s just too complicated to figure out how to get HD programming, and often they don’t even realize they are watching standard def!

I don’t know how many people I’ve seen buying HD sets without knowing what they were doing.  A plasma or LCD set is just cool to have.  A status symbol. 

I recently found out that my wife’s boss bought some plasma screen TV awhile back because they’re cool basically.  He’s been watching standard def on it because he had no idea that he had to subscribe to HD programming from his satellite provider.

Currently, HD is too complicated for most people.
