Inertia is hard.
It’s been almost 15 years since I got my first DVR. If you follow a lot of TV media coverage like I do, nobody could fault you for thinking that DVRs are in nearly 100% of homes. That’s almost certainly the case for TV media professionals.
But heading into the 2013-14 television season, nearly 14 years after the dawn of DVRs, Nielsen estimated that slightly less than 47% of homes* were equipped with DVRs.
