Manufacturer-to-dealer sales of digital television (DTV) products reached new heights during the second quarter of 2003 with year-to-date unit sales totaling 1,438,713 and dollar revenues of more than $2.1 billion, according to figures released today by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). The 2003 second quarter sales surpassed the 2002 second quarter total by 69 percent in units and 43 percent in dollars. During June, factory-to-dealer sales of DTV products totaled 365,210 units with dollar revenues of some $524.1 million. These figures represent an increase of 110 percent and 81 percent, respectively, compared to June 2002. CEA defines DTV products as integrated sets and monitors displaying active vertical scanning lines of at least 480p and, in the case of integrated sets, receiving and decoding ATSC terrestrial digital broadcasts.

In a move designed to cut down on AOL Time Warner’s staggering debt, the company is reportedly selling its CD and DVD pressing plants to a Canadian Company for $1,000,000,000 in cash. While the move helped AOL’s stock today one has to wonder what it means to its long term plan as a record label and home video company. One of the biggest problems facing Sony Music and Universal Music Group is finding pressing plants that can make enough hybrid SACDs to keep up with the demand for the new format. Many new plants have been opened since the advent of SACD reportedly with support from Sony. AOL Time Warner’s move seems to be in the exact opposite direction.

EchoStar, DISH Network, and DIRECTV, just filed a lawsuit against the state of Ohio for passing a discriminatory 6 percent sales tax for satellite television service, which Ohio Governor Bob Taft signed into law earlier today. The sales tax was not imposed on local cable television services, even though satellite television companies compete with incumbent cable operators in the same market. The lawsuit was filed in the Court of Common Pleas, Franklin County, Ohio. The suit seeks a declaratory judgment holding that the satellite-only tax is unconstitutional and requests a permanent injunction against enforcement of the tax on approximately 700,000 satellite TV customers in Ohio.
