Despite several years of seeing a decline in sales due to the slump in economy, the home entertainment industry is gradually growing each year now and the number of people buying High Definition TVs, DVD players and sound systems is increasing by the day. A surge in competition among manufacturers combined with massive leaps in technology has resulted in dramatically lowering the prices of commodities that fall under the gamut of home entertainment. Not surprisingly, a majority of people are now ditching movie theaters in favor of their own homes when they want to watch a movie with the entire family.
Easier availability and of audio and video content via the internet has given rise to an increasing desire of integrating the home theater experience with the internet. People now prefer downloading the content they enjoy using the higher data transmission rate available and then enjoying it in the comfort of the homes. Content availability is vast and choices almost limitless. Computer games becoming closer to reality everyday with the advent of augmented technologies have further expanded the spectrum of home entertainment and now we can see people enjoying themselves in their living rooms instead of going to arcades for this purpose.
