This paper analyses the diffusion of HDTV in The Netherlands. The research provides an analysis of the supply side of the broadcast value chain as well as an analysis of consumer acceptance of HDTV in The Netherlands. The research is part of longitudinal research effort and uses both qualitative and quantitative measures. Using risks and uncertainties as a broad theoretical basis, we conclude that the consequence of the reluctant attitude on the supply side leads to a lack of knowledge on the demand side which is a necessary condition for the adoption of HDTV by consumers. This deadlock can be overcome when the supply side starts taking some calculated risks.
