I was wondering how many households still have the boxed tube TV in your country ? Here in the United State I read that it was 40 % of households still have the traditional boxed TV . They tend to last very long , mine finally broke after 20 years , I bought a flat screen TV but I hear they do not last as long as the analog tube TV 's
any opinions or stats in your country would be great and interesting to see

That's actually interesting. I was just back home and mentioned to my mom how my 89 year old grandma still has a box tv out on her porch that she never uses. It's been a long time since I've seen one. None of my friends have any.

Of all my friends that I know here in the US and Morocco , France , Puerto Rico and Spain . Only 2 still have them , they live in Puerto Rico and only one here in the US . The rest including myself have flat screen TV'S .
As far as family , we all have flat screen TV's with the exception of my Aunt , her TV is almost 30 years old and it still works

I live alone and have 4 TV's. 2 are CRTs but neither are hooked up at the moment. Last time I used one of the tubes was a couple years ago when I wanted to watch 2 NFL games at the same time.

I have a small one in the closet. I replaced with my flatscreen, which is also pretty small, I watch things and play games on my laptop mostly.

Been 11 years since I made the move to flatscreen TV's.. ( first Plasma and later LED TV's )

I don't know anyone in Denmark with CRT's - we only have digital TV, so I doubt one can even use one these days - even with a set top box one would still need a HDMI port.. :dunno:
