Directv and Dish are starting to send out 1080P 24 movies via PPV too which is kind of ground breaking. Directv is still beta testing theirs.
Last time I looked, comparing lamp vs LED sets.

At that time, they were damn expensive and heavily back ordered.
Part of the reason I wrote off lamp based DLP. (that and the color wheel)
Hopefully that are much cheaper now. (I have no desire/reason to check)

Next up and comer: laser based rear projection.

My preference still would have been SED, but that got caught up in the lawyers over patents and contract disputes.
