Vizio: We're Having A Monster Holiday Season

William Wang, founder and CEO of Vizio

Vizio sold 280,000 HDTVs to U.S. consumers on Black Friday, according to a press release from the company. That represents a 40% increase over last year’s numbers.

The company holds the top spot in U.S. television sales, claiming three times the Q3 shipping volume of Sony (SNE).

The press release doesn’t include a dollar sign, however, so it’s not clear if the uptick in volume is matched by improved revenue and profits, or is merely the product of aggressive discounting.
