The Japanese electronics giant will cease TV production in Japan, although it will continue to sell its Wooo televisions, made by outside contractors.
Hitachi outsourced the majority of its TV manufacturing to overseas firms two years ago. The company only had one plant left active in Japan, thought to produce only around 100,000 sets a month.
News of the complete closure of its TV production operation comes as Japan's industry suffers from increased price competition and a slump in export sales due to the strong yen.
TV manufacturers have struggled to cope with rampant competition and tiny margins, coupled with the tough task of persuading consumers to spend big on expensive new sets.
Japan has also fallen behind South Korea in terms of TV technology innovation and sales, particularly at Samsung Electronics.
Last week, Japanese firms Sony and Panasonic were downgraded by ratings agency Moody's, largely over losses in their TV divisions.
Samsung also bought out Sony's share in their liquid crystal display (LCD) joint venture, after agreeing to pay 1.08tn won (£600m) for the stake.
In August 2011, it was announced that Hitachi, Sony and Toshiba would merge their remaining LCD operations to create the world's biggest maker of small and medium-sized screens.
The operation, majority funded by the Japanese government, will control 20% of the global market, eclipsing previous sector rival Samsung.
