Time Warner Cable Planning on Releasing a Network Enabled TV Set-Top Box for Internet TV Access

time warner logoAccording to Time Warner Cable’s Chief Executive, Glen Britt, speaking at the Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference in New York, the company is planning on releasing a network enabled TV set-top box, along with a specialized wireless cable modem, that will give people access to “Internet TV.” No specific details on how the set-top/modem combo will accomplish this, or who the partner providers may be, but subscribers can look forward to getting previously untapped content directly to their TV without the need of a PC and be able to easily network their other Internet enabled devices. Britt suggests that it will probably take two years to popularize the tech to his mainstream consumer base.
