Set-Top Box Market to Thrive, Research Shows


A new study shows that the set-top box (STB) market will grow steadily through the end of the decade, fueled by interactive features, PVR functionality and the possibility of retail STB channel. Hell - we have a TIVO, TIVO HD, Comcast HD-DVR, Xbox 360, Wii, and a PS3 in our house - all streaming set-top box wonders.

“There’s a war going on in the trences for TV customers,” says ABI Research vice president and research director Stand Schatt. “In an effort to lock in customers, cable operators are migrating to newer STBs that offer features such as personal video recorders [PVR] and high definition support. Meanwhile, telecom operators are leveraging IPTV technology to support interactive services.”
