In 2008 USA Cable Announced – The end of the cable set-top box? Now we have RDK!


The end of the cable set-top box? Yes, Comcast says

Back in January 2008 Comcast CEO Brian Roberts predicted that by the end of the year, and I share the quote.  “Virtually the entire cable industry will support Tru2way,” an “open cable” platform rendering the box moot.

Now I have understood that there is another Iinitiative that actually started in 2009, which is in full hype mode in 2013 called RDK which is designed to make STBs Faster to port and more flexible.  I guess USA Cable still needs STBs after all Brian?

Oh we are a fickle industry!
