Q&A: Comcast, Microsoft Execs Discuss First Commercial Deployment of Microsoft TV Foundation
Q&A: Comcast, Microsoft Execs Discuss First Commercial Deployment of Microsoft TV Foundation: "Comcast customers who sign up for the DVR service will receive a new digital cable set-top box. Customers who already lease a digital cable set-top box capable of delivering HDTV will pay an additional US$4.95 per month for the new DVR service, while all other customers will pay an additional $9.95 per month. Microsoft TV Foundation Edition will be made available to all Comcast Digital Cable customers. The software will be automatically downloaded to the set-top boxes over Comcast's digital network in phases over the next few months. Comcast's digital cable customers will wake up one morning to a new digital cable experience that improves their ability to find and manage the programming and on-demand content they're looking for."
