This is a little out of left field, but it could also be interesting. Time Warner Cable is planning on releasing a set-top box to its customers with a built-in cable modem to allow them to watch “Internt TV” on their televisions.
The thing is, there’s no additional information on what this might be. Time Warner already has set-top cable boxes with full digital and HD capabilities, so what this additional device will give customers in addition is a mystery. And why they don’t just build the capability into future standard cable boxes is as well.
We’re guessing it’ll be some sort of DRM-friendly BitTorrent streaming box, but until we get more information, we can only guess.
