Microsoft, Comcast Team Up on Interactive Set-tops
Comcast and Microsoft are teaming up to deploy Microsoft TV Foundation Edition 1.7 software to Comcast subscribers.

The deployment of the software will provide dual-tuner digital DVR services to Comcast subscribers in Washington state, allowing them to pause and rewind live broadcasts and digitally record TV programs.

The software--which will be available on new digital set-top boxes with dual-tuners--includes an interactive program guide (IPG) and there are future plans to provide VOD services.

"As Comcast continues to roll out advanced video products--such as VOD, HDTV and DVRs--it's crucial to deliver a user experience that allows customers to easily navigate the many choices they have to find what they want, when they want it," said Len Rozek, senior vice president of the Comcast Washington market.
