Comcast Cable and Microsoft have announced an agreement that extends their existing relationship and gives Comcast the ability to make Microsoft TV Foundation Edition 1.7 software available to up to 5 million customers. The agreement has an option that allows Comcast to expand the roll-out at a later date.
Microsoft's Foundation Edition is designed to work across a range of set-top boxes (STBs), from legacy models currently in service to advanced STBs that enable new services, including dual-tuner DVR, VOD, HDTV, games and more. The software also supports dual-tuner DVRs and HDTV capabilities in Motorola's new DCT 6412 STB.
