More Cable DVRs Coming Soon


New Orleans -- Cable subscribers can expect more digital-video-recording
options from providers this summer.

Insight Communications Co. Inc. chief operating officer Kim Kelly said during
the closing general session of the Cable & Telecommunications Association
for Marketing Digital Conference here Friday that the MSO expects to begin
offering DVR service by midsummer.

Earlier this past week, David Watson, Comcast Corp.'s chief marketing
officer, said the company is looking at a summer trial in the Washington, D.C.,
area, followed by a limited deployment in the fourth quarter.
