Cable DVRs More Popular than Satellite?

30 июля 2007
Lately the debate has escalated about which pay-TV service - cable or satellite - delivers more bang for the buck. Now, a new study suggests that when it comes to DVRs, at least in terms of popularity, cable has taken a slight advantage.

According to The Carmel Group's latest report, DVRs installed into cable-served TV households have recently surpassed the number of those in satellite served video homes. The study, titled "Digital Video Recorders 2007: Time in a Magical Box," said cable now claims the majority of DVR users at 56 percent, followed by satellite at 38 percent, the telcos at 1 percent, and standalone boxes - like TiVo - at 4 percent.

Carmel's study said the cable industry has generated more than $13 billion in cumulative DVR revenues since 1999 and nearly half of all U.S. television homes will be equipped with a DVR system by 2010. The report said by 2008, the top four DVR manufacturers will be Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, EchoStar and TiVo. The top operators installing DVRs are Comcast, DIRECTV, EchoStar and Time Warner, the firm said.
