Scientific-Atlanta reports that one of its largest customers has doubled its order for digital set-top TV boxes as US cable TV networks accelerate plans to carry digital TV and Internet based services.
Time Warner has doubled its order for set-top TV boxes to 1.1 million units, with an option to increase the total to 1.6 million units, to be delivered over the next few years. The order could be worth as much as $640m.
Scientific Atlanta said that it has begun shipping nine digital interactive systems to major cities throughout the United States and Canada. It has also set up a new business unit to help cable TV operators set up two-way digital networks based on its set-top TV products and support services.
