Network DVR is Now

Bob Scheffler, Director, Next-Generation Video Solutions at Motorola Mobility spoke on Network DVR back in Aug and suggested “The network DVR timeline for most US cable operators reaches out 18 to 24 months from now, which means by the end of 2012 we should see numerous trials and regional service launches.” To endorse Motorola’s position, Cablevision rolled out a new commercial called “Secret Passages”.  For $10.95 a month, consumers can record up to four shows simultaneously and set, record and watch shows from any TV in the house.

Jeff Baumgartner at Lightreading notes “While it’s still early days for DVR Plus, it’s clear that Cablevision is trying to take advantage of the operational efficiencies of a network DVR that traditional DVRs with built-in storage can’t deliver.” Consumers are demanding content beyond the home on any device and we expect to see other operators jumping on board soon. Take a look at a video from Bob here discussing the benefits on Network DVR.
