MSO Pre-installed CableCARDs


According to an artcile in the Seattle Times, cable companies will be able to install cableCARDs in their boxes at their offices. This would disadvantage third party devices which have to have their cards installed on site where the ability to diagnose problems is far more limited.

And cable companies can pre-install the security card before delivering boxes to new subscribers. That’s what Comcast, Motorola’s largest cable customer, plans to do.

However, getting working boxes more easily is a plus.
