The 4 joined the 10 largest MSOs as members of the initiative, which is positioning cable as a high-tech industry with consumers through a humorous ad campaign (Cfax 08/25); in addition they can participate in future retail promotions that drive traffic to MSOs. The group joined Samsung in March and Panasonic in June for retail events promoting HD; more are planned, Beales says.
