Time Warner Cable and Samsung have announced that they have signed a letter of commitment for the continued development, purchase and deployment of Samsung tru2way enabled set-top boxes, including the first second-source DVR.
"We have been a leader in the roll-out of tru2way devices, and we are continuing to grow our relationship with Samsung, a CE company dedicated to the development of new equipment meeting the necessary standards and offering attractive feature sets," said Mike Hayashi, EVP of advanced engineering for TWC, in a prepared statement.
The Samsung set-tops with tru2way will include the SMT-H3090 and SMT-H3270 high definition (HD) DVRs.
To date TWC has deployed over 2 million tru2way set-top boxes, of which approximately 400,000 are Samsung boxes.
TWC is one of six MSOs that have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with consumer electronics manufacturers, including Samsung, to collaborate on the promotion of tru2way. (For more, click here).
