Comcast Tests IP Set Top at MIT – Comcast Prepares Network DVR Support

Last week Light Reading discovered some new info on Comcast’s latest IP-based set top. Code-named the X3, the new set top is an IP-based, HD client device that will support future Comcast pushes into the network DVR space (where most content is stored on Comcast servers remotely). The X3 isn’t expected to show up until late this year or early next, but the Wall Street Journal now reports that Comcast will soon start testing the device on the MIT campus. “We want to deliver video everywhere people want to watch it,” Comcast’s president of converged products Sam Schwartz tells the Journal in an interview. “We have to do a better job getting people to realize what they are paying us for.”
