The Future’s So Bright, We Gotta Wear Set-Top Boxes…

From Wired.com:

Four hundred eighty channels and nothing to watch on TV? Liberty Global, one of the largest cable service providers in Europe, is adding a few more options for its customers.

The company will soon introduce a set-top box that will marry traditional cable content with apps, widgets and access to web-based video, Wired has learned.

“It’s a set-top box on steroids,” Balan Nair, chief technology officer for Liberty Global, told Wired.com. “The interface will be very intuitive and advanced and include features such as search and recommendation that will tie in a seamless way the experience of a using a DVR and a web search engine.”
