Cablevision Wins NPVR Ruling

Lightreading published an article about Cablevision winning an appeals court ruling that supports its NPVR service. The ruling allows Cablevisiion to offer its NPVR service that was blocked by a law suit by major U.S. TV networks and film studios. Cablevision has not announced any plans to restart the service.

This ruling is subject to an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. NPVR is a key feature for the cable and Telco IPTV services in the U.S. NPVR is needed to bring the personalization that viewers get from the Internet to the TV. It will also have a profound effect on the networks that support IPTV services.
