ABSTRACT
This article discusses issues regarding the OpenCable Applications Platform (OCAP) launch and the July 1, 2007, deadline that bans operators from deploying digital set-top boxes with embedded security. The deployment of network support for a handful of systems to run OCAP in October 2006, is self-imposed by cable's larger operators. While the deployment of boxes with a CableCARD slot in July 2007 is imposed by the Federal Communications Commission.
