ABSTRACT
The article focuses on new technologies that create new lingo within the cable television industry in the U.S. The OpenCable Applications Platform (OCAP), one of the awkward of the spoken cable acronyms, is a way for a software developer to make a product that works on cable. Another one is Enhanced Television (ETV) which targets older and underpowered set-tops.
