ABSTRACT
The article reports that Cablevision Systems Corp. in the U.S. has introduced an approach called "remote storage digital video recorder (DVR)," a service that gives cable subscribers the ability to record and time-shift shows using existing digital set-top boxes. It is asserted that from the customers' point of view, the service would act as if the customers are using a DVR, while service providers look at the expensive cost of the DVRs.
