The article offers information about the cable operators in the United States wherein they are regarded as the top CableCard buyers according to the National Cable & Telecommunications Association. One reason is due to the integration ban of Federal Communications Commission(FCC) which forced cable operators to use CableCards in all their digital set-tops. On the other hand, FCC gave an exemption to the Cablevision Systems because it uses removable smart card.
