The article reports on the cable's new moniker for a technical standard for delivering advanced television (TV) services, called "tru2way". It is more consumer-friendly and descriptive than the former title, OpenCable Application Platform (OCAP). It stated that the name change appears to be part of the cable industry's campaign before the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to underscore its position that the CableLabs-developed standard is the only "true" way forward to interactive TV.
