ABSTRACT
The article comments on the implications of the deadline that would prohibit cable television operators from deploying set-top boxes with security by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC issued navigational device rules concerning the point of deployment modules in 1998. The device offers video on demand and electronic program guides. The deadline will likely affect development on competitive initiatives.
