This article presents an interview with Mike Hayashi, senior vice president of Time Warner Cable Inc., regarding the status of downloadable conditional access, OCAP and two-way Digital Cable Ready devices, and the hype and circumstance of IPTV. He said that OCAP TV will be connected to a cable system. It won't be Ethernet and no wire would be dangling in the back. It will be a TV set with a CableCARD running OCAP. The CableCARD costs remain very expensive. It's also operationally more complicated. Somebody has to plug something extra circuit that one finds in the CableCARD. Hence downloadable conditional access makes more sense than CableCARD.
