Only 443,000 Standalone CableCards Have Been Used In Retail Devices
EngadgetHD came across this article covering Cable Card rollouts, which is pretty insulting given how cable card was supposed to balance everything out for the set top market hustle which MSO’s have. But out of 16.7 MILLION set top boxes, only 443,000 non-MSO-STB cards have been ordered. There’s so many factors I’m sure which have contributed to this number, with the MSO’s terrible support of cards being at the top of my list. Things have gotten better, so c’mon folks, quit giving even more money to your cable provider!
