Multimedia gateways open the way to today's cable news compendium. While one U.S.-based gateway maker starts to move some of its new product, an MSO on the other side of the pond insists that its video gateway initiative is not stuck in the mud.
We hope to have more soon on how BendBroadband's using the device, but, in the meantime, here's a gander at what the gateway looks like:
Liberty Global Inc. (Nasdaq: LBTY) insists that an earlier report that its "Horizon" home gateway is delayed is incorrect, and that the project remains on track. UPC Broadband 's Doron Hacmon reportedly told Cable Congress attendees in Lucerne, Switzerland, that there's been "no announcements" about the timing of the program, and that it's in discussions with a handful of other operators about sharing the gateway.

Don’t bank on Comcast continuing NBCUniversal LLC 's 40-year love affair with the Olympics, which saw it take a $220 million bath with the Winter Games in 2010. After all, as new NBCU CEO Steve Burke said Wednesday, "We’re here to make money." [Ed. note: Well, at least he offers an honest assessment.]( See Comcast Slows the Bleeding.)
