Cablevision Systems, the 5th largest cable provider in the US, has endured a long legal battle against leading American TV programmers and providers, but now that its legal woes have finally ended, the company has the Supreme Court’s sanction to launch its network DVR system.
A person using the network DVR would be able to record programs without a dedicated, physical DVR box as the programs would be stored on a server maintained by Cablevision. Cablevision had first announced the cloud-enabled technology in 2006, however, it was soon beset and dragged to court by TV programmers and providers. Cablevision is going to roll out a limited preview of the service this summer.
