SBC and Scientific Atlanta

Scientific-Atlanta recently announced it has signed an agreement with SBC Communications, Inc. to design, build and activate the IP video super hub offices (SHO), IP video hub offices (VHO) and IP video operations center (VOC) for its Project Lightspeed network. The network will be able to deliver video, voice and data services to 18 million households in the SBC 13-state service area.

It is obviously easier for cable companies to deliver voice than it is for ILECS to deliver TV but using IPTV, it is possible to do many things that can’t be done today such as easily piping TV to all computers in a house. How about being able to watch your favorite programs from any computer, just like using s soft client for VoIP? Just as IP has been a tremendous enabler for telephony, it will do the same for TV. There will be lots of interesting features of IPTV that will likely put pressure on cable companies to rethink the way they transmit.
