Cable Companies Dive Into Video Gaming
Cable-TV settop boxes may soon become video-game devices, according to a report by Bloomberg News. Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon and AT&T are all reportedly in talks with data streaming specialists to bring streaming game technology to subscribers. Tests could begin as early as next year. Online game streaming has been around for a while but has failed to catch on, but cable may be able to provide the high-speed connections necessary for top video games through direct connections.
