Motorola Broadband Business

There's a good primer in the Chicago Tribune on Motorola's Broadband Business which includes set-top boxes, cable modems, and DVR technologies. Motorola and Scientific Atlanta are the two behemoths in the set-top box industry.

One interesting tidbit was phone giant Verizon's investment in this market:

On the other hand, set-top box makers can see opportunity in another market shift--the arrival of phone companies in the TV business.

Phone giant Verizon recently chose Motorola to help build its TV system and supply set-top boxes to its customers.

Verizon plans to spend $2.5 billion by 2006 to run fiber-optic lines directly to customers homes, allowing for television service.

The whole article is a good read.
