Aha. That does make a lot more sense. They are touting the advantages of 
this over what DBS companies have to do, but I have my doubts. This should 
increase even more the labor-intensive aspects of cable nets, compared with 
schemes in which subscribers might be able to buy their own approved PVRs.

This article explicitly states exactly the opposite of the headline in the 
previous article, right at the top:

companies like TiVo and Cisco Systems' Scientific-Atlanta ..."
