Surely you jest.  I have Time Warner cable now - they are overpriced
and the usability of the STB is marginal at best.  A competing system
would get my business in a minute.  They don't have any exclusive
content that the telcos can't get.   Their DVR software is inept at
best and the general UI sucks.

I think that you will see a pretty MSO like initial offering that will
migrate to a richer product over time as they get experience and
better understand the possibilities.
