Set-tops will become extinct, Time Warner Cable CEO Britt says – FierceCable

BOSTON–Cable set-tops will become extinct, and eventually be replaced by smart TVs and other IP-connected devices such as gaming consoles, Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) CEO Glenn Britt told attendees at the opening session here at The Cable Show.

Asked by CNN anchor and panel moderator Erin Burnett if set-tops would “go the way of the dodo bird, Britt said: “Yes–although people from [set-top vendors] Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Motorola [Mobility] (NYSE: MMI) probably don’t want to hear that.”
