Top 3 Goals to Reinvent the IP-based Set-top Box
As we get closer to the end of 2012, I’m now wondering when there will be some significant change to the user experience. I can think of three key goals that need to be on a product developer timeline.
When will we see the end of STB remote controls with dozens of tiny buttons, and channel-centric program guides that aren’t user configurable? When will we witness a hybrid set-top box that truly harnesses the full potential of an IP-based pay-TV offering? When will user experience design creativity be applied to this product category?
Those are what I believe to be the primary customer-centric expectations for meaningful progress.
