Time Warner Cable Inc plans to offer subscribers an easier way to bring Internet video to their television screens as part of an overall home networking system, Chief Executive Glenn Britt said on Friday.
“Right now it’s pretty hard to get Internet stuff on your TV,” Britt said at the Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference in New York.
“We’re actually going to have equipment we make available to subscribers,” he said. “It’s actually going to be a new wireless cable modem that will allow you to network everything in your house.”
Britt gave few specific details on how the service would work or when it would be available.
“Within a relatively short time … it’s going to be very easy to get Internet TV on your big screen TV,” he said, estimating it would take between one to two years to popularize such technology already sold by the likes of Apple Inc.
