One giant Indian MSO, Tamul Nadu Cable Comms (TCCL), says it needs the best part of 3 million new digital set-top boxes for its own analogue-to-digital conversion plan.
Currently TCCL has only some 200,000 set-top boxes deployed, and is looking to supply 500,000-750,000 new boxes by the end of April, and expects to install close to 3 million boxes in all in the Chennai and Tamil Nadu region by the end of May.
TCCL comprises around 600 smaller cable operators which combined account for around 90 percent of cable connections in the region.
TCCL is being supplied with Verimatrix conditional access for its digital transmissions.
