CableLabs Works On Spec for Receiving Off-Air Digital Broadcasts

CableLabs is launching an initiative to develop cable interface specifications for receipt of off-air digital broadcast signals. The interface specifications would enable devices to receive digital off-air television signals and would deliver these digital signals seamlessly through a cable set-top box.

CableLabs said this technology would allow consumers to receive broadcast television signals as an integrated viewing experience. The concept combines over-the-air digital television transmission with television programming carried by the cable provider.
