Bright House looks to Start Over

What: Video-on-demand feature Start Over

Why you should care: The feature that allows cable TV VOD customers to restart a TV program that has already started has previously been understood to be something of a pain for cable TV system planners having to engineer their systems to support a greater number of overall video streams. But, one cable TV company and vendor are now pursuing a Start Over application whose streams are partitioned from other VOD streams.

Who's using it: Time Warner Cable was the first to roll out the capability commercially, and others have tested it, but now, Bright House Networks is working with vendor Concurrent Computer Corp. on a deployment in Tampa Bay, Fla., that will support 23,000 dedicated Start Over streams.
