Published November 21, 1995
A Burbank, CA, company announced plans yesterday to "become the first provider of a system that will allow TV viewers to get digital satellite TV without the dish." A TV-top box will allow consumers of TVN Entertainment's new system "to receive digitally compressed programming through existing cable wires," according to USA TODAY. TVN will begin by providing 40 channels of movies and PPV in addition to the usual cable channels. Marketing plans and cost will be unveiled next week (Bruce Haring, USA TODAY, 11/21).
