The potential demand for STBs comes from 90 million homes, which are to be digitized till December 2014. As competition intensifies with the growth of DTH in key markets, cable operators in India and other parts of the Asia-Pacific region are responding with the introduction of STBs with digital output, interactive services, and next-generation ramp-up like digital video recorders (DVRs), video-on-demand (VoD), and pay per view (PPV) services..
