CES: Comcast announces deals with Panasonic, Samsung on HDTV DVR's


As Engadget reported during the press conference, Panasonic and Comcast announced a partnership to distribute Panasonic set top boxes. No real information on how these will differ functionally from the Motorola & Scientific Atlanta boxes already in use in many Comcast areas, but the focus of the partnership appears to be using one remote to control a variety of devices, we'll see how that works out.

Also, Comcast has announced a deal with Samsung to distribute their set top boxes, these will apparently feature the ability to connect digital music players and digital camera to the boxes. It will be interesting to see how all this works, plus we should be seeing the first Comcast boxes with Tivo software on them in 2006.
