Since its inception, the cable industry is one of innovators. The cable industry has grown from providing a handful of broadcast stations to rural communities to a multi-media platform that meets the diverse communications, information and entertainment needs of consumers and businesses. In addition to linear multichannel video programming, cable operators offer a variety of complementary video services, including video on demand, digital video recording and other time- and place-shifting services. Recognizing consumers' desire to have a single provider, the cable industry introduced the concept of triple play - video, Internet, and telephony. Responding to a more mobile society, cable has begun to offer its services on multiple platforms, that include wireless communications and Internet protocol.
