Can Motorola's cloud-based nDVR kick-start TV Everywhere? | Video Breakthroughs |

Motorola Mobility says it will soon begin trials on a new cloud-based digital video recorder system that, at least on paper, has the potential to kick-start the pay TV industry’s ambitious yet cumbersome TV Everywhere initiative.


The company’s networked DVR could theoretically fulfill the wide-reaching promise of TV Everywhere, allowing subscribers to multichannel services the ability to access their TV programming on devices ranging from notebook computers to tablets to smart phones. (It also spares pay TV services the expense of leasing out millions of DVR set-top boxes.)
