Bright House Debuts ‘Voyager’ DVR Service

Ahead of the fall TV season, Bright House is broadening its DVR platform with a new whole-home system called “Voyager” that can record six shows at once.

The MSO said the offering combined the recording capabilities of its “Enhanced” DVR with a whole-home system that can connect to seven additional cable boxes in the house. Subs can manage the DVR remotely via the BHTV app for iOS and  Android devices.

Pricing on the Voyager whole-home option and its suppliers were not immediately available (it does look similar to this Samsung-made model). According to a web page dedicated to the product, its Enhanced DVR allows users to store up to 150 hours of HD video. Time Warner Cable markets a similar six-tuner/1 Terabyte “enhanced” DVR made by Arris (the DCX 3600)  that it’s rolling out as part of its TWC Maxx upgrades.

Bright House, which serves 2.5 million subs in parts of Florida, Alabama, Indiana, Michigan and  California, is in the process of being acquired by Charter Communications. Charter, which is also trying to buy Time Warner Cable, is expected to extend its Worldbox/Spectrum Guide product strategy to the acquired properties.
