Motorola announced that it has shipped its millionth Internet-protocol-TV set-top -- although the technology is still a small part of its business, representing less than 2% of digital-cable set-tops the company has sold.
In February 2006, Motorola bought Kreatel Communications, a Swedish developer of IP-based digital set-tops primarily sold to European telecommunications operators and Internet-service providers. Kreatel shipped its first IP set-top in May 2001.
Last October, Motorola said it had shipped 50 million set-tops to date, including those dating back to the days of General Instrument, which Motorola acquired in 2000.
