Comcast has announced plans to install up to 100 million more HDMI cables on the company’s existing cables.
The cable company is expected to start installing the devices by the end of the year, with a total of 100 million cable-like connectors available by the start of 2019.
“We have been working hard to develop the best, most innovative, and cost-effective cable solutions in the world,” Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts said in a statement.
“As we continue to innovate, we will deliver our customers the best and most secure cable solutions, and that is why we are pleased to announce our next phase of investments in 2018.”
Roberts said the next phase will include the installation of cable-based “spectrum” and “cable management” products.
Spectrum cable management products are designed to allow users to view and control all cable devices on their homes via the company network.
The company will start testing the devices on the Comcast’s existing network of fiber-optic cable systems in early 2018.
Roberts said Comcast is also planning to roll out new “cadillac” products in 2018 to add new capabilities to its existing products.
