A NEW PLAYER IN SET-TOP BOXES

MICROSOFT ISN'T THE ONLY computer giant in cable set-top boxes. On Mar. 10, Network Computer, a joint venture of Oracle, Netscape, and others announced a deal to supply software and set-top boxes to Cable & Wireless for use in up to 7 million homes and businesses in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Hong Kong. Installation is expected to start this year in the U.K.--far ahead of TCI's rollout, according to NCI CEO David Roux. "This gives NCI credibility," says Cynthia Brumfield, an analyst with Paul Kagan Associates, a cable market research firm. EDITED BY KELLEY HOLLAND
