Set-top Box Energy Consumption

Recently a lot of waves were made when the L.A. Times published an article claiming that cable TV boxes have become the second-biggest energy using appliance in consumers' homes.

Unfortunately, there were several inaccuracies in the article, including statements made about the Industry Agreement for Ongoing Improvement to the Energy Efficiency of Set-Top Boxes (STBs).


The NCTA released a blog clearing up the inaccuracies in the L.A. Times article, which we encourage you to read here.
