According to Japanese daily paper Nihon Keizai Shimbun, this autumn Matsushita will start shipping set-top boxes designed to run digital software to the US cable giant.

Matsushita hopes to sell about 300,000 of the new set-tops in North America this year. There are about 64m cable TV subscribers in the US.
