A new type of set-top box is appearing in the homes of some pay-TV subscribers. This box, called a home media gateway, supports advanced features such as multi-room personal video recording, streaming IP video, and multi-screen video service (commonly called TV Everywhere).
Some home media gateway products are already well-known. The Hopper by DISH, Comcast's X1, and Liberty Global's Horizon have all received widespread attention. However, other products, such the Freebox Revolution and the ARRIS Moxi Gateway, are also widely being deployed.
This report covers the market for home media gateway set-top box products, with special emphasis on product manufacturers, pay-TV service provider deployments, and market development trends. It specifically focuses on deployments of first-generation home media gateway products and discusses expected product deployments over the next year. It also provides global unit shipment and product revenues forecasts for home media gateway products.

The development of the home media gateway has been underway for a number of years. In fact, the idea that a "media gateway" set-top box-based product might eventually become the centerpiece in the pay-TV household has been floating around the industry for the past decade. However, over the past two years media gateway products, such as Comcast's X1, The Hopper for DISH, and Liberty Global's Horizon platform, have begun to be deployed by pay-TV service providers in North America and Western Europe.
