The rollout is taking place in two phases, with certain set-top boxes receiving the code in each phase. Phase A will run from March through to May and will include set-top boxes which we know from experience are less likely to fail on taking the new code. Phase B will run from May to June and will include some of our older set-top boxes that may potentially be more likely to fail. This approach will help us to more effectively manage both the download and any customer calls.
