Comcast Corp, the largest U.S. cable TV operator, has agreed to use Microsoft Corp.'s software for set-top boxes for up to 5 million users, the companies said.

The deal is a rare win for the world's largest software maker, which has been trying for several years to spread the use of its software in the boxes used for delivering and viewing television content.

Comcast agreed to extend an existing licensing deal with Microsoft, although it did not say when it would roll out services to its base of more than 21 million subscribers.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Microsoft's software, called Microsoft TV Foundation Edition 1.7, allows users to record TV programs, bring up video content on demand, and also support high-definition television. (Reuters)
