TiVo to add Comcast video-on-demand support

TiVo to add Comcast video-on-demand support | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it
One of the major hang-ups for people switching from a cable provider's DVR to TiVo is that the retail TiVo doesn't offer the cable provider's video-on-demand (VOD) channels. So, while you can get plenty of options from TiVo's built-in video service providers--Netflix, Blockbuster, Amazon, and (soon) Hulu Plus--you can't order, say, a prize fight or even the bevy of "free" VOD options available on most cable systems, thanks to the technical restrictions of TiVo's CableCard technology. Well it looks like that sticking point may soon be unstuck as Comcast and TiVo have partnered up to offer access to cable TV, broadband content, and Comcast's Xfinity On Demand library through TiVo Premiere boxes. Here's how it works: get a TiVo Premiere at retail and Comcast will install it with its cable service at no additional charge for its customers.
