Comcast’s TiVo customer page is live

Comcast's TiVo customer page

TiVoCommunity member mtchamp let me know that the Comcast TiVo page is now live. You can enter a zip code and see if the service is available in your area yet and, if not, sign up to receive an email when it is. Oddly the page says “Learn more at” – but that URL gets a “Directory Listing Denied” error. Hopefully they’ll get that fixed soon.

If you find the service is available in your area, please leave a comment with your zip code. And if you sign up for notification, it would be cool if you could leave a comment when you hear that it is available. It’d be cool to track the roll-out of this software.

    And STILL we have no notice around Philly. Just for the heck of it, I did a Tivo availability search on Comcast’s website, by zip codes around Boston and NY, and nothing comes up as available there either. I hate my current box! come on Comcrap!

    It probably won’t be in Philly for a while. Comcast, so far, has only announced plans for Boston and the surrounding New England area. And it isn’t even widely available here yet, last week on their quarterly call TiVo said it is only in a few non-employee homes at this time and it will be widely available ‘soon’. Comcast isn’t likely to make it available elsewhere until they’ve completed the roll-out in Boston. And then they plan to go area by area, so any given area may not see the software for a while, depending where it falls on the list.

    Fantastic. Meanwhile I’m stuck with Comcrap’s miserable Motorola box that does nothing bu freeze, pixelate, mute, and delay any buttons I press for 10+ seconds. Hey, at least Comcast is raising prices for 2008 on all of their services by an average of 7+%. Wow, I wish I got a 7+% raise each year!

    Well, you do have the option of getting a TiVo Series3 or TiVo HD and using CableCARD instead.
