Comcast Officially Launches TiVo Service

Well, it looks like the USA Today article I spotted last night was just the first to cover the official launch. Today Comcast and TiVo put out a press release announcing the official launch of the TiVo software on Comcast in the Boston area.

TV fans in the Greater Boston area now have a new choice for recording their favorite programs with the launch of the Comcast Digital Video Recorder (DVR) with TiVo® service. The new service combines TiVo’s award-winning interface and exclusive features, including WishList® searches, TiVo Suggestions and Season Pass™ recordings, with Comcast’s comprehensive channel lineup and massive On Demand library – which includes the most high-definition viewing choices on the market – in one box.

It certainly is garnering a lot of press: USA Today, The Boston Globe, AdWeek, and countless blogs.

Including Doug Aamoth of CrunchGear who has had it installed and have posted a ‘first look video‘.
