    Just saw this...Comcast has committed to rolling out On Demand to all Roamio and Premiere platforms. They say it'll happen by June 30, 2014.

    Only problem with that is you have to have Comcast, I wish Verizon would get it together with On Demand and TiVo.

    HUZZAH! Must have been my Advisors Panel survey that I completed yesterday. Never knew that I had such pull. :)

    U Da Man!!!

    Seriously, it's good news. Having just moved from DirecTV, that's one thing I do miss. But I knew going in it wouldn't be there so this is a pleasant surprise.

    Yeah, I sure wish Verizon and TiVo would strike a similar deal.

    Of course, June 30, 2014 on a Comcast calendar equates to something like December 16, 2016 in the real world calendar :).

    I hope it happens. Once that is done I just need a Plex in TiVo.

    not meaning to be a downer or rain on anyone's party, but i'm waiting to celebrate until after it works in our market. i was told two years ago it would be available "in three to six months" when i agreed to subscribe to tivo.

    announcing plans to implement vod in the entire comcast footprint and actually completing the implementation can be two different things, even with a date, but admittedly, it's the best hope we've had in years - fingers crossed! ;)

    I'm looking forward to on demand as a way to find new shows that I didn't know about. This would compliment a Netflix subscription, being able to watch newer series that haven't gone to Netflix yet.

    Just out of curiosity, where the heck will comcast on demand show up if it does appear? I was poking around it little used menus the other day, and found all kinds of stuff with basically no organization I could understand :).

    OK, it actually did show up just the other day here in Delray Beach. Haven't tried it (come to think of it, I never used the on demand when I had a comcast box either).

    To answer my own question, it appeared in "Find TV, Movies & Videos" over on the right side in the list.

    Boca Raton here and just noticed it last night. Had been traveling and not watching much TV so not sure when it actually was enabled. Works really well. I like On Demand to get HBO on demand. Would prefer if HBO released an HBO go app for Tivo though.

    It also shows up in your recorded shows list toward the bottom. This assumes you have it turned on in your channel settings under video providerrs.
