    Not sure I see the benefit in this. If Netflix has such good content, I'd have to watch very few programs "on demand" and pay for them per viewing before it makes more sense to just pony up the $7.99 for Netflix itself, and get everything.

    Or am I missing something?

    On Demand does have some pay content but there is a lot that is free. Recent episodes of TV shows, for example. If you make an error setting up Tivo and miss a show, you should be able to watch it On Demand the next day.

    Love the TiVo version of Comcast VOD. Great addition!

    Understood, but the article I read regarding Netflix Comcast On Demand is that Comcast will charge for all the Netflix content. So if I'm going to pay $1.99 or $2.99 for every episode of House of Cards, it'd be cheaper just to subscribe to Netflix.

    You're referencing a very specific show with unusual circumstances. House of Cards is typically only available via a Netflix subscription. Comcast will now offer On Demand users the option of paying for individual episodes without a Netflix subscription. As you say, from a cost standpoint, paying for episodes via Comcast is stupid. Just get a Netflix sub and watch them.

    Comcast on Demand is a much greater collection of recent broadcast network shows along with other content like movies. You pay for some things like recent release movies, but watching the most recent episode of Big Bang Theory, etc. is free and can be useful, even with a Tivo.

    It just showed up this morning on my Roamio here in Chicago. But it doesn't show up on the Minis. Is this normal?

    Edit: Actually it's on one Mini, but not the other. Ever after a reboot it's not showing up. Guess I'll just wait and see if it shows eventually.

    Sweet home Chicago! Here in Northwest Indiana as well. Haven't tested it out yet. I can hardly wait to see if I get to go through some pain to get it working correctly.

    Edit: Went into the app on my Roamio, and it told me that "Cardio" was not available. Time to do some research, though I am guessing a reboot will be the first step.

    After a reboot, all seems to be working, though I have not watched a full show on it. Pretty excited to add that to the list of content sources.

    Well that sucks. I'll no longer feel special.

    Helen: Everyone's special, Dash.
    Dash: [muttering] Which is another way of saying no one is.

    Sigh.

    Still not available in my area, although it lists Georgia on the TiVo XOD page. Went through a bunch of ZIP codes in Georgia and all said unavailable. Wonder which cities in Georgia have it.

    Another confirmation of Xfinity VOD available in Atlanta. Works great, even premium content on both Roamio's. Premiere still doesn't have it yet though.

    On my menu in Nashville today also. However, not working well. Video either does not play or freezes after ~ 5 seconds.

    After restarting the app showed up in Cumming today (30041). Have only watched it for 5 minutes, but so far so good. Now if I could just figure out how to get my cable card firmware upgraded.

    Thanks to this thread I found it active on my tivo today. I'm in Tennessee. I have been waiting for this feature since it was first announced. And since I don't have an actual cable box means I finally have on demand. Woo hoo!!!
