    I have Comcast and live near Chicago, and would like to have this as an option. I have no expectations to get it (nor do I think I would use it often- I already record what I want to watch).

    With the exception of local programming, I have found that EVERYTHING offered by Comcast VOD can pretty much be obtained elsewhere and from other sources anyway.At least a good 95% of it :D I personally don't "obtain" it these ways as I don't have time to watch it anyway (another reason I ultimately don't care if my TiVo gets Comcast VOD), but I know it can be done. Maybe this is why they really haven't cared too much about it.

    I don't use it on my TiVo's, actually take that back...I did use it once to watch Moneyball again. Otherwise, I'm on Amazon or Netflix...or stuff that I've recorded already!

    Six more months and no more markets. Has this roll out been shut down?

    Apparently they never promised it to all markets. I do believe it has hit either the end of near the end of all markets that will receive it. Supposedly their deal with Tivo only covered this much.

    That sux. I was reading up on the Roamio after making my purchase and saw people talk about having VOD. I waited 2 days after activating my Roamio then started looking online only to find out this is only available in a few markets. Oh well...maybe Google will get a Chromecast to work with VOD.

    They're waiting to see what the customer uptake is like before rolling it out to more markets. Yet another side effect of Comcast having hundreds of different feudal domains, each with different equipment, slightly different channel line-ups, etc.

    Yes. I read somewhere (sorry, no link) that Comcast has decided to stop rolling out TiVo/VOD. Not sure what the reason was, but if you don't have it by now, you won't be getting it.

    And that includes me.:(

    Same here, in the Philly burbs N/W and I have yet to use it. With Netflix, etc. there just is no reason for us to use it, now anyway.
