Not everyone has VoD on their Premiere, but even if they did there are other things my cable box does that the TiVo does not: Caller ID info, channel menus (shows multiple channels on the screen and selecting one of the channels plays the audio from it), jump from a channel to directly to it's corresponding VoD menu. Those are just a few. Basically any kind of cable interactive service only works on a cable provided box.
