will Suddenlink show Video on Demand with a Tivo Roamio

Does anyone know, if I purchase a new Tivo Roamio at Best Buy and Suddenlink is my cable provider, will I be able to watch Video on Demand (Pay per View) ?

I would prefer not to purchase the Tivo from Suddenlink because the version they offer is last generation.

Thanks

No, so far only ComCast lets VOD work through Tivo. You would still need a cable box for the TV directly to receive VOD.

Aren't VOD and pay per view (PPV) two different things?

VOD is generally not available except for Comcast. But, my understanding of PPV (often an event like a boxing match) is that it is often available by calling your cableco and purchasing. Then, it comes on a dedicated channel. Never done it, but read about it here tons of times.
