    Glad to see this thread bumped up to it's own forum. My Tivo S3 just died - is there any word on when Comcast may be selling/providing the Premiere?

    Yes. They will be providing Premieres. They have not announced a date.

    The last time Comcast and Tivo made a deal (2005) it took three years from the announcement until we actually saw a product (in one test market that never expanded)

    I wouldn't wait around for it.

    Agreed. I waited 5 years for Comcast to support moving recordings to a DVD or memory card.

    Here's the press release.

    • Biz Journal says this is similar to Tivo's agreement with Cox Cable in Atlanta.
    • Comcast Tivo availability will be rolled out starting with San Francisco. No word on the time table for other markets.
    • The Comcast Tivo will allow you to access Comcast's on-demand services. The release and news articles don't say whether you will still be able to access some or all of the (competing) on-demand services Tivo already offers.
    • No word on Comcast pricing.
    • No word on how much Comcast-Tivo will be tweaked or modified compared to unlocked Tivo boxes and whether Comcast will be able to add the cable TV version of crapware.
