Has anyone asked Comcrap about the Tivo software yet?
I live in the greater Boston area.
I have not asked yet. I am a Comcast customer.
I'm sure it's not available yet but I'll ask.
I'm in Malden,
but I don't care, my S3 makes me happy
The CSR of course really didn't know anything but seemed to be able to understand that it is coming. As far as I can tell it's not available yet.
She took my name and supposedly they will call me when available. HAHA. I'm not holding my breath on that one.
So still waiting anxiously.
Dont live in Boston, Dont have Comcast.....
I am Happy LOL.
I have a friend who is a retention specialist in the Malden call center. They were told early September.
Oh sure...lord your FIOS superiority over us "left behinders".
I live in Worcester, which is Charter.
But I hear things. Comcast is expanding the deployment in the Boston area in a 'friends and family' phase currently.
We only have Newwave here (Formally Charter). Thought Charter was bad.... Newwave is 10 times worse. You can ask any of their installers about the Cablecards and half do not even know what you are asking them...... We are about 10 Years behind here in Cable. LOL.
Well whether or not we get Tivo I did get a letter indicating that the DVR monthly service charge is being raised from 9.95 to 12.95 in September.
Could this be for our new Tivo service??
I doubt it, Comcast has indicated the TiVo service will be *optional*. A value-added service sold for an additional fee.
Okay...I feel better now...well...sort of.
Yes, the $3 increase in the DVR fee is for the regular DVR service, the first price increase for that service in a couple of years.
I live in Boston, and recently swiched from DTV and Comcast (for interent only) to RCN. Happy so far, though my tivo is not in the room with the HD set. Using the RCN DVR there, which at least is a little better than the DTV unit.
What plans does comcast have with tivo? News to me...
So Comcast has raised the HD DVR rate to $12.95 and we'll have to pay extra for the tivo download? Anyone know how much this *optional* value added service will cost? Maybe a Tivo HD makes more sense...
Also, I called Comcast a couple of times and the CSRs have no clue about the tivo update.
Comcast hasn't announced pricing, the general feeling is $5/month.
I'm in North Attleboro, MA - and Comcast is niether friend or family, I just give them my money. Will that mean that the upgrade would be available later to me?
Also, any idea how people will be notified when it is available: mail, DVR message, email, etc?
Presumably we'll be notified the same way we were about the DVR price hike---through US mail...
Perfect timing by Comcast... the price hike postcard arrived within a few days of me finding out about TiVoHD and that FiOS has approval for TV in my town.
I don't think I'll be sticking with Comcast for long - tax free weekend this weekend and TiVoHDs in stock at Circuit City...
FiOS has just been approved for Lexington? I thought I saw their promotional trucks there over a year ago...
