    I didn't get any notification, but I just noticed that Xfinity On Demand is on my Tivo, and it works great too.

    Just noticed Philadelphia. I live in Lancaster, PA, about 60 miles West of Philly and am very interested if others in this area have On Demand working.

    I'm in Philadelphia (center city). I've forced a couple connections and reboots, and it's not appearing for me yet. I'm guessing it might take a day or 2 to get it up and running for everyone.

    Did you check your ZIP code on the web page to see if Lancaster is included in the Philadelphia rollout?

    I checked my zip code and it said it wasn't available here. I also did a force connection and restart and didn't see it. I'll wait a few days and try again. Hopefully it will get here soon. The web page just said Philadelphia and not "Eastern Pennsylvania" or something like that so it may still take a while.

    The TiVo site says Xfinity OnDemand in now in my zip, but I'm not seeing it yet.

    My zip code now finally shows as available. I've had it for about two weeks. Better late than never I guess. :)

    Someone at my office is in the same situation as you. His zip code says he has it, but last he checked he didn't.

    Are you using Motorola or Cisco/SA cards? I think they are implementing Motorola first.

    Also I had to actually go into the Video Providers menu in the Settings -> Channels menus before Xfinity showed up for me (though maybe it would have shown up eventually on it's own).

    I have a Moto card. I also forced a couple of connections, then a reboot, just to see if Xfinity would show up in the list of providers. So far, no dice.

    I am in Hillsborough, NJ too. I see Xfinity VOD listed too but when I try and play, video freezes after couple seconds like some others have mentioned. Does it work fine for you? I called Comcast and they sent a "signal" but it did not fix both my Tivos.

    My first clue was that a "Purchase Controls" menu item showed up under settings. A day later VOD showed up. I think that is system dependent though as in some areas the purchase control option is in the VOD menus itself (press info for options).

    Is anybody not resolving their VOD issues by following the instructions from the Tivo.com website on the xfinity pages?

    I checked a bunch of zip codes West of Philly and it looks like it goes as far West as Gap which is still about 10 miles East of me. Hopefully the area will expand soon.

    Just forced a connection in the upper Bucks County area (North of Philadelphia) and got it!

    (Note that I didn't see the option until after a reboot, plus adding a PIN in the Purchase Control section. Not sure if it was just a timing issue, or if the system was really waiting for me to enter a PIN?)

    Possibly dumb question. Is this different from/in addition to setting up/registering your cable cards?

    My cable cards are currently NOT set up, so I'm getting pretty much the expanded basic channels. (Long story, some of them were previously in my now dead S3, and I switched around for various reasons.. Now I have one M in TivoHD and one in new Premiere 4..) I obviously am going to get them set up to the right devices at some point like they were in the past, but I'm wondering if getting VOD working will be BEYOND the regular setup.

    (I also have an old drive I will plug in to my TivoHD to get shows off of, which will make the cablecard not linked again, so that's part of why I haven't dealt with it.)

    Since I now have 6 tuners, it's *usually* enough (the only reason it's sometimes not enough is padding needs, since those use two tuners, even if they're the same channel).. so I probably don't NEED On Demand, but I might use it ONCE in a while.

    It probably helps that Comcast HQ is in Philadelphia. :p

    I just checked and I now have it - Newark, DE 19702. I had signed up to be notified when it was available but never got an email. I just went to the Search area and found it. It doesn't say Xfinity On Demand - just Xfinity. But it works fine!
