TiVo + Comcast = Happy DotBlawger
TiVo and Comcast have agreed to install TiVo software on existing the Comcast DVR platform. Comcast recently agreed to a $1 billion deal with Motorola to buy STBs from the batwing company. I'm pretty excited by this because it gives Comcast (my cable company) the premier user interface for DVR services. I loved TiVo when I had only SDTV and moved away only because its HDTV solution is way expensive. The AP reports that "The new service will be marketed with the TiVo brand, and is expected to be available on Comcast's DVR products in a majority of Comcast markets in mid-to-late 2006." Good news.
