Comcast starts rollout of video-on-demand access to TiVo users

Starting in the San Francisco Bay Area, TiVo Premiere users with Comcast can easily view Xfinity TV On Demand content.

If the inability to access video-on-demand (VOD) channels has kept you away from TiVo (and not its service fee), you may soon have to find another excuse. At least if you're a Comcast Xfinity subscriber.

An automatic software update will be pushed to TiVo Premiere users in the Bay Area starting today and over the coming weeks adding access to the Xfinity On Demand library. Additional markets across the country will get access in the coming months.

You can sign up for notifications on the rollout on TiVo's site.
