But before we get to the exclusive pictures, I’d like to pose a series of questions… How much will the TiVo on Comcast service cost? I’ve heard monthly fees could be anything from $2.95 – $6.95 (additional) or Comcast might even charge a one time DVR “upgrade” fee. Will New England customers receive special pricing (or free service) while Comcast ramps up and builds awareness? Speaking of New England, what’s the time frame for deployment in that region (I’m hearing next month)… and the regions beyond? What hardware will TiVo run on? Two Motorola models were mentioned at CES, but that was prior to the release of Moto’s CableCARD boxes. But the question I’d really like to get answered: Is Firewire video extraction available? (Since, I assume, TiVoToGo will never be available.)
And now, I present the first photos of a deployed Comcast TiVo running on Motorola hardware:
Comcast TiVo Central with PIP and On Demand.
Comcast TiVo Season Pass Manager. Again notice the PIP.
Comcast TiVo Season Pass Options. Notice the HD flag!
Grid guide looks like the Comcast and TiVo UIs have been fused together.
The Comcast TiVo remote is a definite upgrade over Comcast’s model.
