Comcast begins rolling out TiVo software in New England

TiVo software on Comcast boxesTiVo and Comcast may have missed their August target date for rolling out optional TiVo software to Comcast cable boxes. But hey, better late than never right?

This week Comcast customers in New England who signed up for the service started receiving software updates on their set-top-boxes. This is the first time any cable company has delivered TiVo software without offering a standalone TiVo box. Once upon a time TiVo and satellite provider DirecTV had a partnership to deliver co-branded set-top-boxes, but that relationship has since gone the way of the dodo.

There's no word on when Comcast/TiVo will begin offering the service outside of New England, but given how long it took for anyone besides a TiVo or Comcast employee to get the service in the first place, I wouldn't hold my breath.
