Service to arrive a year after announcement
Comcast is reportedly set to launch its Xfinity On Demand service for TiVo set-top boxes, nearly a year after plans of the offering first surfaced. Although the cable provider has yet to confirm a specific launch date, unnamed sources have told Zatz Not Funny the service will arrive sometime in April.
Users will be able to access a range of content, including pay-per-view movies and TV shows alongside free streaming programs. The service is said to be limited to TiVo Premier devices, purchased through retail outlets or acquired free from Comcast as the rollout adds new regions.
Xfinity On Demand for TiVo is expected to launch in San Francisco before heading to other areas.
