Motorola + Comcast + TiVo


Details are sparse, but Comcast and TiVo have confirmed that they have begun rolling out Motorola set-tops with TiVo software in a small New England deployment. Despite the low-key launch, coverage has already exploded on the topic with 128 articles (many wire-service duplicates) currently showing up in a Google News search.

There’s not much I can say here that I haven’t already said. (See: Running TiVo on a Motorola Set-Top and Tivo’s Survival.) But I will reiterate two points:

  • Motorola’s set-top hardware powers solutions for cable operators (using any software they want including TiVo), Verizon’s FiOS TV and AT&T’s U-verse service.
  • Millions of consumers use Motorola HD DVRs. Software choice may bring in even more.

No doubt we’ll hear more on the TiVo software roll-out as subscribers start to talk to bloggers. In the meantime, it’s fun to read the online discussion and speculation.
