Comcast HDTV DVR Now in SF Bay Area
Comcast's HDTV DVR is now available in Tivo's own backyard, the San Francisco Bay Area, according to the San Jose Merc. Comcast customers will be able to replace their exising set top box with the DVR for an additional $9.95 a month. According to the article, the Comcast unit, which can record 15 hours of HDTV (60 hours regular) is now available to 65% of it's 21 million subscribers.
This is the moment of truth for the wife and I. It comes down to this: Do we upgrade our television to HDTV and go with Comcast or stick with our old television and our beloved Tivo? Without a standalone, affordable, HDTV Tivo, those are really our only two options. Unfortunately, I don't think we're the only ones having to make that choice.
