At least one lawmaker likes Comcast and TiVo ’s agreement to work on a 2-way, non-CableCARD solution that will let retail devices access the full Comcast lineup of linear and VOD programming. “For millions of consumers, renting a cable box from their cable provider isn’t a choice. It’s a pre-requisite for cable programming,” Rep Anna Eshoo (D-CA) said. With this announcement, “the companies are opening the door to a more innovative, consumer-friendly set-top box marketplace, one in which consumers can decide the best device for their needs and where innovators can aspire to deliver even more cutting-edge technology.” The companies revealed the work in an FCC filing this week, with Comcast saying it will make such a solution available to other cable operators on commercially reasonable terms.
