Comcast’s Brian Roberts offered a bit more insight on the MSO’s deal with TiVo during an interview with Georgia Public TV Fri night. "TiVo is like a religion to some people," he said. "We have a digital video recorder that we can’t keep in stock. It allows you to pause and rewind live television. It allows you to record shows real easily-but it’s not TiVo. So we made a deal with TiVo that’s going to allow us to offer it as a premium product for a couple of extra dollars a month. We have about a year’s worth of work before we hit the ground and have it integrated."
