Comcast subscribers who opt to use a TiVo Premiere will now be able to access Comcast VOD through their TiVo DVRs.

This appears to be the first time Comcast has allowed access to its on-demand service through any retail box.

The capability starts in Comcast's Bay Area systems. The two plan to make it available in markets, TiVo said.

The arrangement works for subscribers who self-install, but Comcast has further agreed to install TiVo's Premiere set-top boxes with its cable service at no additional charge for its customers who opt to go that way.

"We're pleased to combine Comcast's industry leading On Demand library with the innovative TiVo experience and provide our customers even more choice and convenience," said Marcien Jenckes, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Video Services for Comcast. "Working with TiVo to allow customers to access our Xfinity TV On Demand service complements our commitment to bring any content to any device, at any time."
