Comcast wants you to pay and pay and pay

Comcast rolls out Tivo-like feature.
Comcast says its Digital Video Recorder service is available to customers throughout the Washington region. This is the first market in the country where Comcast is offering the service.

Comcast will charge an additional $9.95 per month for the service, and says there is no upfront equipment charge for the set top box.

Makes more sense to me to buy a TiVo with the $299 Product Lifetime subscription.

Comcast will be charging $119.40 per year for the TiVo-like device, but after 2.5 years you would have paid for the TiVo lifetime subscription.
