Comcast's stream video service is also the suck. Volume is inconsistent, navigation is a pain - you always have to navigate several slow-ass menus to do anything, audio and video are often worse than just watching the program or downloading it off the internet.
They are filled with the monopolistic crap.
The reason TiVo wants a sub isn't just the money: They have to pay to know when the shows are, and they have to know when the shows are to record them for you.
But it is filled with frustration. This is why cable costs $100 more than it did ten years ago and you're prolly getting less service.
