According to Comcast, "on-demand" via Tivo cannot be updated or upgraded. How can a company tell an outright lie as an absolute truth? Oh, yes, that's right this is Comcast. How stupid of me. Any computer programmer, user or owner of any gadget on the planet knows anything with an OS, firmware or user applications can be upgraded at any time. The truth is that Comcast, like others have said, wants us to use their boxes, pay their fees and keep track of every program we watch to sell the demographic or even specific user data to third parties. Big Brother is watching and THIS IS 1984. Is any part of this new policy a surprise to Comcast customers? Well, there is for me; their statement didn't mention that this new policy provides a better user experience which they throw out every time they downgrade service. Among other actions by this anti-customer oriented company was to reduce "cable channel" programming to 720p when the rest of the universe has 1080p, many have 4k and our friends in Asia are boasting 8k. Comcast has us living in the dark ages of technology and I wish there was a competing cable company in our area because I would dump them in a millisecond. Our local congressman is in their pocket and the FCC chairman is their puppet. We remain at their mercy.
