This is potentially a money saver. As some of you only watch VOD content and you may be able to get rid of a box and lower your monthly fee.
Log into Xbox Live:
Download to XBOX
Once you log in. Your account will be checked for requirements. If you don't meet them, you will be directed to a number to call.
If you do meet them, your modem will be reset so the proper provisioning can be added.
Then you should be good to go once you come back online.
EDIT: There is some confusion to how this works via the Xbox. The content you are watching through the Xbox does not travel on the internet per se, it does not count towards your "cap" that they RARELY enforce. The reason you need Comcast Internet is because you need a modem on the Comcast network. The content is delivered from the content server via a private network dedicated for this. You need video services because tv networks demand fees for allowing Comcast to provide you this content to you.

IF you have Comcast Internet but don't have Comcast TV Service but you know someone that does. Then you can use their primary login to gain access. This has been verified by 2 people. Great way to save $ and cancel your hulu/netflix/etc.
