Its easier for a new offering like ATT's to come out of the box swinging. Comcast has tons of old equipment out there and maybe they don't think wireless boxes are the way to go. The can barely get the ones that have cables to work. From what I have seen in the comcast blogs and on other sites the new boxes and guides are not wireless.

You can hide your cable box.
The DCX series and the RNG110 have a IR receiver port that you can add a IR receiver, similar to these
http://www.irblaster.info/motorola_rx.html and also available on Ebay, or use the one that comes in the DTA digital adapter kit.
The rest of the boxes you can add a 3rd party IR extender to relay the IR signals. There are many brands and types, just search for IR extenders.

I agree with the last post! How can Comcast be the best cable provider in the country and not have this technology available first? Someone did fall asleep at the wheel. I can care less about excessive cable box inventory, I'm sure there is some smart person that works at Comcast thats job is to manage a product line and inventory. Every month I send Comcast a payment, in that payment, is the fee for my modem, cable box and DVR. What would be the difference here? My point to Comcast execs, if they care, is to provide the technolgy, manage your products better, but offer your customers more options. This is what happens when you get too big to care. Note: I have an iphone and every time I call ATT regarding my phone, they’re pushing the cable service too. At first I thought, how is ATT going to compete with Comcast for my business, they're (Comcast) the best, right? Wrong! I need to start rethinking my cable service now. I live in a condo and my office doesn't have a cable line in it. However, I've been looking for and alternative to costly cable installation run and this wireless cable receiver is the solution. Well, it looks like ATT may be getting a call at the first of the year. I hate to give any one carrier all my business, but convenience may trump principle in this case... Also, they're also offering well priced bundles for channels as well. Comcast - you guys need to step your game up! Please!

Don't say they "will not" do something unless you're a representative and can honestly say that, anything can happen, and ruling it out. If anything, wireless cable boxes wouldn't pick up the content they wish not to share... BOOM, it's possible again.
