Is that a good-enough answer? Your area is not a priority compared to major metro areas.

According to this article on the LRC site late yesterday, the X1 platform is coming next to Washington, D.C., and will be rolled out to "every major city" served by Comcast in 2013:

However, what parts of DC? (The Washington, DC city and suburbs (Beltway Region) is a mishmash - different hardware and back-end setups abound. The city itself is ex-ATTBI; the suburbs are either former Jones Communications, Prime Communications, and two are even former Adelphia. Even the channel lineups differ from system to system. What I'd like to see is an intra-region rollout guide (which systems within the BR will get X1 when).

Good luck getting that. I think ONLY the very higher ups in the regions know which areas are getting it when and they aren't talking.
