Comcast is catching up with the times and attempting to reach more TV viewers where they dwell — on mobile and away from their actual televisions.
In case you missed the news, in recent days Comcast announced a beta test of a new streaming cable service that “furthers our goal to provide TV choices for everyone. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever offered: no extra device or additional equipment required…or even a TV. And it’s called Stream.”
With Stream, Xfinity Internet customers can watch live TV from about a dozen networks – including all the major broadcast nets and HBO – on laptops, tablets and phones in their home.
Comcast says the offering also includes thousands of on demand movies and shows to watch home or away and even comes with access to TV Everywhere and a cloud DVR so you can record all your favorites and watch them later.
“Stream will be available to our Xfinity Internet customers for only $15 per month and will first launch in Boston at the end of the summer,” the company says.
