Online TV streaming is how everyone wants to consume content right now and multiple players are trying to take advantage it. Comcast actually launched a TV streaming service in 2015 called Stream that’s only available in a few cities. However, according to a new report, the company is now planning on relaunching and rebranding Stream and offering it everywhere Comcast offers its internet service. Which makes more sense obviously.
Comcast will call its new TV streaming service Xfinity Instant TV.
Prices may start at around $15 per month for major broadcast networks like NBC and ABC and go up to $40 per month for additional premium networks.
Comcast’s Stream service is only available in a few markets like Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, and New Hampshire, but a nationwide launch will let everyone enjoy it. This is likely to happen in the third quarter of this year.
One thing that’s going to set it apart from competitors like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue is that Xfinity Instant TV will only be offered to those who are already paying for the company’s internet service. We don’t know yet if streaming data generated by Xfinity Instant TV will count against the customer’s data cap for the month yet. No comment from Comcast yet.
