Comcast planning nationwide streaming TV service

March 28, 2017

US broadcasting and cable giant Comcast is planning to rebrand and expand a streaming video option for broadband subscribers who do not wish to pay for a traditional cable package, according to a Reuters report.

The service, tentatively branded Xfinity Instant TV, will be priced between $15 (€13.80) and $40 a month depending on the package, and will include major US broadcast networks as well as add-on options for sports channels like ESPN and Spanish language channels such as Telemundo and Univision.

Xfinity Instant TV is expected to launch in autumn of this year to more than 50 million homes within Comcast’s footprint, which includes cities such as Washington, D.C. and Chicago.

Xfinity Instant TV will target high-speed Internet subscribers who cannot afford or do not want to pay for bigger cable bundles, Reuters said.
