Comcast planning nationwide streaming TV service

Posted March 29, 2017

Comcast's service is different in that it is limited to its territories and to its own broadband subscribers.

The company is changing its video offerings to be more targeted as viewer habits evolve.

Red Bull denies trick suspension ban hurt it
Ricciardo was clearly frustrated when he got out of his stalled vehicle , before hitching a ride to the pits in a support truck. The Red Bull mechanics eventually managed to get their driver out on track, but he was already two laps down on the leaders.

The streaming-service onslaught continues as Comcast plans to capitalize on the trend with their offering, dubbed Xfinity Instant TV. This time around the service is called Xfinity Instant TV and will be rolling out to Comcast's markets nationwide this fall, according to Reuters. The new Xfinity Instant TV service will be priced at Dollars 15-40 per month, providing access to major broadcast networks as well as add-on options for sports channels like ESPN and Spanish language channels such as Telemundo and Univision. Customers from Washington D.C.to Philadelphia, and again in Boston and New England, will be able to access Xfinity Instant TV, but not New Yorkers. In addition, Comcast will sell bigger bundles for Xfinity Instant TV that include cable networks like ESPN priced at up to $40 per month, and is looking to offer optional genre-channels packs for news, sports or children's entertainment programming. Xfinity Instant TV would be available on both mobile and TV-connected devices. The hope is that subscribers will eventually upgrade to Comcast's X1 platform.

Sources tell Reuters that the service will be re-named "Xfinity Instant TV", will be priced between $15 and $40 per month, suggesting there will be more options than now available. However, Comcast says that the interpretation of the situation is wrong and its service in no way breaks any net neutrality laws.

Ford investing $1.2B in 3 Michigan plants, adding 130 jobs
Even though plant construction was called off, the company said, production of the Focuses would still move south of the border. An engine plant in Romeo, Michigan , where 500 people work, is in line for a $150 million investment under the same deal.

Comcast has a trial run underway for a service dubbed Stream in select cities in five states - Michigan, Indiana, New Hampshire, Illinois, and MA.

Considering Xfinity Instant TV will be a lot like Stream, it could give Comcast subscribers a huge perk by not counting toward their data caps. "Therefore, Stream TV data usage will not be counted towards your XFINITY Internet monthly data usage", asserts Comcast on its support page. Other giants that are into the online streaming services' business include DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) and AT&T Inc.
