“Stream” is set to roll out in Boston this summer, Chicago and Seattle next — everywhere in 2016
Comcast is set to begin rolling out a live TV streaming option — simply called “Stream” — beginning in Boston this summer.
The $15-per-month option will follow suit soon in Chicago and Seattle, and the cable giant “plans to make it available everywhere in our footprint by early 2016,” the company said Monday in a blog post.
“The way we watch TV has become more personal than ever,” wrote Matt Strauss, executive vice president and general manager, Video Services for Comcast Cable in TV. “I like to watch live on the big screen in my living room. My kids, on the other hand, prefer to catch up with their favorite shows on their laptops, on demand.”
Via 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. It will also include thousands of on demand movies and shows and comes with access to TV Everywhere and a cloud DVR, per Comcast.
To order Stream, Xfinity Internet customers can sign-up online and download the Xfinity TV app.
