Comcast to Expand Streaming Service Amid Cord-Cutting Trend

Comcast to Launch Wireless Service This Year

According to Reuters, Comcast plans to relaunch its streaming service, now called Stream, under a new name and make it available everywhere Comcast is offered across the US.

The report suggests the service will include major broadcast networks - as well as add-on channel packages for sports channels like ESPN and Spanish language channels such as Telemundo and Univision.

Comcast, like many other cable TV operators, can carry networks such as CBS and AMC Networks within its coverage area, including its home base of Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington and Boston. These subscribers are either not interested in big cable packages, or can not afford the Comcast TV streaming plans. Unlike Dish's Sling TV or AT&T's DirecTV Now, Xfinity Instant TV will be for Comcast's internet customers only, according to Reuters. According to sources, the impending Xfinity Instant TV is said to be a revamped variant of Stream.

After the match, Blind accepted responsibility for the shock defeat, which was sure to lead to questions about his leadership. Netherlands captain Arjen Robben stuck by his coach after the match, saying the players were also responsible.

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.

Comcast finished 2016 up 161,000 pay-TV subscribers-its first video gains in a decade. It'd also be a huge violation of net neutrality - in concept, though not in law - since it favors one streaming service (its own) over everything else.

Nonetheless, the fact that it is not likely to count against its subscribers' internet data caps gives it an upper hand against its competitors. The company, which launched a TV streaming service in 2015, is reportedly looking to extend video streaming options for its broadband subscribers who are not keen on shelling out too much money.

The incident came less than 20 hours after four bombers struck Maiduguri , killing two and injuring 16. He said, "These attacks on soft targets are indicative of a drowned Boko Haram group".

The company has always been accused of violating net neutrality laws by favoring its own service. However, given that a Comcast internet subscription is essential for the service, it is certainly debatable.

Stream is now only available in certain cities within five states - Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, and New Hampshire - so a nationwide launch would be a major expansion.
