Amid rising competition from Internet TV packages, Comcast is getting close to offering its own online video offering, and it sounds like it might be even more appealing than what’s already available.
Expected to be called Xfinity Instant TV, the package will include local broadcast channels, an unnamed premium channel, and DVR capabilities for $15 per month for customers of Comcast’s home Internet service, Matt Strauss, the head of the company’s cable service, said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. Additional packages of cable TV channels will be available for additional charge, he said.
“If you want to add on top of that, skinny packages like a sports and news pack or kids and family pack or a TV and entertainment pack, you’ll have the ability to do that,” Strauss explained to the newspaper.
