UPDATE: Comcast Launches New Streaming Video Service: Xfinity Streampix
Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) today announced the launch of Xfinity Streampix, a new subscription video service that enables Xfinity video customers to instantly view movies and TV shows in and out of the home, including numerous past seasons of current shows and full series, to multiple screens and devices including TVs (as a subscription On Demand folder), online platforms and mobile devices.
This new service complements the 75,000 TV shows and movies currently available on Xfinity On Demand, XfinityTV.com and through the Xfinity TV app. To launch Streampix, Comcast has entered into licensing agreements with leading movie studios and programming providers including Disney-ABC Television Group*, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Cookie Jar Entertainment and built a line-up of top-rated content, which is available starting this week.
In the coming year, the Streampix service will be available on additional devices such as Xbox 360 and Android™-powered devices. Streampix will be included as part of many Xfinity triple-play packages, Blast!+ and Blast! Extra video/high-speed Internet packages, as well as separately for $4.99 a month with other video packages, and enables the company to have greater flexibility with packaging and bundling options.
