Comcast ponders mobile TV
Comcast is considering offering mobile video, and may eventually combine that offering with its On Demand Online service.
Comcast CFO Michael Angelakis, speaking at the Goldman Sachs Communicopia conference, said Comcast can envision sometime in the future having a wireless component to supplement On Demand Online, according to press reports.
While mobile video is inevitable, the statement seems speculative. Comcast is only now offering wireless services through Clearwire, in which it (and other MSOs) has invested. The vehicle for mobile video would presumably be Clear WiMAX.
Angelakis was also quoted as saying Comcast is considering delivering a wireless voice product, but as with wireless video, the company is not setting any date for a commercial introduction of the service.
