Comcast adds 18 networks into live streaming lineup
Comcast has beefed up its TV Everywhere roster with the addition of 18 live streaming networks on its Xfinity TV Go app.
With the latest additions, Comcast now offers 53 live channels that can be viewed on the go via a Wi-Fi connection. The new channels are: A&E, Bravo, Cooking Channel, DIY Network, E!, Food Network, HGTV, History, mun2, Oxygen, Sprout, Starz, Syfy, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel, truTV and USA Network.
"Everything we do revolves around providing our customers with the very best content wherever and whenever they want it, and the Xfinity TV Go app is just another example of that," Matt Strauss, senior vice president and general manager, video services, Comcast Cable. "Xfinity TV customers can now enjoy live programming from more than 50 of the most popular networks. We will continue to aggressively expand both the live and On Demand offerings on the app and provide our customers with the ultimate selection of content across all devices."
Late last year, Comcast updated the Xfinity TV Go app and then launched 35 channels for mobile viewing outside of subscribers’ homes. The live programming can be viewed on Apple and Android devices, as well as on Comcast’s Xfinity web portal.
Last month in Boston, Comcast rolled out in-home streaming on mobile devices via a new app as well as a cloud-based DVR service.
