Comcast launches ‘Stream TV’ service in Boston and Chicago areas

Cable giant Comcast has announced the launch of its live streaming TV service – ‘called Stream TV’ - in Boston and Chicago areas. The company also said that it has plans underway to launch the Stream TV service in its entire cable territory by early 2016.

The newly-launch Stream TV service will be available only to Comcast Internet-only customers. The service will offer live TV on a number of device, including computers, smartphones, and tablets.

Against the backdrop of the launch of Comcast’s Stream TV service in Boston and Chicago areas, a company spokesperson said that Stream TV usage will not count against Comcast customers’ 300GB data plans which the company has imposed in certain parts of its cable territory.

The Comcast spokesperson elaborated that Stream TV is an ‘IP cable service’ which is delivered over Comcast’s managed network to the home.

Towards that end, Comcast has also mentioned in an FAQ related to Stream TV service that "Stream TV is a cable streaming service delivered over Comcast's cable system, not over the Internet;” and also that “Stream TV data usage will not be counted towards your Xfinity Internet monthly data usage.”
