Comcast Launches New Streaming Site

Posted on 06 October 2010 by Christian

The cable giant has officially dipped its toes into the coming streaming-video war by launching “the free online portion of its Xfinity TV service,” giving all 23 million or so Comcast subscribers the ability to get video on-demand online.
