With more and more streaming services becoming available along with increased internet speeds, more and more people are making the move to “cut the cable” and ditch their pricey monthly cable and satellite subscription plans.
New services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, Apply TV, Chromecast, Movie Box and now HBO’s own streaming service let people choose exactly what they want to spend money on.
Comcast (Xfinity) is seeking to stem the tide of cable cutters by offering its own $15 streaming service.
According to TheBlaze/AP:
The nation’s largest cable company said the new service available to its Internet customers, called Stream, will cost $15 a month. Anyone using the service will be able to watch live TV from about a dozen networks, including HBO, on phones, tablets and laptops. The service includes on-demand movies and shows.
Comcast Corp. said that it will launch the service in Boston at the end of the summer, followed by Chicago and Seattle. It plans to make it available to all its Internet service customers by early 2016.
The cost of the service will put it right inline with Netflix, Hulu Plus and other premium services.
