Comcast dropped a bombshell in the cable industry!
Yesterday 23 May 2023, the media giant unveiled its groundbreaking streaming service, ‘Now TV’, offering an impressive selection of 40 live channels—all at the affordable price of just $20 per month!
Comcast CEO Dave Watson said,
“Now TV is a great example of how our company brings together its collective video experiences, innovative technology, and superior broadband service to deliver some of the best entertainment into one affordable steaming bundle.”
It specifically targets those who crave the excitement of live TV but have little interest in sports and includes an impressive lineup of over 40 channels from renowned networks such as A&E, AMC, Hallmark, and select Warner Bros. Discovery channels.
However, there is one small catch—Now TV is exclusively available to Comcast Xfinity internet customers. This requirement ensures that existing subscribers can seamlessly enjoy the impressive selection of live channels offered by the service.
I wish they had a streaming service that offered ONLY news and live sports—basically, the complete opposite of what services like Frndly and Philo offer.
I expect it would cost more, but you should be able to get it for less than traditional cable without all the additional stuff that you can get from a service like Philo. If they ever offered this, it would be an instant hit.
However, the trouble with sports is, the leagues are greedy and big tech giants like Amazon, Apple and Google can outbid Comcast easily. I figure sports belong to the tech giants now.
I don’t know what’s going to happen. Maybe Max can include CNN at some point😁, but I’d hate for it to be a cut & paste from cable.
