Cable giant Comcast is set to launch a new video-on-demand service for its clients called Streampix. This is surely an effort to keep people from cutting the cord on their cable subscriptions and switching to a streaming service like Netflix.
From the announcement:
“This new service complements the 75,000 TV shows and movies currently available on Xfinity On Demand, XfinityTV.com and through the Xfinity TV app. To launch Streampix, Comcast has entered into licensing agreements with leading movie studios and programming providers including Disney-ABC Television Group*, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Cookie Jar and built a line-up of top-rated content, which is available starting this week.”
If you have Xfinity Triple Play (TV, internet, and phone service) from Comcast, you get Streampix for no additional charge. Other customers can subscribe for $4.95 a month.
