Comcast to Bring TV Everywhere in December

Comcast Fancast tv everywhere

Remember those dire predictions over the summer from folks saying we wouldn’t see a national roll-out of TV Everywhere until 2012 or 2014? Well, time for the experts to eat their hats. Several people are reporting on Twitter that Comcast just announced at the NewTeeVee Live conference that it will launch TV Everywhere for everyone next month. There will be no additional cost to Comcast subscribers, and apparently the on-demand content will be available on up to three devices.

A quick reminder of what’s behind the scenes with this news: Comcast has been bulking up on bandwidth over the last year, with more more than 34 million homes now passed with DOCSIS 3.0 service. The operator has also reclaimed spectrum by transitioning more analog channels over to digital. All of this was carefully planned just for the eventuality of TV Everywhere and other video demands. Welcome to the future.

  2. Nice,

    Amazing to see a large provider entity moving at the speed of light, at least for their kind.

    The cable folks have their work cut out for them but has been a great 2009 so far to see how things have evolved from Jan/Feb to now

  10. This TV everywhere with Comcast seems to be lacking in a huge area. With this you cannot take TV with you everywhere, you must use it with the house and area of the service. You might be able to take it in your backyard if your wifi will reach out there. I have the Sling adapter with my job DISH, and I can take it with me to work on my android phone. I can also access my DVR recordings and set timer. I works with my computer at work as well.
