  • Kevin: US cable television provider Comcast has rolled out an on-demand television and movie service that gives customers access to more than 2,000 hours of television and movies. The service used to be called TV Everywhere, but has now been renamed (I hate the industry term re-branded) Fancast XFINITY TV. This is available to Comcast customers who subscribe to both cable and internet. It's a bundling play, which makes sense. It's yet another piece of the on demand efforts. I'm sure that we'll see a lot of models before the market settles down.
