Comcast launches new online video service today

ComcastBuying NBC isn't the only big news from Comcast happening at the end of the 2009. Today they're launching a new online on-demand service. It's only for Comcast customers, but I'm a Comcast customer, so I'll be able to watch it!

It's called XFinity, which sounds like that name for the next Stargate spinoff but is actually a new part of the Fancast site where you can watch TV shows from channels like HBO, AMC, A&E, STARZ, The History Channel, and Cinemax. That means you can watch shows like True Blood, Entourage, Mad Men, The Colbert Report, Big Love, and many other shows. (By the way, right now Fancast is running a marathon of Friends Christmas episodes.)

Now that Comcast owns a big chunk of NBC, I wonder how this service could someday be combined with Hulu in some way, or if launching this service will affect Hulu in other ways.

Comcast isn't available in my area. I just wonder what this is going to cost others though? Why would anyone pay a steep price for this ervice because you know it won't come cheap when you can just go with a proven online TV service provider for a fraction of the cost? Such as http://www.tv4pcs.net or http://www.yourteamlive.com

You have to be more than just a Comcast customer to access the cable channel content online (HBO, Cinemax, etc.), you have to actually subscribe to those channels as part of your cable package to watch them online.
