Comcast today confirmed that Stream TV, its OTT linear TV product for Xfinity broadband-only subscribers, is finally launching in the Boston area.
When Comcast initially announced Stream in July, the operator said it would roll out in Boston by the end of summer 2015, followed shortly after by Chicago and Seattle.
Summer came and went and, as TV Predictions pointed out, Stream did not materialize.
Now Stream is finally online in the greater Boston region and Comcast says that it will offer the service across its entire footprint by early 2016.
Stream TV costs $15 per month and includes Xfinity subscribers watch a handful of broadcast channels live on tablets, smartphones and laptops. It includes access to TV Everywhere and cloud DVR.
Customers who sign up will get the first month free and can access content online or through the Xfinity TV app.
