Comcast Introduces NOW TV Streaming Option for Xfinity Internet Subscribers

Comcast NOW TV is a streaming option that provides 60+ streaming and FAST channels, along with Peacock Premium for $20 per month if you subscribe to the Xfinity Internet service.

Xfinity Now TV

2023 is living up to our prediction that this year was going to deliver a streaming earthquake. We have already had HBO Max change their name to MAX, Netflix crack down on password sharing, and Roku retire support for its original Roku 4K streamer. Now, it looks like Comcast is joining in with its own interesting announcement.  

NOW TV

Comcast has unveiled a new streaming offering, labeled NOW TV,  available as a $20 per month add-on for those that subscribe to Comcast’s Xfinity internet service. 

For $20 per month, NOW TV includes 40+ live channels from A+E, AMC, Hallmark, and Warner/Discovery, plus 20+ integrated FAST (Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV) channels from NBC, Sky, and Xumo Play

In addition, the Peacock Premium streaming service is included at no extra cost.

Tip: No new equipment is required, and users have the ability to sign up and cancel anytime.

From Dave Watson, President, and CEO, of Comcast Cable: “With content and connectivity at the core of our company, we are uniquely positioned to build and deliver streaming entertainment offerings unlike anything else out there today…NOW TV is a great example of how our company brings together its collective video experiences, innovative technology, and superior broadband service to deliver some of the best entertainment into one affordable streaming bundle.
