Comcast Becomes the First TV Provider to Give Users Current Series ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC VOD Content

Looks like Comcast isn’t playing around with its Xfinity offering. The company has just announced that they’ll be adding ABC and FOX to its video on-demand (VOD) offering today, making them the first TV provider to offer current series TV content from all four major networks. If you remember, Netflix tried to make a big deal that they added CBS content recently. However, the majority of the programming Netflix is allowed to stream is archive material. Hulu is missing content from CBS entirely. Comcast says TV shows from these and other networks will be available for viewing “the day after the TV series’ live broadcast and will be fast forward disabled.”
