Comcast is going to test a new way to deliver TV channels in an effort to better compete with online video services and to offer better integration between internet and cable services. The company will test the service at MIT this fall, which would allow users to replace their set-top box with any Internet-ready device, like a laptop or video game console. The service will be provided over Internet Protocol and will use Comcast's broadband network to deliver a signal to user's television over IP.
According to Comcast, the purpose of the new service is to deliver live TV to any device that can connect to the Internet.
In case the tests turn out to be successful, the new IP-video system would eventually be added to Comcast's existing suite of services, along with its traditional cable service.
