In addition to 1,000 live HD choices, Comcast plans to offer 3,000 high-def movies every month.
New Project Infinity will also allow customers to watch any content On Demand.
The king of all cable companies is about to rule the HD roost. Comcast just announced that they will deliver more than 1,000 high-def choices for 2008.
This HD lineup will include more than 1,000 live HD movies and TV shows—many of which will end up in the company’s On Demand offerings. Aside from live content, Comcast also plans to make 3,000 HD movies available each month via its On Demand service.
On Demand is the main component of the company’s Project Infinity, an initiative that will allow Comcast customers to truly watch TV on their own time. The project will put any TV show, movie or any other user-generated content (via Fancast.com) up for On Demand.
The On Demand service currently has more than 10,000 selections available each month. Project Infinity will take advantage of the company’s “existing fiber network and national IP backbone.”
