As part of a larger carriage and TV
Everywhere deal inked earlier this year with the Disney/ABC Television Group,
Comcast has added live streams of the Disney kids' channels to its website at
Xfinity.com/tv, reported J T. Ramsay, chief blogger at the Comcast Corporation
The launch means that authenticated Comcast subscribers will have online access
to live streams of Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD.
As previously reported, Disney/ABC Television Group had decided to offer live
streams of its kids channels as well as extensive on demand content as part of
the authenticated apps it launched in June. The decision was based on research
that showed strong interest in having access to the live streams and Comcast
seems to have come to the same conclusion.
