Comcast Launches Local Health Program


Comcast teamed up with Starfish Health Partners to launch weekly program Starfish Health TV in Northern California.

The MSO and the new-media company for integrative and holistic healthcare said the show “offers consumers innovative and informative programming that addresses the holistic medical approach of mind, body and spirit.”

Starfish Health TV will air weekly on local Comcast channels and full-time on the operator’s video-on-demand service.

“Investing in the health of our customers and communities is important to us," Comcast vice president of communications marketing for the Bay-area region Rick Lang said in a prepared statement. "Starfish Health aims to bring our customers comprehensive healthcare information to create healthier lifestyles.”
