FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said FCC staffers are reviewing Comcast's announcement of its subscriber-only broadband video service Xfinity, and similar services, but only to get a better handle on them for now.

"I'm sure the bureau is looking at that and proactively trying to understand it," he told a reporter Wednesday after the FCC's public meeting.

"But beyond that it is not something that has gotten a lot of discussion at this point."

Comcast announced Tuesday the national rollout of its video-on-demand online service, which will be available only to its subscribers.
