Submission + - Technology: Comcast Pushing TV To Phones (informationweek.com)

Tiger_Storms writes: Comcast's CFO Michael Angelakis said it would eventually allow its cable television subscribers to watch shows via the Web at no additional charge. This would also be open to cell phones via a mobile browser, or potentially as applications on devices like iPhone or BlackBerry smartphones. Comcast's mobile service would likely be delivered over WiMax, as Comcast and other cable companies have invested in Clearwire and its 4G networks. Comcast has already started to resell Clearwire's WiMax service in certain markets, and Angelakis indicated the company could eventually add voice components to its wireless packages. If it adds wireless voice services, Comcast would be able to offer customers the "quadruple play," where one company provides users with home telephone, mobile phone, cable TV, and Internet services. This would increase competition with telecoms like AT&T and Verizon, who are already capable of quadruple play offerings in certain markets with U-Verse and FiOS.
