[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Comcast has launched Xfinity Streampix, a new subscription video service that enables Xfinity video customers to instantly view movies and TV shows in and out of the home, including past seasons of current hit shows and full series, to multiple screens and devices including TVs (as a subscription On Demand folder), online platforms and mobile devices.

This Xfinity Streampix service complements the 75,000 TV shows and movies currently available on Xfinity On Demand, XfinityTV.com and through the Xfinity TV app. Comcast has entered into licensing agreements with movie studios and programming providers including Disney-ABC Television Group, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Cookie Jar Entertainment, among others.

Marcien Jenckes (Senior vice president and general manager, Video Services, Comcast): Streampix is another step moving TV Everywhere forward by giving customers access to an even greater library of popular choices to watch.

In the coming year, the Streampix service will be available on additional devices such as Xbox 360 and Android-powered devices, says Comcast. Streampix will be included as part of many Xfinity triple-play packages, as well.
