Select HBO Shows Goes Online Today with New Comcast Service (video)

Comcast's much anticipated launch of its its "TV Everywhere" service, which allows subscribers to Comcast to watch selected videos on their computers, has gone live in beta, today.

The company has just announced a number of television shows and films which have not been online before, including a number of shows from HBO including all the episodes of the Soprano's, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and a number of major theatrical films.

The service is now available nationally to all Comcast subscribers who have both data and television service. 

There are 30 cables networks on the new service with 2,000 hours of programming up on the service.

The service publishes videos in a video format provided by Move Networks.

The company calls the new product Fancast xfinity TV.

Nearly 15.7 million Comcast subscribers can access the new service.  Video can be watched just on personal computers.  Plans are in place to make the service available to mobile devices next year.

Last month we spoke with Comcast's Amy Banse about the new initiative.  We have republished the interview today.
