Comcast's grand experiment in on demand Internet video---formerly known as TV Everywhere---has gone national. New name: Fancast XFINITY TV.

The cable giant should have stuck with TV Everywhere (statement, Techmeme).

TV Everywhere, err Fancast XFINITY TV, is the cable industry's answer to Internet video services. The general idea is to make your cable subscription portable to the Internet.

Fancast.com is Comcast's online TV site and has 12,000 hours of content for free. In a nutshell, Comcast is laying a subscription service on top of that platform.

The XFINITY site is still in beta, but any Comcast customer with a cable or Internet subscription can give it a whirl.

  • Nice Debut....?

    Nice...they link to Hulu for Fox shows and the CSI Miami Show wouldn't even load up (CBS). So...what is it that's special about what they are doing??

  • Sarah COMCAST??

    The idea of TV everywhere is wonderful. As a Dish employee I have TV everywhere with my 722 and the Sling adapter. I love being able to travel with my phone and/or laptop and never miss any of my new favorite shows. What I have notice researching about TV everywhere is Comcast still can not get LIVE TV. Live TV everywhere is a must have.
