Comcast is looking at ways to deliver on-demand video content to its subscribers via the Internet. Comcast Chief Financial Officer Michael Angelaks said, "As you know, we are testing today a service called On Demand Online. I can envision some point in the future that having a wireless component. And there has been lots of discussion about voice clients at some point and I don't want to say much more than that, but I think that data is really an important product for us to lead in the wireless side." Comcast's short-term goals include delivering mobile Internet to laptops and similar devices, as well as on-demand video. Comcast does not plan to offer on-demand TV content to mobile phones, nor does it have immediate plans to offer any voice services, but Comcast is still exploring those possibilities.

Comcast "Free"

Hey! we're going to offer you ___ for being a loyal customer at no additional cost! Those other guys charge you $15 a month. Isn't that crazy?

(Three months later Comcast increases their rates $15 in addition to the $12 they seem to jack it up every three months anyway)
Sad My bill just went up $6 this month. Internet $2, $2 cable and $1 for both HBO and Showtime. Son-of-Itch!

I just can't wait for those crooks to get their hands into the mobile market... If my carrier starts to sponsor them, I'll run... RUN FAST!!!
just another thing consumers dont need but will throw a huge fit about if anything goes wrong

I will play Devil's advocate...

Comcast is not offered where I live and don't know much about them. So I can't argue on their behalf. However, since one of the many future intentions Of LTE and WiMAX is to provide this type of service into the palm of our hands, I find this exciting and very cool to see initiatives in moving forward. Bring it on!
