Comcast to sell streaming-TV bundle for internet customers

March 21, 2019 - 1:42 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Comcast is launching an aggregated bundle of existing streaming-TV apps for $5 a month.

The new service, "Flex," available March 26, brings together apps that customers already pay for, like Netflix, Amazon's video or HBO, and free services like YouTube, Pluto and Tubi, and lets users search for TV shows and movies across the different services.

All these apps are already available through a Roku and several other gadgets and platforms. Comcast hopes customers will pay for its version, which comes with a 4K HDR box and a voice remote.

It's only for people who live in Comcast's markets and take their internet service.
