Comcast is considering a nationwide streaming TV service

Comcast recently said that a so-called OTT (over-the-top) internet TV service is not a priority at the moment. “There is significantly more upside and profitability in going deeper and deeper into our base versus following a video-only offering OTT,” said Comcast VP Matt Strauss at a November convention. Nevertheless, it negotiated the rights during recent carriage negotiations with cable and network broadcasters as a hedge against future developments. – Steve Dent, Engadget
