Following the launch of Internet Plus in 2013 and Xfinity on Campus last year, Comcast unveiled a new TV service dubbed Stream, which is a streaming cable service that is similar to what Netflix is offering.

Currently in beta, Stream runs on mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and Smart TVs. This means that customers will not have to purchase additional devices or equipment. Stream lets customers watch live TV from major publishers like HBO for only $15 per month.

You can also view thousands of movies and shows, on-demand, on your favorite device. The subscription also comes with an access to TV Everywhere and Comcast’s cloud DVR, allowing customers to record shows for later viewing.

Comcast is planning to launch Stream in Boston this summer before hitting Chicago and Seattle. The goal is to launch the streaming service across the United States later this year. Xfinity Internet subscribers can start using Stream by signing up online and downloading the Xfinity TV app.

“We want to make ordering Stream as easy as buying a song online. And make tuning in to a show as simple as opening an email,” the company said in a statement.
