Comcast Will Test New Streaming TV Service in Baltimore



Streaming and on-demand programming are the future of television. But while upstarts like Netflix and Hulu are hustling for your streaming attention (and your monthly subscription fees), older media companies want to get in on the frenzy, too. Case in point: Comcast, the nation’s biggest cable company, which announced a pilot program for streaming television that will be tested in Baltimore within a few months.

Yes, Baltimore, Please Dump Comcast



Everyone hates Comcast. No, really, everyone hates Comcast.  Even Baltimore’s Chief Technology/Information Officer admits that we’re all “paying more here for lesser service” thanks to that company’s virtual monopoly in our city. Yes, since the city signed an agreement with the internet service provider in 2004, Baltimore residents have been stuck with  service that manages to be both slow and expensive. Luckily for us, that contract expires in 2016, and Baltimore is already exploring other options for the future.
