Comcast is making its gaming-focused site GameInvasion.net available to a national audience. The site, previously only available to the cable company's high-speed Internet customers, is targeted at the hard-core gaming community.
The site will now expand, through a deal with pro-video game league Major League Gaming, to stream the league's MLG Pro Circuit TV show. The show will also run on Comcast On Demand.
