Comcast Launching MYX TV In Washington

Comcast is launching MYX TV, an Asian American-targeted music and lifestyle network this month in the state of Washington.

The channel will be available on its Xfinity Digital Preferred tier in Seattle and Western Washington, including Spokane, according to MYX TV. Deal terms were not disclosed.

Boosting its carriage of minority-targeted channels was one of Comcast's pledges in securing government approval of its NBCU deal.
