About a month after Time Warner Inc. chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes said he was open to allowing premium channel Home Box Office to ride on a straight broadband offering, Comcast apparently has taken him up on it.
According to reports, Comcast is quietly testing a new package that would give consumers a 20-25 Megabit per second high speed data connection, its Streampix multi-screen video on demand service, WiFi access, HBO and local broadcast networks for an introductory price of $39.99 per month. The price would rise to about $70 per month after the first year.
Comcast officials did not immediately return calls for comment.
