Comcast turns down Streampix OTT service

Monday 29 September 2014 | 19:27 CET | News
In a recent filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Comcast said it is discontinuing its Streampix over-the-top video offering, reported Light Reading. Citing limited interest from subscribers, Comcast said "both the site and the app are being decommissioned, and the standalone offer was discontinued. Going forward, the Streampix service will simply be part of the Xfinity TV app and website, like other VoD offerings."
