It looks like Comcast is moving to reach out to cord cutters with a new live TV streaming service. The service, named Xfinity Instant TV, will be priced as low as $15 a month to roughly $40 a month, sources told Reuters. It will include local broadcast networks as well the ability to add add-on packages like Sports with channels like ESPN and a Spanish language package with channels such as Telemundo and Univision (similar to how Sling TV offers their add-ons).

Xfinity Instant TV is expected to be available sometime in the third quarter. It will not be a national service, but will be available to more than 50 million homes within Comcast’s footprint, which includes cities such as Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

Comcast has already been testing a $15-a-month streaming video service called Stream. This service as been available as a trial run in Boston and Chicago, sources told Reuters. Xfinity Instant TV is said to be a revamped version of that service and will be rolled out nationwide in Comcast’s territories.

Comcast seems to want to keep up with their main competitors Dish’s Sling TV and AT&T’s DIRECTV NOW. Both have seen great success with their live TV streaming services and it appears Comcast wants in on the action.

We currently do not know channel lineups or other package details as Comcast has yet to make an official announcement of the service.
