Comcast will start testing IP-delivered television using none other than the MIT campus as the beta testing location. Now what better place to test technology, right? Their new “internet protocol” technology, which is already in use by other TV providers most notably AT&T and their IPTV-delivered U-verse service, will allow campus residents and visitors to watch TV without a cable connection. The Wall Street Journal reports Comcast’s intent is to provide television through any device that can connect to the internet.
In other Comcast news, the company has been strongly opposing the City of Boston’s petition to have the FCC regulate its cable service pricing. More on this at Boston.com.
