Optical cable TV is becoming increasingly popular as consumers move to Internet-based cable alternatives.
With Optic cable TV, consumers can watch cable channels on their home screens, while also getting access to other TV programming on demand via the Internet.
The company announced a deal with Comcast on Wednesday, allowing customers to stream premium content via the Comcast Network.
Comcast subscribers will be able to watch up to eight channels of premium cable channels, including HBO, AMC, Discovery Channel, FX, Fox, AMC’s The Walking Dead and Cinemax, along with live sports including UFC and NASCAR.
The Comcast deal will be available on Optic Cable TV starting today, according to Comcast.
The company will also offer Optic customers the ability to access a new “Netflix-like” subscription service, Optic TV Everywhere.
Consumers can sign up for this service today.
Optic cable will be a premium service that includes more than 150 channels of cable and satellite TV programming.
Comcast will continue to provide the network, but will no longer be a content provider.
“Optic TV is a premium cable service offering that provides subscribers access to premium content across multiple channels of live, on-demand programming and a selection of premium apps and services,” Comcast said in a statement.
“Customers can access Optic services from Comcast, AT&T, Charter, Comcast Fiber, Verizon, and Time Warner Cable.”
Optic has an additional 300 channels of TV channels, but most are on-network channels.
The network is designed to provide a seamless, seamless experience for customers and also serves as a platform for future expansion.
Opti will be offering Optic television services on a variety of platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Xbox 360, AppleTV, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and smart TVs.
Optic is also partnering with Netflix to bring the content to consumers via the Netflix-like subscription service.
