Charter Communications Inc. has announced plans to offer Internet video in the city of Chicago.
The company is launching an online video platform that will allow Charter customers to stream videos, videos, and music without a subscription, the Chicago Tribune reported on Tuesday.
The service will be available to Charter customers beginning March 14.
Charter’s new service will not be compatible with Comcast’s Internet video services in the Chicago market.
Charter is owned by Comcast.
Comcast announced earlier this month that it is looking to buy Time Warner Cable, which owns Charter, and to create a new video and Internet service that will compete with Comcast-owned Charter in the video streaming market.
