Comcast is proposing a steep increase in its broadband broadband prices on Friday as the company tries to convince the public it’s providing high-quality broadband to the most-populous parts of the U.S. The company is also introducing a new television service, called “The Movie” to help it compete with Netflix.
Here’s what you need know about Comcast’s new pricing plan and the impact it will have on your internet and phone bills.
What you should know: Comcast says it will introduce “The Movies” on Friday, the company’s first service.
The streaming service will be available for $14.99 a month and will cost $40 a year if you add a broadband connection to your account.
That’s a substantial increase over the $29.99 Netflix offer that has long been available to Comcast subscribers.
What it means for you: The new pricing offer means you’ll be paying about 20% more for internet service in the coming months than you would if you paid the same monthly rate for Comcast’s previous service, Comcast said in a statement.
“While this may seem like a small price increase for a movie, it will increase the cost of broadband service across the country and across the business, affecting all customers and businesses alike,” Comcast said.
What’s happening now: Comcast’s proposed price hike follows a nationwide effort by the cable giant to woo customers to its new streaming service.
Comcast is also preparing to introduce its new television show, called the “Movie,” on Friday.
Comcast’s plan is based on a study that the company conducted of the nation’s internet and television traffic, and the company said that data is expected to show that Comcast’s internet traffic has been up 25% in the past year.
The new television offering will cost Comcast about $30 a month.
What the news means for Comcast: Comcast is going to introduce “the Movie” on Netflix, which will be the first service that customers will be able to access on the streaming service in about a year, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said on Friday afternoon.
The show is being produced by Comcast’s parent company, Time Warner Cable, and will be streamed online through the company.
“This is an exciting time for the entertainment industry,” Roberts said at a conference call with analysts.
“Netflix is the most widely used internet service provider in the world.
Its customer base is large and diverse, with nearly 5 billion subscribers.
And it is our mission to deliver an exceptional service to our customers, while supporting the growth and expansion of the content and technology industry.”
The new TV service will cost subscribers $9.99 per month, which is around 20% higher than Comcast’s current rate.
What to know: This pricing plan is expected, but not yet official, because Comcast does not yet have a formal announcement on when the new service will launch.
Comcast also says it is testing an additional option for customers that want to stream the movie from their computers.
The Netflix service is currently available in some areas, such as parts of San Francisco and Portland, Ore.
The service is also available in parts of Boston and San Diego.
What this means for your internet service: Comcast has said that it’s planning to expand its internet service to customers in places that it says are still “trending toward broadband.”
Comcast is already rolling out high-speed internet to people who don’t have access to traditional broadband service, such a people who live in the suburbs and rural areas.
The move comes as other cable and satellite companies, including AT&T, Verizon, and Charter, have increased the speeds of their broadband services in recent years.
But this is the first time Comcast is rolling out a television service for its customers.
Comcast said it would add the “The Hollywood Movie” service to its existing “The Netflix Movie” television service on Friday to help attract subscribers who are still looking for better quality broadband.
Comcast has also been testing a new feature for its cable service, which lets customers control the volume of streaming video they’re watching from their TV.
This new feature allows customers to select what video they want to watch, and it will be displayed on the television screen.
Comcast and Netflix are also planning to launch new television shows for the upcoming season of the popular “Hollywood Game Night.”
Comcast has yet to announce any plans for its new services, but the company is already experimenting with a new TV channel on its YouTube channel.
What we know about this new pricing proposal: Comcast said that “The movie” will cost about 20 cents more than Netflix for every additional 10 Mbps (megabits per second) of internet connection, a higher price than Netflix’s previous rate of around 7 cents per Mbps.
Comcast plans to charge subscribers $6.99 for the service each month.
The price hike will affect subscribers in more than a dozen U..
S., Canadian and European countries, including Canada.
The average monthly bill for a Netflix subscriber is $848, and an average monthly cost
