Comcast Corp., the largest U.S. cable television operator, on Wednesday said it will offer subscribers to its high-speed data service a new bundle of on-demand video games. Comcast said that for a separate monthly fee of $14.95, subscribers would have unlimited access to more than 60 PC-based games, from mainstream titles to educational software. New titles will be added each month, the company said.
Comcast's programming arm already has a foothold in video games, in the form of the gaming channel G4, which recently merged with the company's newly acquired channel TechTV. The new G4techTV remains focused primarily on games, and Comcast said clips and other features from the channel would be available as part of the new games service, which runs on systems developed by Exent Technologies.
