Comcast’s Brian Roberts has taken the stage at The Cable Show and dropped the first news bomb. According to Roberts, Comcast is taking a “quantum” leap forward in expanding its available on-demand content to include up to 11,000 movies. That’s right, 11,000 movies. VOD content will jump from 8,500 to 70,000 hours available. Comcast is launching the new content in a couple of test markets first including Philadelphia. Lucky for me.
Other stats from Brian Roberts:
- Comcast has exceeded the 15 billion mark for on-demand orders
- There are 350 million Comcast on-demand views per month
- If on-demand was its own channel, it would be the second highest watched channel for Comcast
