Comcast promises hours and hours of on-demand iPad TV!

You like movies? We like movies. We all like movies and now it seems Comcast has a super plan which means you’ll be watching huge amounts of video content on your iPad. Hooray!

Comcast today announced it intends offering live TV streaming on ‘tablets’ (iPads by any other name) this year, with almost 3,000 hours of on-demand movies and TV shows for Apple’s iPad.

We understand that some of the proposals aren’t, like, totally clear *according to Dan Frommer*, but we do get it that the ultimate goal here is to make the tablet as much of a video outlet as your TV.

“Later this year, customers will be able to watch live news, TV shows and movies in their homes whenever they want,” the company said in a release.

Comcast plans to roll out its new play now feature, which will enable customers using the popular Xfinity TV iPad app to watch nearly 3,000 hours of On Demand content, including popular movies and hit TV shows, either in the home or on-the-go, including anywhere there is a wireless connection. The initial selection of programs and movies is just the beginning. Comcast plans to bring thousands of additional choices to the iPad in the weeks and months ahead and to add the same functionality and content to Android powered devices later this year.
