Nashville first to get Comcast live video for devices

Cable giant Comcast is rolling out — finally, says CED Magazine — its Anyplay technology, which lets subscribers view any show live on their iPads and soon their Motorola Xoom devices. The first two cities to get the service — see its details here — are Nashville and Denver.

In a blog post today, Comcast's senior vice president of video product development Mark Hess wrote: "With AnyPlay, you can watch the channels that are included in your linear channel subscription through the Xfinity TV app on the iPad, and very soon the Motorola Xoom tablet. This means that while someone else watches a program in the living room, for example, you can watch another show on your iPad from the backyard deck, kitchen or other places around the home."

Comcast's announcement comes shortly after the company extended its deal with Walt Disney Co. and announced plans to let subscribers view live content from ABC, ESPN and other Disney networks outside their homes.
