Comcast plans to offer a streaming video service called Xfinity Instant TV.

Citing unnamed sources, Reuters reports that the service is expected to debut in the third quarter of 2017. It would be available to Comcast’s high-speed internet subscribers — more than 50 million homes.

Xfinity Instant TV is aimed at Comcast’s high-speed internet subscribers who can’t afford or don’t want to pay for bigger cable packages. It will cost as little as $15 a month and no more than roughly $40 a month, according to Reuters.

The service will include:

  • Major broadcast networks
  • Add-on options for sports channels, such as ESPN
  • Add-on options for Spanish language channels, such as Telemundo and Univision

Reuters also notes that some of Comcast’s pay-TV competitors already offer streaming video services. For example, Dish Network offers Sling TV and AT&T offers DirecTV Now.

“… I’m here to tell you as a veteran cord-cutter that it’s well worth it. I haven’t had cable TV for almost three years and I can honestly say that I don’t miss it. I no longer have to buy bundled packages of cable channels to get just a few shows that I really want. …”
