Comcast: Xfinity on Xbox data won't be capped

There were numerous reports this weekend speculating that language in a FAQ post on the Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) website suggests that the cable TV operator will soon be launching Xfinity on Demand on the Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Xbox.

However, the timing is not what everyone's talking about. The FAQ also makes clear that "since the content is being delivered over our private IP network and not the public Internet, it does not count against a customer's bandwidth cap."

The decision may appear surprising, but is probably an obvious one to make, since service providers base caps on the idea that the data governed by the cap is being consumed on the Internet. In any case, Xbox users will be happy. Other Xfinity content, of course, still falls under the cap.
