Comcast tests Stream OTT service in Boston as launch looms

While summer came and went with no sign of Comcast's announced linear OTT service, Stream, launching as planned, the cable operator says it is now conducting beta tests in the Boston area.  A broader launch of the $15 per month streaming service is "imminent," according to the operators video chief, Matthew Strauss.

Like other cable operators, Comcast is racing to market with an over-the-top service that provides a "skinny" bundle of channels to cord cutters. Charter Communications and Time Warner Cable are also experimenting with low-priced linear OTT services. FierceCable has more details here.
