After rumblings back in the spring, Comcast is officially rolling out its new XFINITY Instant TV bundle for broadband customers today. Plans start at $18 per month as the cable giant looks to retain cord-cutters that are becoming increasingly dependent on services like Hulu, Netflix and others. Comcast’s new skinny bundle IPTV will only be available to select customers at launch in beta, with additional markets rolling out over time. A full breakdown of each package with pricing can be found below.
