Modular design, turnkey solution: Live Services done right.

Live Services enable media companies to leverage Comcast’s carrier-grade infrastructure for origination, processing, and distribution of live content directly to consumers and to other distributors including MVPDs, virtual MVPDs, and OTT service operators.

Decades of experience delivering live content to broadcast and digital destinations have been poured into our portfolio of Live Services capabilities. Whether you’re looking to incorporate live events streaming into your destination, or launch a live linear “always on” channel, our modular approach and true end-to-end capabilities translate into a faster time to market and a sustainable plan for long-term audience growth.
