Comcast has launched the beta version of Watchable, a new, cross-platform video service that curates a selection of the best content from popular online video networks and shows in an easy-to-use experience.
Via Watchable, iOS, watchable.com and X1 users can watch videos from about 30 digital partners including the likes of Vice, Buzzfeed and TYT Network.
All Watchable beta content is supported entirely through advertising. Users can browse a full list of shows, organized by categories like Auto, Entertainment, Fashion & Style, Food & Travel, Funny, Gaming, Music, News, Science & Technology and Sports.
“We want people to try Watchable and tell us what they think,” explains Sam Schwartz, Chief Business Development Officer, Comcast Cable in TV. “Over time, we’ll add additional network partners, make the experience more personalized, and include new options to share content with friends.”
