As part of Comcast and Charter’s plans to launch a selection of 4K streaming devices, Element Xumo TVs are set to go on sale later this year.
With new Xumo streaming players and smart TVs coming in late 2023, the existing Xumo streaming service is being rebranded as Xumo Play.
Comcast Is the Proud New Owner of Xumo
The free, ad-supported streaming service will continue to operate independently, according to its new owner
Comcast is reportedly in talks to purchase the free live TV and on-demand streaming service, Xumo. Comcast also owns NBCUniversal. With NBCU planning to launch a new Peacock streaming service in 2020, it could be the case Xumo becomes part of Comcast and NBCU’s grander Peacock plan – should a deal be finalized.
Redbox is the latest service to get in on the AVOD action. However, it is far from the finished product.
