Comcast offering HBO Go without cable box

Comcast is testing a plan called Internet Plus which will provide up to 25Mbps internet plus (get it?) HBO, XFINITY Streampix and basic cable for as low as $39.99 per month (for the first year). This seems to be the dawn of a cable operator providing à la carte TV channels through internet streaming. An HBO subscription generally runs between $15-$20, so this introductory price is quite a deal.

Obviously, it still includes a basic cable subscription, but never before has a premium channel been available for streaming without a corresponding cable subscription to that channel. Let’s hope ESPN and NBC follow suit.
