Comcast to Deliver Content Via Internet Devices?

Comcast is planning to test a new system that would allow consumers to replace their set top box with any Internet-ready device, including gaming consoles or laptop computers. Starting this fall, Comcast will start test cycles at MIT to use its broadband network to deliver content using VoIP. Instead of using the same technology that currently allows a user to watch select television shows on his or her computer, this new venture has Comcast streaming their entire lineup over the Internet. While Comcast has maintained that it has no plans to offer this new system in areas it does not serve, it is technically feasible to do so, and probably has competitors like TimeWarner and Cablevision feeling pretty nervous.
