Amazon quietly launched an e-commerce channel in the last couple of days that's selling TV-and-Internet-bundles from Comcast Xfinity. Called Amazon Cable Store, the channel represents a partnership between the two companies.
"Amazon is not only the biggest online retailer and a place where millions of our customers shop every day, but it's also a brand that's unrivaled when it comes to customer service," Charlie Herrin, evp of customer experience for Comcast Cable, said in a statement. "Amazon's new marketplace provides an immersive online destination to showcase our terrific suite of products including Xfinity X1."
The Amazon-Comcast development was first reported by TVPredictions.com before it was announced today.
