ViacomCBS Inc. renewed its content carriage agreement with Comcast Corp. for 23 CBS (US)-owned television stations in 15 major markets across the U.S. The parties also struck a deal to offer CBS' streaming service, CBS All Access, on Xfinity X1 and Flex platforms later this year.
Flex is a streaming product made available through a set-top box tailored to Comcast internet-only customers.
The distribution of cable channels Showtime, Smithsonian Channel (US), Pop TV and CBS Sports Network (US) to Xfinity customers is also a part of the deal, according to a Jan. 8 news release.
The agreement also includes TV Everywhere availability of programming from CBS and CBS Sports Network for Xfinity customers on CBS.com, the CBS app and Comcast's Xfinity Stream platform.
Under the new agreement, two MyNetworkTV (US) affiliates will be available in Boston and Miami, and the CBS-owned independent station will also be available in New York.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
