The big deal for Comcast in 2008 was its Project Infinity
plan to offer 6,000 movies per month and 1,000 selections in HD
on its video on-demand service, and word has leaked to Multichannel News
that the next step is consolidating the company's efforts into two data centers covering the entire U.S. with the ability to deliver up to 100,000 VOD choices. Added bonus? This could be part of a plan to add Start Over
-style network DVR options. Word is this doesn't have anything to do with the potential OnDemand Online
plans, but as long as squeezing down the number of servers means shows will pop up on VOD when they're supposed to and not hours/days/weeks later, we're all for it.
