You'd think Comcast would have rushed to add NBC Sports Gold's niche sports streaming to its media platforms given that it owns NBC, but not so -- it's just adding the service now. As of September 3rd, customers with Xfinity X1 or Xfinity Flex set-tops can finally use Sports Gold to watch ad-free (and sometimes live) events that often get short shrift on conventional sports channels. Consider this a catch-all for Xfinity cable customers who aren't satisfied with their existing options.

As before, Sports Gold isn't so much a conventional streaming service as it is a collection of "passes" for particular sports. You can subscribe to a Premier League pass if you crave English footie action, PGA Tour Live if you're a golf addict, and Indycar if you like that other American motorsport. There's a horde of additional specialized passes, ranging from cycling to lacrosse to rugby. This doesn't cover every sports fandom on the planet, not by a longshot, but it might fill in some gaps.
