Comcast Says Streaming Xbox 360 On-Demand Content Won’t Contribute to Data Caps

Comcast recently confirmed with ArsTechnica that it will not count the data consumed by customers for streaming Xbox 360 content towards a customer’s monthly data cap. The cable provider currently caps its customers at 250GB of data per month. The data is “delivered over our private IP network and not the public Internet,” Comcast explained in a statement to ArsTechnica. That means anyone with subscriptions to Hulu, Boxee, Netflix or other services may want to think twice about using their Xbox 360 to stream content instead of those aforementioned services. We’ll have to wait and see if other cable providers follow suit, or if Comcast is the only one adding this type of exception.
