As Customers Enjoy Watching What They Want, When They Want

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK),
the country's leading provider of cable, entertainment and
communications products and services, continues to change the way
people watch television, today announcing that more than one billion
programs have been viewed on the company's ON DEMAND service to date
this year.

With this announcement, the company is on track to surpass previous
expectations that one billion ON DEMAND programs would be viewed in
2005 alone. Last year, Comcast customers viewed 567 million video on
demand programs. ON DEMAND views are IP streams of video content that
are delivered to customers' television sets via Comcast's
next-generation fiber network. Launched in late 2002 in Philadelphia,
ON DEMAND is now available in all of the company's major markets.
