The SIRiusXM tv service will be available in 2018, Comcast announced Tuesday.
The service, which was launched on Fios in the United States in early 2018, will be free to all Comcast customers.
The SIRiiXM service was launched in the U.S. in January, and was available to those who had a Fios TV service.
Comcast’s announcement comes less than two weeks after Comcast CEO Brian Roberts announced that the company had reached an agreement to acquire the streaming service for $4.5 billion.
“The acquisition of SIRIIXMTV by Comcast is a smart and strategic investment in our portfolio of services that provides the best possible value for consumers, businesses and investors,” Roberts said in a statement.
“We are thrilled to be expanding the SIRiXMtv platform to the U of C and beyond.
The new service brings a new level of entertainment and content to Fios’ already popular service, and we look forward to expanding our partnership with the university to help students and fans stay connected on campus.”
In addition to Fines, Comcast is also buying the rights to Sirius XM, which Comcast acquired in February 2018 for $7.8 billion.
Sirius XM will become part of Comcast’s Sirius Xtra, which will be part of a combined company, according to the company.
In February, Comcast said it was acquiring Fios for $2.1 billion, with Comcast acquiring all of Fios’s broadcast TV and broadband services and the radio stations Sirius Xm and Xtra Xtra.
