Comcast Xfinity TV
Another popular cable TV provider in the US is Comcast. They offer Indian channel packages that you can add to your primary subscription.
You can get only a few Indian channels in the Xfinity package. You may get these following channels: Sony Asia (Hindi), TV Asia (Gujarati), Zee TV (Hindi), Eros Now (Hindi), Star India Plus (Hindi), Star India Gold (Hindi), ABP News (Hindi), Vijay TV (Tamil). They don’t have as many subscription options compared to Sling TV or YuppTV. You only get Hindi channels, and they don’t offer South Indian languages such as Telugu or Kannada.
Xfinity will be costly in this price range to access these channels but if you don’t care about the English packages, consider other providers – you can get more content at a lower cost.
Xfinity Plans & Package
When it comes to Choosing the Streaming platform you need to google it and analyze which one is perfect for your match. Sling TV and Disney bundle is a great platform to watch all your Indian content in one place. Personally, I chose the Disney bundle because it has all Indian programs like Live Cricket matches, Serials, Old & Latest movies, and news channels.
