Comcast starts New Video Site - Fancast.com

Comcast has announced that it will acquire movie site Fandango, as well as launch a new entertainment site aimed and helping manage its entertainment experience across different devices and channels.

The movie site Fandango's acquisition will become a source for the new site, called Fancast.com. The site will also continue operating as it had before the acquisition, as well as continuing its exclusive relationships with several major theater chains.

Fancast will operate almost as like a YouTube of sorts, allowing the consumer to search for information shows, movies, actors and actresses, as well as watch video content available from the site.

Comcast Interactive Media will run the site, and its content will be featured throughout the network of Comcast web sites, including Comcast.net and Fandango.com.
