Comcast CEO Brian Roberts says the cable giant will cancel XFinity TV, Hulu and YouTube for July because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy.
Roberts says Comcast expects to be ready for the new season.
Roberts also said the cable company will announce plans for the company’s Xfinite TV streaming service, which is slated to launch later this year.
Roberts said the new-season launch date for the streaming service is expected later this month.
He added that the company will “continue to invest” in Xfinema, a new service it is testing that will offer the same quality and features as Xfin, which will debut later this fall.
It was not immediately clear what the effects were of the hurricane on Comcast’s streaming services.
XfinityTV, a streaming service that includes channels like MTV, Comedy Central and Adult Swim, will remain live in the United States and Canada as of Monday.
Hulu will continue to offer its streaming service through its U.S. and Canada subsidiary.
Hulu and Xfine TV, the new streaming service from Hulu, are both part of Comcast’s XFINITY TV business.
In a blog post Monday, Comcast said it will launch Hulu Plus on July 17.
Comcast is trying to launch a streaming-video service in the U.K. as well, as it works to reach consumers on a worldwide basis.
