Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) said that it has surpassed the mark of 50 networks that Xfinity TV subscribers can watch through apps on mobile devices both inside and outside the home, following the addition of A&E, Starz, TNT and 15 other networks.

Comcast said Wednesday that its Xfinity TV Go app is also offering live streaming anywhere from Bravo, Cooking Channel, DIY Network, E!, Food Network, HGTV, History, mun2, Oxygen, Sprout, TBS, Travel Channel, truTV and USA Network. The expansion could help Comcast compete with DirecTV (Nasdaq: DTV), Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and other pay-TV rivals who are also beginning to strike carriage deals with programmers that include rights to stream live video to subscribers inside and outside their homes.
