Comcast is rolling out a new service to its cable subscribers with broadband Internet, according to a report by CNN.
The move comes as Comcast’s shares fall, and as the cable industry continues to battle the arrival of the next generation of Internet-connected devices.
Comcast will offer Internet-based email and webmail services that are powered by a custom software, said the CNN report.
The company will offer those services to customers with a Comcast account and the ability to set up a payment plan with a third-party provider.
Customers will also be able to download software from Comcast’s website to access those services.
The service will be available for subscribers who have a Comcast subscription, but won’t be available to customers who don’t have a cable or satellite subscription.
Comcast is offering the service for $45 per month with two months free.
Comcast said the service will provide a better experience for its customers, and will enable them to communicate with their friends and family across Comcast’s broadband network.
The CNN report also said Comcast is testing a “cloud” offering that would let customers download content on their computers to a personal cloud server, as well as the ability for customers to access the company’s web service for free.
CNN’s Michael Isikoff and CNN’s David McNew contributed to this report.
