Launched by Comcast at January 2008’s CES, Fancast serves as both a media guide for TV shows and movies, as well as a destination to watch full length and preview clips of professional content. Fancast has partnered with Hulu to offer content from NBC, Fox, CBS, MTV, and BET.
If Fancast doesn’t stream the full-length content users are looking for, it will help them look for that content on television, on DVD, in theaters, or elsewhere on the web - including iTunes, Amazon, Blockbuster, or Netflix. Users can also check out information about casts and crews, review information about past episodes, and look at related photos.
Fancast has also promised users the ability to control their DVR online so they can schedule recordings of shows when they are away from home. Furthermore, the service will recommend shows coming up on television that it thinks you might like to see.
