Comcast Corporation

Attention:  Kathryn A. Zachem, Senior Vice President 
 The Enforcement Bureau is pleased that after several discussions with our office, and 
further negotiations with the relevant third parties, Comcast Corporation has recently completed 
all the steps needed to authenticate its subscribers for access to the HBO Go and WatchESPN TV 
Everywhere services on PlayStation devices.  This action is consistent with Comcast’s asserted 
long-standing commitment to “providing content to consumers where and when they want it, on 
all possible devices, and for those devices to be innovative platforms for new applications,”1 and 
the Company’s assurances that Comcast is “pursuing other innovations to expand further 
consumers’ device options.”2  We applaud any action that will further the goals of enhanced 
competition, programming diversity, consumer choice, and innovation in the marketplace.  This 
letter and its attachment are part of our ongoing dialogue on such matters and we encourage 
Comcast to continue to take steps towards these ends.

      Chief, Enforcement Bureau
