Is HBO on its way out of the bundling constraints of Comcast?

If you have Comcast and you want HBO, chances are you have to pay for a lot of other things that you don’t want. Comcast may be singing a different tune, now, as they take their prize fighter into the ring against Netflix.

Love HBO, but hate paying for expensive cable bundles? Comcast’s got a deal for you: The cable provider just started to promote a new offering dubbed “Internet Plus” that consists of internet access, HBO and local TV channels for $40 a month.

The package is specifically geared towards users accustomed to streaming, and also includes access to Comcast’s Streampix offering. Broadband Reports first noted Thursday that such an offering might be in the works, but a quick Google search revealed that Comcast has already started to market Internet Plus to prospective customers.
