About Comcast in MN
The name XFINITY may not be familiar to some consumers in Minnesota. Comcast, however, is widely recognizable. Comcast is the largest cable TV provider in the country, with more than 20 million customers subscribing to video service.
The company re-branded its residential services under the XFINITY brand in 2010, but the corporate name Comcast remains unchanged. Comcast started in the 1960s with a small local cable system in Tupelo, Mississippi, and grew to become one of the cable TV industry's dominant players.
In February 2014, Comcast reached an agreement to merge with Time Warner Cable.
