Comcast bringing live TV to the iPad

Comcast just unveiled a new plan to bring live TV to the iPad, allowing you to watch TV as its airing on the tablet rather than just on-demand or downloaded video.

The live TV will be through Comcast's Xfinity iPad App, and will obviously require a Comcast account. They'll be the first cable provider to offer such a service, but if it catches on it's unlikely to be the last. Hell, it would even allow people to have a cable subscription without a TV, although I doubt too many people would jump on that right away.

What do you think? Would you be excited to watch live TV on a tablet?
