SHARE Comcast launches fall TV feature Tuesday to give customers jump on upcoming season

Comcast is helping its subscribers gear up for the new TV season with a feature launching Tuesday.

A “Fall TV Fest” folder is scheduled to go live on Xfinity On Demand starting tomorrow. When subscribers launch it, they’ll find early premiere episodes and sneak peeks for the 50-some new shows launching in the coming weeks.

The pay-TV service will offer several weeks of early access to the pilots for several new shows, including NBC’s “Ironside” (premieres Oct. 2, available beginning Tuesday), CBS’ “We Are Men” (premieres Sept. 30, available beginning Sept. 16) and “Trophy Wife” on ABC (premieres Sept. 24, available beginning Tuesday).

Other pilots that will be available before their official premiere dates: “Welcome to the Family,” (NBC), “My Big Fat Revenge” (Oxygen), “Knife Fight” (Esquire), “Brew Dogs” (Esquire), “The Getaway” (Esquire), “America Ninja Warrior” (Esquire) and “Masters of Sex” (Showtime).

The season premiere of Fox’s “The Mindy Project” will be shown early. Customers can catch up with the most recent season of that show, as well as 150 other returning programs (“Homeland,” “Chicago Fire”), through video-on-demand to help bring them up to speed when the new seasons begin.
