(Reuters) - ViacomCBS Inc and Comcast Corp renewed their content carriage deal on Wednesday, which would allow Comcast to continue retransmission of 23 CBS-owned television channels.

The deal will also include distribution of channels such as Showtime and CBS Sports Network, to users of Comcast’s internet service Xfinity.

CBS’s on-demand video service CBS All Access will be available on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Flex platforms later in the year, the statement said.
