Cable television and Internet company Comcast is getting a new name for its services. The company itself isn't going anywhere, but it will now be offering its products under the "Xfinity" label.

The change is part of a rebranding move in 11 metropolitan areas, including Chicago.

Comcast says the new brand will promise faster Internet speeds, new HD channels, more foreign language channels, and the ability to watch shows online.

More cities will be added later in the year.
