Comcast in Q2 beat analysts' projections by tallying a 28.6% year-over-year jump in profit to $1.7 billion, on sales of $16.3 billion, a 7% increase. The cable giant's bottom line was boosted by the addition of 187,000 broadband subscribers and growth in business services, while the loss of video customers continued to slow. Comcast also saw good results from NBCUniversal in its first quarter of full ownership of the unit.
