Netflix Coming to Comcast X1 Later This Year
If you cannot defeat them, join them. It looks like this is what the now-former competitors Comcast and Netflix are stating in their announcement today that the streaming service will arrive on Comcast X1 consoles in the near future.
Comcast and Netflix have issued a statement to Recode confirming that they have reached an agreement and plan to include Netflix on the X1 cable platform . The deal is similar to deals that Netflix has with other, smaller cable TV providers in the US, where customers will be able to log into their Netflix accounts using a dedicated app and stream directly from the cable box. Comcast, which has long been at odds with Netflix , believes the deal will make customers happier by offering easy access to the service most people need. It’s also a way to prove that their X1 platform is more than a fancy cable box with a sleek interface. For Netflix, the deal is likely to attract more subscribers, which is what they want as subscriber growth stalled last year . Expect this service to be available on Comcast X1 consoles later this year. If you want to know more, please follow the link below.
