Netflix has signed a deal with Comcast in a big move that will allow web streaming on the latter’s X1 platform.
Netflix n’ Chill just got a little more convenient.
“Comcast and Netflix have reached an agreement to incorporate Netflix into X1, providing seamless access to the great content offered by both companies. We have much work to do before the service will be available to consumers later this year. We’ll provide more details at that time.”
The streaming service already has deals with Apple, Roku and Google’s Chromecast, while the service is also embedded into a variety of smart televisions. This particular deal will likely work similarly, allowing the company to display its app in the set-top cable box so watchers can quickly and conveniently change from cable to streaming. Stay tuned for more information regarding this partnership.
