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, alongside another brand in the video on demand industry, 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.
Right now the rising demand for these services has made it into a high selling point for many service providers to include it bundled in. With more and more networks rising up after Netflix’s success story, being able to access the wider variety has become imperative for many consumers. This deal between Netflix and Comcast is one step to making that easier for all viewers to see their favorite content with ease. Stay tuned for more information regarding this partnership.
