Netflix comes to Comcast X1 boxes next week

Comcast and Netflix are announcing that the latter’s streaming service will be fully available on the former’s X1 boxes from next week. If you have a Comcast X1 and a Netflix subscription, you’ll be able to watch original series like Stranger Things and House of Cards without new equipment. As Netflix’s Reed Hastings says, users can now “seamlessly move between the Netflix app and their cable service.”

The product has been in beta since September, where users could opt-in to trial the most unlikely of team-ups between cable and streaming media. Comcast has worked surprisingly hard to ensure that the Netflix app is compatible with the X1, ensuring that its voice remote and universal search both work in the app. If you’re not already a Netflix customer, you’ll also be able to sign up to the service and have the charge added to your Comcast bill.
