Comcast Subs Can Now Access Netflix
By Phillip Swann

Washington, D.C. (September 19, 2016) - Comcast today is allowing video subscribers to access Netflix on their X1 set-tops, Engadget writes.

The partnership, which was first announced last July, could help Netflix boost its subscription totals, albeit probably not by much. Most Americans can already access the streaming service in a variety of ways including computers, Smart TVs, mobiles, and streaming set-tops such as Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

However, Comcast subscribers who do not actively use such Internet devices now have a more familiar and simple way to watch Netflix.

Engadget notes that the Netflix app can be found in the X1's 'Comcast Labs' section of their on-screen menus. Once subscribers opt-in, the Netflix app will appear as part of their regular menu selections.

The web site writes that the app will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks so it may be awhile before you see it on your particular X1 set-top.
