Comcast to launch Netflix on X1

Comcast has confirmed that the Netflix service will be available on its X1 devices across the US. Netflix content will be fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand.

“The Netflix integration into the X1 platform means our mutual customers will no longer need to change inputs or juggle remotes,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix Co-Founder and CEO.

By combining the TV libraries of Netflix and Xfinity On Demand, X1 customers can:

  • Launch the Netflix app by simply saying ‘Netflix’ into the X1 voice remote.
  • Browse Netflix content alongside other on demand movies and shows.
  • Search for an actor such as ‘Adam Sandler’ or ‘Kevin Spacey’ and see everything they are in, across both Xfinity and Netflix.
  • Start from the beginning of long-running shows such as The Walking Dead or Scandal – with all prior seasons from Netflix and the current season from Xfinity – available in one place.
