Starting this week, Netflix streaming service will be available on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 set-top box across the US.

Integrated throughout the platform, X1 customers with Netflix subscriptions will be able to easily browse and access over the internet the extensive online collection of Netflix TV shows and movies alongside the live, on demand, DVR and web programming included with their Xfinity TV subscription.

Netflix content will be fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand, enabling X1 customers to watch past and current seasons of shows.

Current X1 and Netflix customers will be prompted to sign in when accessing the Netflix service on X1 for the first time. New Netflix customers will be able to sign up for a new Netflix membership directly on X1, have the service added to their Comcast bill at the standard rates ($9.99 per month for the most popular two-stream HD plan).

Neil Smit, Chief Executive Officer, Comcast Cable
Netflix has been a terrific partner, and our incredible teams of engineers and designers have come together to create an experience that is not only seamless and intuitive, but also lets viewers search and watch tens of thousands of movies, shows, specials and documentaries with the sound of their voice.

Reed Hastings, Netflix Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
The Netflix integration into the X1 platform means our mutual customers will no longer need to change inputs or juggle remotes. Now they can seamlessly move between the Netflix app and their cable service, enjoying all the TV shows and movies they love without hassle.
