Comcast and Netflix will officially launch its partnership next week as Xfinity customers begin receiving Netflix on their X1 cable TV boxes.
Hastings calls the X1 voice remote "magic. I just push the voice button and say, 'Netflix' and ... it's on the screen. Fundamentally, we are a channel like HBO. We have got amazing content. So, from the consumer’s perspective, we ought to be integrated."
Essentially, the mash up is an improved video on-demand purchase. From a cloud DVR that stores content to smart voice remote, to an integrated bill service for new users, Comcast customers can expect to stream Netflix next Friday. From The Crown and House of Cards to movies such as The Ivory Game, the future of television and entertainment is upon us. For more information, visit here.
