Netflix will be available on Comcast cable box ‘next week’
NEW YORK -- Cable boxes may not be going away just yet, but there is a consolation prize. Netflix will officially launch on Comcast's Xfinity X1 set-top boxes next week, making it easier for these cable subscribers to browse Netflix shows and films along with other TV programming. Comcast and Netflix confirmed the launch timing on Friday. The two companies first announced an agreement to bring Netflix to cable boxes in July.
