Comcast Corp's (CMCSA.O) pay television subscribers will be able to stream movies and TV shows from Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) through the cable operator's X1 set-top box later this year, the companies said on Tuesday.
The deal will make it easier for Comcast customers to access Netflix programming on their television sets because they won't have to switch to a streaming device like an Apple TV or Roku box.
