Comcast Announces Addition of YouTube to Video Services
New England Council member Comcast Corp. recently announced it will be adding YouTube to its video services through its X1 interface.
Comcast’s expanded video services will allow customers to search for YouTube content on the same X1 interface as on-demand movies and TV shows. YouTube’s paid service, YouTube Red, will also be available to subscribers for both services on the X1 system. Comcast says 50% of its subscribers currently have the X1 box system installed and will be able to use the new service.
“I think that is sort of our vision of how to keep innovating,” said Comcast CEO Brian Roberts. “We’ll keep being the aggregator of aggregators.”
The New England Council congratulates Comcast on the expanded services the company can soon begin providing customers. Read more in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
