Comcast is acquainting YouTube TV with its Xfinity Flex gadgets, giving clients one more avenue to quitting traditional cable.
YouTube was previously supported on Comcast’s Flex boxes, however the expansion of YouTube TV enables clients to get some 85 or more live TV channels for $65 each month. It’s not the first live TV streaming service to show up on the platform — Sling and Hulu with Live TV were at that point supported. However, it differentiates the streaming options for individuals who would rather not pay Comcast for cable.
Colin Petrie-Norris, senior VP of consumer entertainment at Xfinity, said in an explanation that the expansion of YouTube TV “is another example of how we surround our broadband service with value, giving our customers access to all their preferred content and subscriptions on one device.”
It’s an inquisitive move from a cable provider, however it additionally appears to be legit to remain competitive against other over-the-top boxes like Roku, Fire TV Stick, or Chromecast — all of which support YouTube TV. As of now, Comcast gives the boxes to its Xfinity Internet clients at no extra cost, yet it needs individuals to utilize them. Furthermore that implies supporting famous applications.
YouTube TV is accessible to Flex clients starting today.
