Comcast is plugging the Walt Disney Co.’s Disney Plus and ESPN Plus into its X1 cable TV and Flex broadband-streaming platforms — part of the operator’s ongoing strategy to become the one-stop hub for all video entertainment. So, great news if you’re a Comcast Xfinity user who’s been wondering when you might be able to access Disney+ through your cable TV box!
Comcast is starting the rollout of Disney Plus on X1 and Flex customers. They promise their nationwide customer base will have access to the subscription streamer “in the coming days.”
In the last few years, Comcast Xfinity has been striking deals with streamers in order to make the cable service a veritable one-stop hub for all forms of entertainment. However the partnership should be mutually beneficial. Especially since the wide berth of Comcast cable TV users (18.99M residential video users; 28.35M broadband subs) now have that much more incentive to add a Disney+ subscription.
