Comcast Corp, the owner of the NBC TV network, has reached an agreement with Netflix Inc to stream Netflix content through its X1 set-top box, the companies said.
The service will be available to customers later this year.
No further details were disclosed.
Comcast has been adding features to its X1 service in a bid to retain pay-TV subscribers, who have increasingly gravitated to online video offerings from companies like Netflix and Hulu.
Netflix’s shares were up 2.7 percent at $99.18 after technology website Re/code first reported the deal. Comcast’s shares were down 0.6 percent at $64.88.
