NETFLIX: Network and US Cable Providers With Possible PlanIt may be early to say what will happen, but Comcast and other pay TV providers are talking about making Netflix an option on set-top boxes, for 2014.

Netflix, last month, put their name on the dotted line with the UK’s Virgin Media as to allow them to integrate a streaming service via Virgin’s service through TiVo set-top boxes.

For US pay TV providers something similar to the UK deal would be a first, and give US consumers even more devices from which to access Netflix.

A standing invitation to US cable operators to add Netflix for two years has been in the works, as Netflix’s chief financial officer – David Wells – told Bloomberg during an investor conference September 2013.
