It 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.
