Netflix is adding 4K streaming to Comcast’s set-top box, the Xfinity X1. Now, Xfinity X1 users who have a 4K-capable device and a Netflix premium subscription can watch Netflix in 4K. Before the announcement, Netflix was already available for 4K streaming on most devices, including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast Ultra, Roku, Sony TV, and more.
The announcement comes at a curious time for Netflix, just as Stranger Things season 2 arrives and after the company pulls back on making further seasons of House of Cards. This October, Netflix also hiked prices for its premium plan from $11.99 a month to $13.99 a month.
