Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announced the availability of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) UltraHD 4K programming on its cloud-based Xfinity X1 video platform. Xfinity customers with 4K-capable X1 devices can now access the Netflix' entire UltraHD catalog alongside the live, on demand, DVR and web programming included with their Xfinity TV subscription.

"We remain focused on providing our customers high-quality entertainment experiences across platforms, which includes easy access to the best 4K programming," said Brynn Lev, vice president, Editorial and Programming, Content Strategy and Operations, Comcast Cable. "We are thrilled to make the popular Netflix catalog of 4K programming available to X1 customers and will continue to rapidly expand the UHD programming choices available on the platform."

Netflix recommends an Internet connection speed of at least 25 Mbps to stream 4K titles, and Xfinity X1 customers will need the XG1v4 set top box. If a movie or TV show is available in 4K, the default playback will be in 4K. Future phases of 4K content on X1 will include search and discovery with the voice remote, editorialized collections within Xfinity On Demand and the option to choose a playback method (4K, HD, etc.) by program.
