Comcast has integrated YouTube’s 4K catalog into its X1 video platform.
X1 users can now speak into their voice remotes to access the add-supported platform’s collection of movies, nature videos and video game trailers in 4K resolution. Comcast previously integrated 4K content from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video into X1.
To access YouTube’s 4K content, Comcast subscribers need compatible X1 CPE and a 4K-capable television.
Comcast’s announcement comes on the heels of its integration of Amazon Prime Video—along with its associated 4K catalog—earlier this month.
Comcast first integrated YouTube into its X1 portfolio of services in September 2017. The cable operator says “YouTube” is among the most popular commands for its voice remote.
