Comcast Launches YouTube Across X1 Cable Set-Tops Nationwide
by Todd Spangler
Comcast is now offering billions of YouTube videos on its Xfinity X1
system â slotting the internet videos into the same menu as other cable
TV programming, as well as Netflix.
The cable operator is launching YouTube on X1 across its U.S. footprint,
providing access to YouTube videos using the X1 voice-enabled remote.
The YouTube app is located in the âAppsâ and âNetworksâ sections of the
X1 guide, and Comcast also will feature YouTube content through the
Xfinity on Demand VOD section.
Don't forget Youtube and Netflix usage still adds to your monthly
bandwidth usage even when played through your Xfinity set-top.
What bandwidth usage? I get Comcast and don't know what you mean.
Download limits on the Internet portion of the service?
Yes. Comcast has implemented a monthly bandwidth usage in most of
their coverage area now on Internet usage. Go over the limit
(currently 1TB) and you get charged an overage fee. Anim8rfsk can tell
you how that can add up just through Netflix usage. I got to
experience the joy of limited allotment for over a decade as our area
was one of the first to get the limits (started at 250GB then went to
300GB and just recently to 1TB.)
(I assume that's at 4.4 Ghz with 1440 pixels)
Comcast had a 250GB limit nationwide about a decade ago. Around 5 years
ago they dropped it, and started experimenting with new variations in
different locations shortly after that.
Now they have the 1TB limit in 27 states. You can see the list here:
As mentioned elsewhere in the FAQ, 1TB is 600-700 hours of HD video.
That means you would have to stream 20 hours/day to hit the limit. You
have to REALLY LOVE cat videos.
