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 — 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 “Apps” and “Networks” sections of the X1 guide, and Comcast also will feature YouTube content through the Xfinity on Demand VOD section.

People read YouTube comments?

Side note: My Sony TV dropped support for YouTube several years ago,
but when they had it it was almost useless for searching anything. Will
an X1 Cable box's remote control be any better? If not, then this will
end up just being a YouTube link to the currently most trending few
dozen videos.

The Plasma YouTube ad was always useless (maybe if I hooked up a
keyboard) except for it's 'mirror' function where you control The
YouTube on the computer and it plays on The Plasma.

I just hook up my TV as an external laptop monitor if I want to do
something like that. I haven't done it for YouTube, but it works great
for catching up on the cable network shows that are available on the
various network websites.

Unfortunately, they haven't worked for me since YouTube reformatted
itself a few days ago. However, MacX YouTube Downloader still works
just fine. You also get to choose between whatever formats the video
is in. (720p is more than adequate.)

Like DT, I download the video (as an .mp4) and copy the file to a thumb
drive. I can plug the drive into the big Sony directly. I just did
that with the PETER PAN GOES WRONG show I mentioned in a WDYW thread.

I just saw a new shelter pet public service commercial, this one for a
cat. Turns out the legendary YouTube Keyboard Cat was a shelter animal
and his owner also uses him to pose for paintings.

On the shelter pet commercial with a dog, I've never seen a dog with its
tongue hanging out sideways all the time while its mouth is closed like
that.

My cat doesn't have a fur coat. But she does have a respectable
Republican cloth coat. And I always tell her that she'd look good in
anything.

There's plenty of nudity on Youtube. Even plenty of sex on there
though it tends to be a bit hidden (normally under non-English names

I dunno -

is pretty readily available. (I doubt few will click this but it's the
sex scene from the Games of Thrones season finale that many here have
seen - I won't say between who for the rare readers who care and have
not yet seen the finale))

Really? That seems like a major stumbling block. Why wouldn't these

I agree. I thought it would be part of the normal set top box usage
like On-Demand back when they started offering Netflix. After looking
into it I saw that all Netflix usage shows up as Internet usage so I'm
assuming Youtube will be the same.

What makes it so odd is that Netflix is willing to put cache servers
into Comcast's plants so when a Comcast customer watches a Netflix
movie it seldom has to hit the public Internets (which was one of the
main reasons Comcast said it needed to count Netflix usage as Internet
usage.)

Sounds like Comcast is just trying to screw their customers out of more
money even though it isn't costing Comcast anything to deliver the
Netflix content.

Maybe Comcast figures that they are making up for lost ad revenue due to
people watching more Netflix?

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 — 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 “Apps” and “Networks” 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.)

Big fee, too, at least on The Cox. It's not at the same rate you're
paying for the first TB, it's way way way way *way* more.

I would love to see a breakdown; I have *no* idea what percentage The

speedtest, which downloads and uploads files, got stuck 'on' and ran
continuously in the background for days or weeks ...

$10 for every 50GB. I think Cox copied the rates from Comcast so you
are getting charged the same amount.

$10 for every 50GB. I think Cox copied the rates from Comcast so you

So $200 for the second terabyte. The cost of the first terabyte isn't
broken out, but all plans include a terabyte now, so this is *way* more.

Computers on speed could mean either:
A) ... operating at the advertized gigahertz.
B) ... operating under the influence of a potent central nervous system stimulant also called 'amphetamine'.

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:

https://www.xfinity.com/support/internet/data-usage-find-area/

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.
