Netflix is reportedly in talks to make its service available on US pay-TV platforms

Netflix-520x199Netflix is holding discussions with several US pay-TV providers such as Comcast and Suddenlink Communications, as it seeks to make its on-demand streaming service available as an app on set-top boxes, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Currently, US cable TV customers who wish to stream Netflix on their TV sets must do so either via Internet-connected TVs or a different TV-input to get a Netflix signal from other connected devices. If the deal goes through, it will be a lot more convenient for viewers to access the Netflix app via their respective pay-TV platforms.
