Netflix has today announced that it will finally be available in the US on three cable companies : Atlantic Broadband, Grande Communications and RCN.
The new Netflix cable service will be available to subscribers through their TiVo DVR from April 28, 2014, but don’t forget you will also require a Netflix subscription on top of your already existing TiVo one.
“The Netflix App will be fully integrated into the award-winning TiVo service distributed by the providers. Atlantic Broadband, Grande Communications and RCN customers who subscribe to Netflix will be able to access Netflix in addition to Live TV, On Demand shows and other web content through one single device.
The partnership eliminates the complexity of multiple boxes, remote controls, input ports and cables and delivers the Netflix experience to the coveted “biggest screen in the home,” creating a home-viewing experience that is both simple and enjoyable. Customers can use their TiVo DVR to easily search, browse and binge on a rich selection of commercial-free TV shows and movies that Netflix offers, including highly acclaimed original series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. “
Netflix also announced earlier this month that it is considering raising the monthly subscription charge by an additional $1 to $2. Current subscribers to Netflix will be grandfathered for a “generous” time period. So you won’t notice any change to the $7.99 per month that you are currently paying in the mean time.
