    Comcast to test its YouTube competitor by the end of the year ? Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)

    by Janko Roettgers - June 11, 2014

    -- Comcast is looking to test a new platform for the distribution of online videos through its new X1 cable set-top boxes by the end of the year, the company's SVP of Video Matt Strauss confirmed during an interview at the sidelines of the TV of Tomorrow Show this week.


    Strauss said that the service will be evaluated through what he called "limited tests." He said that it will have some similarities to YouTube, allowing content creators to directly upload their videos to a server. These videos will then become available via a dedicated app running on Comcast's X1 box, which the company has been gradually rolling out across its markets. The Information first published a report about Comcast's plans to experiment with online video in March, citing anonymous sources.
