Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) reportedly making a video game streaming deal with Comcast

Posted May 3, 2014

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) is reportedly making a deal with Comcast that would allow the game developer to stream games through the cable service network, according to Reuters. EA has been testing the service for over two years now. The games would be streamed through X1 – Comcast’s operating system that supports voice commands and Internet applications. The EA deal is supposed to make purchasing a video game through the service as ?easy as ordering a movie on pay-per-view.? Time Warner Cable and Comcast are expected to merge after approval by the Federal Trade Commission. This would give EA access to even more than Comcast’s 22 million users.
