Comcast: We have 21 million broadband subscribers (but Netflix “not really a high priority”)

Today Comcast announced that it added just under 300,000 new broadband customers during its first quarter ending September 30, 2013, meaning that it can now point to a cool 20.283 million subscribers. In 2013 alone, Comcast has added almost one million broadband subscribers and brought in around $7.7 billion in revenue.

Netflix, however, will not be coming to Comcast STBs anytime particularly soon, with Comcast Cable CEO Neil Smit today announcing that the idea (reported in the Wall Street Journal earlier this month) is “not really a high priority for us… We have nothing to report on the Netflix front.”
