Comcast's X1 turns 3, but the rollout has been anything but fast

Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) X1 platform may have initially been touted as a "big moment" for the cable MSO when initially debuted three years ago, but the rollout has continued to lag.

The rollout of the X1 platform comes at a time when its bread and butter video service business continues to erode as more users flock to OTT video players like Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), Hulu and others. During the second quarter of 2015, cable lost 625,000 subscribers, the biggest quarterly loss ever reported for the sector, according to SNL Kagan.
