Per Reuters, Comcast may soon allow customers using its X1 cable box system with apps to buy games from Electronic Arts Inc through their televisions:

After two years of testing, Comcast and EA, are close to reaching an agreement to stream video games such as “FIFA” and “Madden,” into the living rooms of some of Comcast’s more-than 22 million customers across the United States, said the sources, who declined to speak publicly before a deal had been struck.

Considering Comcast is one of the few to institute data caps (while denying they have data caps), it will be interesting to see if this type of action is used against someone’s data limit.

300GB’s can quickly evaporate with a few downloadable games and some Netflix streaming.
