Comcast seems to be growing comfortable with other companies’ streaming video services: Its X1 platform is preparing to offer Sling TV — a skinny bundle service from one of Comcast’s most vigorous competitors: Dish Network — the companies say today.

Earlier this month Comcast agreed to add Netflix to the cloud-based platform, designed to give subscribers similar viewing experiences on their TVs and digital devices. About 45% of Comcast’s 22.4 million video customers are on X1.

No word yet on when the Sling TV app will be available on X1. Comcast says that the pricing will be “consistent with current offers on other platforms,” which typically start at $20 a month.
