Comcast: We're Not Prioritizing Xbox Video

In a Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) blog post, EVP and CTO Tony Werner said the MSO is not prioritizing its own Xfinity content on Xboxes. Werner said the MSO treats the Xbox as just another set-top box.

"It's really important to us that we make crystal clear that, in contrast to some other providers, we are not prioritizing our transmission of Xfinity TV content to the Xbox (as some have speculated)," Werner wrote. "While DSCP markings can be used to assign traffic different priority levels, that is not their only application -- and that is not what they are being used for here."
