Netflix, the popular online video service, could soon be available through your cable box.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the company is in talks with several US cable providers including Comcast to offer its service through an app on their set top boxes.

This deal would be first of its kind with a US cable provider.

The talks are said to be in the early stages and no deal is imminent.
