Flash Retirement Date

Comcast,

 

Any timeline to switch off of Adobe Flash?    Adobe will be retiring it in 2020 for everyone, but it would be nice if you would join the movement earlier like everyone else to HTML5......

currently the flash  component that verifies HDCP security is the part that is used and approved by the providers. It has been said many times in other threads that when Comcast is ready to move to another HDCP verification it will be announced (and not before).

I understand why they are currently using it, but fact is that Flash is dying, and will soon be pulled out of many browsers by default,  thus having a solution sooner would be better!

Sounds like it's being removed to me.

Comcast will be switching by the time the drop dead date comes for Flash in 2020.
