Re: Does the Xi4 stream Youtube content in 4K?

Currently no. The cable-box is only in testing mode. No 4k or 1080p is available from Comcast on the cable-box yet.

 

You may be able to find the You Tube app on your approved list for your smart tv. Down-load it and you can watch 4K and 1080p offering for free. You will need a high-speed broadband to watch 4K.

Actually the answer would be yes,whenever any of the Internet apps (Netflix, YouTube, Pandora) are used it would count. No 4K yet though.

So would the example of using your Smart TV to access apps on it, if using your home Xfinity internet is involved, it would count.

Wait, the xi4 is still in trial modes? Figured it might be out already.

I do understand theres no Comcast TV 4K content yet, but thought maybe Netflix & Youtube would stream in 4K on the xi4.

 

My vizio youtube app doesnt stream in 4k. My vizio Netflix app does though. Pretty upset when i had to research further after my purchase and find that out. Its a 2015 Vizio 4k. I think all the newer ones do have youtube in 4k.

Are you referring to Xi5 or XG1V4, there's no such thing as Xi4

I thought it was like this -

 

xi5 - HDR

xi4 - 4K

 

So whats the exact model that will be 4K, and when will it be available?

The XG1V4 is out in some markets but there's no 4K content available yet.

Since Netflix/Youtube has 4K content already available, and the XG1V4 has both of those apps, why won't it currently allow 4K?
