current maximum is mpeg4 all linear channels 720p60. Local channels in same as broadcast format either 720p or 1080i. You can try the service for up to 30 days (verify at time of order) and cancel if you do not want to continue service.

Re: XI System for 4K UHD

I have a Sony UHD 4K TV, but it sounds like there is still only a limited number of channels that Xfinity broadcasts in UHD 4K.  Is that right?  From what Xfinity says, Netflix is available on UHD 4K.  But if that is the only one, I will wait until more channels broadcast in the 4 K HD format.

based on every Official Employee post, Comcast does not supply any 4k or UHD channels/on-demand. Even Netflix App is not 4k nor UHD. The xg1v4 has 4k output as an output option for resolution.
