At what point will Comcast/Xfinity offer 4K programming?

Re: x1 4k

We have no idea; Comcast hasn't publicized a schedule for when it will be available.

Re: x1 4k

I would hope they are working towards getting things ready for the possibility of showing some 4K during the Winter Olympics in Japan. Japan will be televising in 4K and 8K for the events.

 

Comcast ran into many problems with the 4K experiment in Rio with only a handful of us getting to see many events shown (replay - not live) in 4K and some also in HDR & 4K using the "Ultra HD Sampler" app. Japan had the equipment.

 

I hope they are involved again this time. They aren't the only ones with problems. Direct TV experiment showing Notre Dame football last fall in 4K ran into problems with their boxes. Few saw the games (check their forum). No 4k football this season but they claim to have some 4K baseball.
