4K streaming only?

Few months ago I swapped out my box for a 4k capable one, since I had purchased a 4k UHD TV.  Streaming Netfliz, Amazon Prime, YouTube etc, there's plenty of labeled 4K content.

Question is, does Comcast broadcast any channeles in 4K UHD? Everything I've found says HD but not 4K. Asking in part because Wonder Woman 1984 is touted as being 4K, but on HBO Max I searched for 4k content and nada, plus nothing I could find was labeled 4K. Is there a technical limitation that explains why I can't find any broadcast in anything but HD?

I'm debating streaming the move from the app on my PS5 for 4k

There isn’t much, look here

You won’t find Wonder Woman, it isn’t released yet.

The WW1984 premier is tomorrow on HBO Max. Using HBO Max through my cable box, will it be in 4k? Or do I have to stream from PS5 or other 4k device?

And aside from that, why doesn't Comcast broadcast content in 4K for regular channels/networks? 4k (and better) video cameras are pretty much the standard these days

You’ll have to wait until it’s released to see what HBO is offering, it’s their call. The article is 3 weeks old and doesn’t include X1 boxes. Any content would have to be sent from networks

HBO has been saying it would be in 4K since they announced they'd be premeiring the movie. It won't be 4K through a playstation or XBox, but I just got confirmation it WILL be 4K through 4k compatable Comcast cable boxes. This might be HBO's first 4k telecast
