Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box Availability

Called Xfinity and asked about the availability of XG1v4 cable boxes at my location (WA state), which has the capability to stream 4k content through Netflix.  Was assured, with repeated confirmations, that they were available to the local service store, would just have to bring in my existing cable box and exchange it.  Bought a nice LG OLED TV, upgraded my Netflix account to receive Ultra HD, and took my box down to the local service center for exchange, per customer service direction.  You can probably guess what happened next - "sorry, we don't have any 4k boxes, don't know when we will".  Anyone else been misled by the Xfinity garbage customer service?  Went online to see what lies they convey on their website regarding this matter, and found this:  https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/uhd-4k-faqs/   More misleading BS.  Wanted to warn anyone else potentially in the same situation as myself not to believe anything you are told or read about the availability of XG1v4 boxes; go to your service center first to confirm.

Hello,

 

I'd like to replace my existing DVR with the XG1v4 since I have a 4K TV now.  I tried going through chat feature but it won't connect me to a live person. What is the exact proper procedural way to request one without getting lambasted, please?

 

Thank you.

I would also like to upgrade to an XG1v4 box.  I currently have a Pace XG1, and the fan is on constantly - even when the device is on standby.

Hi capitals2018. I can help with placing an order for an XG1v4. The process is typically you create a post with your request (like this one). That post creates a ticket in out internal system. Then a member of our team will work your ticket (in order of received) and will reach out to you to ask you to send a private message.

 

I received and replied to your private message. Let's continue our conversation via PM. Thanks!

The XG1v4 is not wireless. The Xi6 is wireless.

I got rid of the Xi6 recently and just learned of 4K boxes recently. The Xi pixelated too much.

The XG1v4 is connected via coax.

I would like to swap my X1 DVR for a XG1v4 if possible? I just bought a 4k TV.

 

Thanks!

do you have an xfinity store near you? the model is an xg1v4 and is much smaller and has only an LED in the middle front (no clock). cable channels are still in 720p format but some internet apps do offer 4k.

I just received a DVR from a local store for new TV service yesterday, however after self-installing I realized I was not given a 4k capable box. I would like to upgrade to the XG1v4 Box.
