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 could not figure out how to send a message directly to ComcastChe, so I hope this reaches you.

I would like to receive a XG1v4 cable box delivered in the mail.

If this is the wrong place to send this request, please advise.

 

Thank you,

I was able to get a XG1v4 at my local Comcast store on Monday, The bad news was it would not authenticate on my account and apparently was defective. When I called tech support they told me to swap it out for another unit but also (thankfully) scheduled a service call for the next day.

When I went to swap it out at the store they did not have another one and told me they only got four in that day. 

 

Tuesday when the tech arrived he did have another one on his truck, swapped it out and all is well.

 

So far I am happy with the picture quality and features of the unit. I have not had X1 service before, only cablecard and TiVO.

I'm also posting hoping to get a 4k compatible X1 box.  If I understand correctly, once I've posted, I'll be able to PM ComcastChe to initiate the next steps.

 

Thanks for helping!
