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.

Per your direction on this board I am requesting that you send me the X1GV4 with the Self-Install Kit.

We have Samsung 740 SUHD TV, already 4k capable.

In my case, I just called the Comcast support number and asked to have one shipped to my house. I received it the following day. I then replaced my previous DVR and took it back to the local Comcast store to have it taken off my account.

I thought this thread was in reference to technical questions related to the Xfinity XG1v4 DVR, NOT how to obtain one.  Everyone needs to read through this thread and stop asking the same question over and over. 

 

Again, for folks that are wanting one of these 4k DVR's a simple search through this thread or a phone call or chat with Comcast will give you the info you are looking for.  I obtained mine through a chat session and received it within 3 days of the order.

Hi Enqiquezl -- Yes, you can swap your current X1 boxes for 4K capable boxes. Please keep in mind that at this time we are only offering 4K DVR units. If you would like to do this then please send me a PM with your name, full service address, and either phone number or account number for authentication. I will also need to know now many boxes you're needing to swap.
