Xfinity won't display 4K UHD

I have a 4K tv with the proper Xfinity 4K box (xg1v4).

I have set the inputs on the tv to turn ON "UHD".  

But for some reason, when I try to watch a 4K UHD movie, tv show or whatever on Xfinity, it will only show in regular 4K.  BUT, if I go to Netflix or Roku or some other input, the UHD works!

Can anyone explain why shows on Xfinity won't uptick to UHD if the show is shot in that format?

Thank you!
