4k Programming

I just got a new 4k box.  I adjusted the settings to UHD 4k.  I think Xfinity > Settings > 4k setting (highest 4k setting)

 

1) Will Xfinity Auto tune to 4k if its being broadcasted live?

2) Do i have to go to the channels in 1000s to access 4k programming?

3) Can you access live 4k programming via Xfinity stream?

Re: 4k Programming

1. Yes if that’s what the box is set for
2. Not necessarily, the 1000’s are considered neighborhood channels, duplicates of HD channels in a different grouping
3 On the xfinity app menu, search for '4K(space) do you find a listing?

Re: 4k Programming

Thank you Andrew.  I will test this out Thursday Night (Thursday Night Football) is in 4k.  I will see if Xfinity Stream has a 4k streaming feed.  I know currently the FOX Sports App streams via 4k.

Re: 4k Programming

What is the point of the channels in the 1000s?  I was told that was the 4k version of the channel.  This isn't true?
