X1 4k companion box?

When will be be able to get/use a 4k companion box? I don't want to pay $19.95 per box for getting a main dvr 4k to my other three tv's. 

 

I've tested (not scienctific) but clearly the 4k main dvr boxes are superior at the image quality than the mini companion HD boxes.

Your market may vary but I’m a tech and we’ve had the Xi6 for a few weeks. Check your local Xfinity store but presently, it’s tech install only

Do the xi6 wireless 4K boxes still require our modem?

the Xi6 communicates with your other X1 equipment via MoCA over etherenet/IP using the Comcast supplied modem/gateway.

One more question. Do the xfi pods amplify the signal for our wireless boxes?

The pods help but they don’t amplify the Wi-Fi, they extend the network
