I'm concerned about Xfinity directing me to streaming services instead of X1 On-Demand. I went to watch a HBO show via Xfinity On-Demand with my Xfinity X1 cable box (not the Xfinity On-Demand App). This does not count toward my monthly data as it is a TV service. However, it now directs me to HBO Max to watch a HBO on-demand show. This issue is HBO Max is a streaming service and counts toward my total monthly data. Is this a change to drive up my streaming data? I should be able to go in the Xfinity X1 service, --> On-Demand --> Network --> HBO and select an on-demand show, but it states I need to watch via HBO Max and gives me the notice this is a 3rd party app. Did Comcast/Xfinity elimiate HBO On-demand.? If that is my only option it is another reason to think about dumping Xfinity and just stream it via the HBO Max on AppleTV which has 4K video and better audio. If this is the case, they should make it clear it counts toward data. If no other option, it's another reason to dump Xfinity- I hang on to be abe to use the Xfinity On-Demand function since it doesn't count against streaming.

Same here — over the past 2 months it will auto switch from 4K (the highest resolution) down to 1080p without notice. It must have done this at least 5-6 times that I know of. I can tell when the video feed has a brownish tint when it should be black. I just watched a world series game that should have been 4K at 1080p. With smaller screen sizes maybe not noticeable but when watching on a high-end 75" 4K TV it is noticeable. So each time I have to go back in and reset the video settings. I shouldn't have to do this. I haven't found a way to lock it in the highest setting, but I would assume once I set it, it should stay set, not having the Xfinity box take over my settings. My Apple TV and Oppo 4K Player all stay at the correct setting why won't the Xfinity box? Very annoying. For what I pay Xfinity I expect close to perfection.
