I'm glad to hear that Comcast is doing something to provide 4K/HDR Rio Olympics coverage but it is still disappointing to know is not available to be seen on any 4K UHD tv. I'm in the market for a new 4K tv that has HDR. I'd like to go with Vizio but will likely rule it out because there's no Xfinity UHD Sampler App available. And I get it that's it's a business decision between a content provider and tv manufacturers but it still upsetting, especially since Comcast stated they were launching a device (i.e. xi5) to coincide with the Olympics. The xi5 would have been compatible with more 4K/HDR tvs than tvs that have access to the Xfinity UHD Sampler App. The olympics is a popular sporting even watched by millions it would have been a great opportunity to showcase new technology like 4K/HDR to a lot of people instead of small subset. Missed opportunity. P.S. Xfinity UHD Sampler App updated w/ Rio Olympics content. I just hope HDR content isn't the only content available throughout the event.

I totally agree. It makes no sense that Comcast subscribers potentially will not be able to view the Rio Olympics in 4K/HDR. It's about two weeks away and no xi5. It's especially sad when NBCUniversal is part of Comcast and it is offering 4K/HDR telecast/vod to its competitors (i.e. AT&T/DIRECTV). Why not to its customers? Frustrating.
