All great Q's KK_in_CT
The bad thing is that Comcast has left it's user base to find and uncover the answers instead of providing a clear offering. I read earlier (in this thread i believe) that the X1 version of netflix 4k is not entirelly comparible to the netflix native app. if true, then the setboxes may actually have technical limitations.
I use and prefer IPTV, fubotv to be exact, and was just about follow through with direct tv until I saw layer3 will get the job done.

I am adding my post here so minimally companies hear that their solutions are not customer centric. In other words,
"I can't wait to spend lots of money on a modern TV and monthly subscription service so I watch a game, that I've waited 4 years for, 24 hrs after it happened and everyone is talking about it"
~said by no one, ever.
I get that futbol is not important to many americans but a once-in-four-year event needs options. I searched throughout and options I found to watch the games in 4k are constraint filled.
DirectTV - my option (drilling holes and adding an unsightly dish to my house that was already wired for comcast)
Dishnetwork - no word from them with the tourney 2 days way.
BBC(stream) - you'll have to change region your TV (some samsung TVs have issues with iPlayer), get a VPN with enough bandwidth, get one of the slots for the stream as BBC will be limited slots to stream.
Fox Sports go (Stream) - Buy a new specific model hisense 4k because of their streaming deal with Fox. Shutting out the majority of us that have Samsung/LG/Sony Televisions.
Xfinity (VOD) - Watch it 1 day after it has happened. This is almost as bad as not even showing them.
