Quality Entertainment with Xfinity TV in 4K UHD and HDR

One of the very first things that you will get to enjoy with Xfinity TV is the top-notch picture quality and resolution you get with Xfinity TV. And, Xfinity makes that entertainment dream come true with its 4K technology getting you ultra-high definition (UHD) and high dynamic range (HDR).

Why do these characteristics matter so much, you ask? Well, let us tell you exactly that. Gone are the days of grainy shows and pixelated movies, whatever we watch today should be in the clearest quality picture possible. There is no point in watching something unless you can feel every single thing that is happening on the screen.

The 4K technology makes your picture a lot clearer, and much more vivid with the 3840 x 2160 resolution. If that is not good enough for you, then the HDR gives you greater color depth, just enhancing the reality of all that runs across your screen. It is truly an experience.

For this 4K UHD and HDR to work out, however, you need to have a clear insight into the prerequisites. Not only do you need a compatible Xfinity TV Box, but also a compatible 4K TV. To check whether or not your TV supports 4K picture quality, you would have to go through your TV manual.

Let’s take a look at some of the Xfinity TV boxes compatible with the 4K resolution.

 

Xfinity 4K Compatible TV Boxes


There are certain Xfinity TV box types and models that support 4K UHD and HDR. These are given as follows so you know what to get when you purchase the service:

  • Xfinity X1 XG1v4 TV Box (AX014ANM, AX014ANC)
  • Xi6 TV Box (AX061AEI, TX061AEI)
  • Xi6 Flex

You can learn the Xfinity TV Box model number by visiting the About in the X1 settings or checking the label at the bottom of your TV box. Since these boxes are not available to order online, you can always request them with the Xfinity Getting Started kit and have them delivered to your house directly.

When you set up your X1 TV Box, it will automatically be in the highest output resolution setting that your TV supports, in most cases 4K. Otherwise, you can set it manually by going into the settings and selecting the option yourself. If a TV show or movie is available in 4K when you start watching, the X1 is going to give you a notification on the top of your screen to help you watch it in that resolution.

Live events cannot be recorded in 4K, but you can record them on the HD channel. However, any on-demand movies or TV shows are usually available in 4K if you have a compatible TV box or Flex device.

 

X1 and Flex Apps with 4K Content

The X1 or Xfinity Flex for internet-only users offers a variety of apps that feature 4K content. Whether it is thrillers, documentaries, dramas, or anything that you really want to enjoy in vivid detail, you can do so with the Xfinity X1 or Flex, although the latter is typically not a part of the Xfinity TV service.

Even so, some of the apps on X1/Flex that have a sizeable collection of 4K content include:

  • Apple TV+
  • HBO Max
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • Netflix
  • YouTube
  • Disney+
  • Vudu
