Comcast Pushes Ahead with 4K Ultra High-Definition

Comcast announced the launch of Xfinity in UHD, a 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD) On Demand programming app for 2014 Samsung UHD TVs. The app provides access to the full current seasons of TV shows from NBC and USA Network.  The company said it is working to expand its Xfinity in UHD app library across multiple networks.

“Our top priority is providing our customers with the best entertainment experiences, so we are excited to give them the opportunity to be among the first to enjoy current seasons of some of the most popular TV shows in pristine Ultra High-Definition,” said Matt Strauss, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Video Services for Comcast Cable. “Next year, we will not only debut the full Xfinity in UHD catalog across our Xfinity TV Go platforms for all customers to enjoy, but we will begin distributing a new X1 set-top box that will deliver 4K content.”
