Comcast Launches 4K Streaming Service

Comcast, the biggest pay-TV operator in the US with nearly 22.4 million video customers, has launched a 4K streaming app that will enable subscribers to watch select TV shows in the UHD format on an on-demand basis via the Internet. The MSO’s Xfinity TV subscribers can download the new 4K app, known as Xfinity in UHD, for free using their standard authentication credentials. […] By offering the 4K streaming service for no extra charge to its customers, Comcast is taking a different tack than DirecTV, its huge satellite TV rival. […] Besides delivering Xfinity in UHD to Sansung TV viewers, Comcast said it will offer the 4K streaming service to portable devices through its Xfinity TV Go app sometime next year. The MSO also intends to introduce an advanced new X1 set-top box that supports 4K video in 2015. – Alan Breznick,Light Reading
