Comcast Xfinity UHD app brings 4k to Samsung TVs

Chicago Fire - Copyright NBCComcast has launched a new app to deliver 4k Ultra HD content to Xfinity TV customers with compatible Samsung 4k TVs. Named “Xfinity in UHD,” the new app can be downloaded from the Xfinity SMART Hub, and customers can login using their Xfinity credentials.

The initial launch on Comcast only makes a few titles available in 4k, including current episodes of this season’s NBC show “Chicago Fire,” and USA’s “Suits and Covert Affairs.” Episodes of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” is slated to debut in 4k this coming February.

As well as support for 4k programming, the new app also allows setting parental controls, enabling closed captioning, and managing audio preferences.

With the new app launch, Comcast also announced they plan to incorporate 4k streaming into a new X1 set-top box that will begin rolling out next year.

Comcast is the latest company to join the fray that is Ultra HD, following Amazon’s recent launch of 4k streams and DirecTV’s new On Demand titles in 4k. But with not much native content for Ultra HD TVs out there to watch, it will be interesting to see how the push for 4k TVs at this year’s CES pans out in terms of sales.
