More 4K UHD Content Will Soon Stream to Your Home Theater System

If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it 1000 times: it’s time to say goodbye to cable.

But for some homeowners, the old-fashioned way of enjoying their favorite movies, sports and TV shows is still the best. 

That’s why Comcast is trying to improve the variety of 4K Ultra HD content available in your home theater system.  And their latest announcement may just change your mind about cutting the cord.

How is the cable giant planning to win back their waning clientele? We have the answer below. Just keep reading to find out.


The First Step to More 4K

Late in October, Comcast announced that Xfinity subscribers with an X1 plan would soon be able to stream 4K UHD content via their Netflix account. According to Variety:

“The cable operator announced that Xfinity customers who have 4K-capable X1 devices can now browse and stream Netflix 4K movies and shows. Those include original films, documentaries, specials and series such as ‘The Crown,’ ‘Narcos,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ ‘Ozark,’ ‘Mindhunter,’ ‘Okja’ and ‘Marvel’s Daredevil.’”

That means you won’t have to switch between inputs if you want to enjoy full 4K UHD streaming in your home theater. 

This is good news for anyone who’s been wary of completely abandoning cable in favor of streaming apps.

The article goes on to say that Netflix 4K streaming is just the beginning. Comcast plans to bring more 4K content to your home throughout the next year. 

Soon, they even plan to add 4K options to all of their Xfinity on Demand content, allowing the X1 user to choose whether they want to watch in Ultra HD or HD.

Is Your Home Theater Ready?

Of course, if you want to stream full 4K Ultra HD content in your home theater, you’re going to need more than just a new cable box.

You’ll need to make sure your entire system is optimized to handle 4K.

That could possibly mean upgrading your displays, switches and cords to manage all of the additional information your system will process.

Remember, 4K content looks better than standard HD, but it also contains four times the information. If your home theater system isn’t ready to handle it, you could be missing out.

What else do you need to know about 4K Ultra HD? Plenty!
