I currently have Fios Extreme HD package, but my contract runs out on Monday 8/18. I've priced out xfinity's Premier package which includes several movie channels plus their X1 DVR and 4 HD TV's and 105mb download speed. I've been going back and forth with Fios' s retention department and they are not as generous as they were 2 years ago when I renewed for 2 years. All they will do is give me HBO free for 2 years with 50/50 Quantum service for internet and their new Quantum TV package. The two packages are almost identical in price except that xfinity has more movie channels. I've read that Fios's HD picture quality is superior to xfinity because of the fiber optics. I also have a new 4K TV and want to get the best picture possible. I live in the Boston area and would appreciate some feedback from members.
I don't think anything is being broadcast in native 4k so at best, you'll get an upconverted pictured from a normally compressed signal.
I agree - there is no native 4k broadcasts. I' m basically more concerned with regular HD(1080i) broadcasts for all the HD TV's in the house. I would really like to get opinions on which provider, Fios or Comcast will provide the best picture quality overall. From what I've read, Comcast's signal is more compressed than Fios. If this is true, wouldn't Fios result in a better picture?
