There isn't a native throughput setting on the X1 so far, so unless you are using a TiVo, for example, you can't tell as far as I know. From what Comcast has told me, all the HD channels will be recoded to 720p@60fps. I sent out a message to the engineers to ask for you. Some information may also be found here. to see if others have mentioned channels.

If you want to output video at 720p, go into the settings (gear icon), then device settings, then video display.

Update: I spoke to the engineer and was told that I am correct in my assessment that there currently is no way to determine on the X1 what resolution the viewed channels is being broadcast in.

Opinions expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of my employer or its associated companies.

WOOOOO!!!!! Got a message yesterday that Netflix was now available as a BETA. Went to Apps on the X1 box and there it was! Logged in and worked like a charm. Finished up Black Mirror Season 2 before the release today of season 3. This will make my wife so happy as she'll be able to access Netflix from any X1 box now rather than have to depend on our XBOX ONEs.
