Some 4K content from YouTube in in HDR. However using the XG1V4 and I assume the Xi6 it appears currently HDR is not available with these boxes.
***I am a satisfied Comcast customer and they have made great strides with their "Customer Service" and offerings. But I never upgraded our X1 Infinity STB to the 4K offering. Just no 4K/HDR content, IMHO, worth making the switch. I'll venture to say that my "OTA" Fox broadcast of the Super Bowl will be better than the 1080p (camera) content that is to be "upscaled" by Fox.
Quite frankly, my Sony 900F does a far better job of upscaling a 720p signal than Comcast's box. And most 4K that I see (streaming, as well) isn't as good as solid 1080p content "upscaled" by my Sony Extreme Processor and native OTA at 1080i, which is lights out.
Down the road, IMHO, EVERYTHING will be streamed via the internet. It's just a more efficient way to transmit and with higher frame rates (60fps) One of the current benefits of Comcast right now is streaming through an older 1080p TV as it doesn't count against your data consumption. I'm not sure if Comcast still limits you to 1 TB a month or not. But give me a quality, non compressed (as much as possible) 1080p signal all the time and I'd be a happy camper. Everything else is gravy.
