Comcast has launched Xfinity in UHD, a 4K Ultra HD app for compatible Samsung TVs.

Debuting with full current seasons of TV shows from NBC and USA Network, the Xfinity in UHD app library will continue to expand with on-demand programming across multiple networks and studios. It's free to Xfinity TV customers whose video subscription includes participating networks.

Available series include Chicago Fire (NBC), Suits and Covert Affairs (USA), with Parks and Recreation (NBC) set to debut in February. Additionally, customers can personalise viewing experiences within the app by setting parental controls, enabling closed captioning and managing audio preferences.

Matt Strauss, senior vice president and general manager of video services for Comcast Cable: "Next year, we will not only debut the full Xfinity in UHD catalogue across our Xfinity TV Go platforms for all customers to enjoy, but we will begin distributing a new X1 set-top box that will deliver 4K content."
