    I have heard NBC will be making some Olympics coverage in S Korea available in 4K.
    I currently have a Tivo Bolt, Xfinity TV, 100Mb/s internet, and a 4K Roku streaming stick.

    I havent heard who or where 4K will be made available, other than the announcement that DirecTv will carry it on one of their channels. No one at local Xfinity even knows what 4K is (just kidding, but they dont have any info on if any of our local cable channels will carry it).

    Anyone have any idea where to stream it? I have the NBC Sports app, but it wouldnt even stream the Super Bowl. Just buffered forever.

    If you didn't find out by now, Xfinity's 4K Olympic coverage is only available with their newer XG1v4 box, so you won't be able to get it with your Bolt:

    no, it's not a mfg model :(
    well, there are many models produced by the mfg (and others) each year
    you can get the model from your receipt, TV back label, TV System Info menu, a manual, a packed box's label, etc

    Yea, I found out. No way am I paying $18 a month extra to use their DVR when mine works great. Surprised they dont allow 4K streaming at least, for those with a subscription.
