Comcast launches Xfinity in UHD for Samsung 2014 models

When UHD TVs started appearing at tech events this year, one of the biggest criticisms of the new trend is that while hardware is definitely capable and tempting, there is a lack of content that takes advantage of the considerably higher pixel count.
