Where's the content?

Streaming content is the only thing embracing 4K at the moment.

Not one linear channel that I have heard.

I see directv and comcast are broadcasting the World Cup in 4K HDR. And apparently some Hisense TVs are also using the Fox Sports app somehow. Unfortunately it looks like this isn't available from Verizon

And as it has been said many times in this thread and others, and Verizon never promised or posted that it would be in the present or future.

No.

Although some cable providers have 4k stbs, I don't think there are any linear channels broadcasting in 4k. Maybe some on demand.

There are a few 4k channels but none on most services.  Verizon was even trialing some in there aborted IPTV STB's.

 

Ones listed on an article about Verizon testing 4k with SES were

Fashion One 4K, Insight, Travelxp 4K, Nature Relaxation, C4K360, 4K Universe, UHD1, SES Demo Channel, and NASA TV UHD.  Not sure if these were the ones in the iptv Trial.

 

No idea what is being offered on some other services like Directv.

 

If your Smart TV supports streaming(e.g. hitense, LG, etc.), or yot have a seperate Streaming box which supports 4k, you can view 4k material on you 4k TV while using FIOS internet service.

 

I suspect we will not here much from Verizon until and if ATSC 3.0 takes off and becomes popular carrying 4k channels.
