A few questions about 4K.

I got myself a 4K Smart TV back in January, and have enjoyed using it when I've had it on, but there's one thing I think is missing...a 4K terminal.

My city is Hamilton, Ontario, and I know that 4K has been made available in some other parts of Ontario, but I don't think it's here in Hamilton yet. I also live in the part of the city where Mountain Cablevision used to have the coverage area for before they were bought out by Shaw, and then swapped to Rogers.

I'm just wondering if A] there's any Rogers stores in Hamilton that have those terminals for rent, and B] if there aren't, is it possible to go to the closest city that has them, get one, and have the rental cost for it added to my house's Rogers bill?

P.S. Would anyone from Rogers here in Hamilton be able to help me set such a box up at my house?

I know it's a loaded topic, but I'm trying to cover as many bases as I can here.

There are other sources for 4K content such as a streaming service. They require a 4K box such as Apple, Roku or Chromecast. 4K uses a lot of data so an unlimited internet plan is recommended.

Keep in mind that aside from sports, there isn't really any 4K channels on Rogers.

Does Rogers use Motorola equipment for that area? If it does, I don't believe there is 4K available on Motorola head ends.
