Screen Zoom on Ultra/Audio question

Several months ago, I sold my Roku 3 and replaced it with the free Xfinity Flex 4K streamer since I'd upgraded to an LG OLED. While it's far from perfect it has a unique feature in display settings called 'zoom'. And as you can imagine, it removes any bands from top and bottom and zooms the screen.

I've grown to like the feature but am frustrated with the lack of channels, and requirement to buy high priced subscriptions through Comcast rather than direct from Netflix, Showtime, HBO, etc. 

I'm hunting for an Ultra and am curious if there's a zoom feature in device settings. Also wondering if there's any audio difference between models since Roku passes it through, while the Flex sends all audio in DD Plus. Thanks

I can't answer the audio questions, but no Roku offers any zoom settings - use your TV's settings.

Re: Screen Zoom on Ultra/Audio question

Thanks..I had a feeling the feature wasn't available. Do you have any recommendations with respect to which model? I'm watching some 4660's and a 4670 on Ebay. Thanks
