The Apple TV is finally getting an upgrade since 2015. The latest Apple TV 4K has more features than just 4K support.
The Apple TV 4K 2017 features support for HDR, both Dolby Vision, and HDR10, which are two of the key formats of HDR that is supported by popular video streaming websites such as Amazon and Netflix.
Apple is also stepping up by to bring more content for their Apple TV 4K platform by partnering with movie studios. We had earlier heard news on Apple bidding for movie rights for the James Bond series.
The cost of the 4K movies will be same as that of HD resolution ones and if you already have bought any HD video content on Apple TV, those videos will be automatically upgraded for free to 4K resolution.
The Apple TV will also be allowing you to stream live media channels including sports and news channels. Also, if you are living in Canada or Australia, Apple TV will reach both these countries by the end of this month and will be supported across 5 more countries by the end of this year.
