Apple TV's 4K movie pricing is exactly what the 4K world needs

Like the Apple Watch Series 3 that we covered earlier, the Apple TV 4K will be available for pre-order on 15th of September and will be available on sale starting September 22. It will start at $179.

Apple TV was announced to the world on September 2006 - more then ten years ago now - with the working name of iTV (which was eventually dropped due to a certain British broadcaster). Apple claims the CPU is twice as fast as before, and that the GPU is four times as fast.

The Apple TV 4K will also automatically detect the capabilities of your TV to optimise setup and output the highest possible resolution, including a video scaler to make regular HD content look better on 4K TVs.

Another big announcement is the arrival of Live Sports and Live News to Apple TV. Apple has finally breached the 4K barriers with the all new Apple TV 4K. In 2015, the company unveiled a costly update with a new Siri-power remote. Netflix offers a huge range of 4k HDR content, but you will need the more expensive Netflix plan to take advantage of this.

What will the 5th-generation Apple TV cost? We expect it will also come to the older Apple TV.

It's also simple to send movies, TV shows, home videos and photos from iPhone or iPad instantly to the TV using AirPlay from your iOS devices. It is the first-ever event at the theater, which is located at the company's corporate headquarters and dedicated to Apple's late co-founder.

Clement added: "Tammy's got around the goalkeeper at 0-0 and on another day we might have got something out of that". Even right up to the end, where we did continue to push, we couldn't get a decent ball into the box.

Following on from its successful rollout in the USA, the Apple TV App will soon be available in the UK.

With Apple investing up to $1 billion in original content, though, it was high time for some fresh hardware.

Apple begrudgingly started to support non-Apple apps and services on the Apple TV with the launch of tvOS on the most recent 1080p Apple TV two years ago.

In addition to 4K streaming support, Apple touted the device will also support High Dynamic Range (HDR).

A faster processor won't just be a boon for better picture quality; it will also give Apple far more flexibility with what these devices can do.
