  • The new Apple TV 5 is finally here

Apple has recharged its connected-TV play: The tech giant announced Apple TV 4K, priced at $179, which will stream Ultra HD movies from major Hollywood studios purchased through iTunes - for the same price as the HD version.

At its release event Tuesday, Apple confirmed that it will release the Apple TV 4K, a new version of its set top box that'll feature support for 4K-quality video. We also expect Apple to announce a new format in their Movies and TV Shows store that sells Digital UHD with HDR (whether or not the Digital UHD format will follow Vudu's use of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos in Digital UHD files is up for grabs). All iTunes users will get automatic upgrades of HD titles in their current library to 4K HDR versions as they become available at no extra charge.

Pre-orders for the new Apple TV 4K begin on September 15, with shipping slated to start on September 22.

The Apple TV app for iPhones and iPads will be available outside of the United States for the first time.


What's interesting about Apple's choice to require a 15Mbps minimum bandwidth connection for Apple TV to be able to deliver 4K is that Apple has yet to define whether the minimum bandwidth requirement will be for standard or high-dynamic range. That being said, now 4K content is catching up, it might be a ideal time to launch such a product. Given 4K content takes up a lot more space on a drive, we are surprised that Apple decided against a higher capacity model.

During the iPhone launch keynote, Apple shed some light on the future of its Apple TV range. So now it's trying an upgrade: The new box will support 4K - super-high-definition - movies and TV shows. All of these features will carry over to the Apple TV 4K. With more 4K content available than ever before from providers like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video (which will be debuting its own Apple TV app soon), the time was ripe for an Apple TV revision.

To help drive the point home about just how powerful this new tvOS-powered box is, Apple brought ThaGameCompany's Jenova Chen on stage to unveil its brand-new game.
