Dolby Atmos Coming to Apple TV in Future Update

Apple TV 4K The Good and Bad in Apple TV 4K: Everything You Need to Know
June Sullivan | 23 September, 2017, 01:46

While the new 48-hour rental period is available in the U.S., we've reached out to Apple to see if it will be the same in other countries and regions that support iTunes movie rentals and will update this post when we hear back.

The Apple TV 4K ships today. Additionally, The Source hasn't updated its site to indicate that it will carry the Apple TV 4K, but it does now have the fourth-gen Apple TV in stock. Apple hasn't revealed when this support could happen. Indeed, one of the longstanding complaints surrounding the Apple TV is that it costs significantly more than competing products that, more or less, provide the same exact functionality.

Overall, The Verge considered the new Apple TV to be too expensive at its current price.

Is this the year the Apple TV finally becomes a no-compromise set-top box?

HD videos feature a higher-quality picture than SD videos.

Even if you don't have a 4K television - and many of you may not - there are still some improvements in this update for you, big and small.

As noted in Apple's support documents (via MacRumors), 4K content from the iTunes store can only be streamed.

"Outside of gaming consoles, custom-built home theater PCs, and the extremely niche Nvidia Shield, the Apple TV 4K is the most powerful mainstream box you can stick under your TV", he wrote. Apple boasts that its central processing unit is twice as fast and its graphics processor is four times as fast. The Apple TV remote received a subtle but useful redesign that added a textured ring to the menu button. Given that rival devices are cheaper, what you're buying isn't the device, but an experience - integration and syncing with all your other Apple gadgets.

Apple has extended the period of time that customers have to finish (or rewatch) a rented movie to 48 hours. So if you stop watching in one place, you can start again later on a different device.
