A new, 4K and HDR-equipped Apple TV will be available for preorder on September 15. In addition to the increased screen resolution, it supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. If you have a TV that supports either of those standards, this thing is going to look great.
4K content on iTunes will be priced the same as existing HD content, which is a surprise after rumors said these files would be more expensive. The best part? Any 1080p content you have purchased from iTunes can be upgraded for free to 4K resolution.
Streaming content at 4K will be ready from Netflix, with Amazon Prime Video support coming “later this year.”
The Siri Remote has gotten a small update as well. There is now a white ring printed around the MENU button to make it stand out a bit more. The button itself appears to be a part of the touch surface, which would also help by providing some asymmetry.
tvOS will be gaining live streaming sports and news via the TV.app, if you have a cable login that supports such madness.
