Apple TV 4K Finally Catches Up to Its Competitors

Apple TV 4K

The Apple TV 4K also isn't able to stream YouTube content in 4K.

The Apple TV 4K will begin shipping in the USA today along with 21 other countries.

Writing for tech news site Tom's Guide, Marshall Honorof found that the Apple TV 4K delivered outstanding visuals and he was generally impressed by its "gorgeous content in vivid colors".

Is this the year the Apple TV finally becomes a no-compromise set-top box? "An "Apple person" with a nice TV and a yen for improved image quality".

Supreme Court Sides With Trump Administration Over Refugee Ban (For Now)
On the other hand, the court said, relationships formed for the goal of evading the travel ban did not count. President Barack Obama said 110,000 refugees should be allowed in the U.S.in 2016, the report said.

Apple may still view the Apple TV as nothing more than a hobby, but the company is certainly doing all it can to transform its venerable set-top box into a must-have device. Apple also announced last week that it will upgrade customers' previous purchases to 4K free of charge.

The first reviews of the new device, which boasts 32GB of storage for the $179 model and 64GB for $199, are out, and critics say it's ideal for those looking for enhanced picture quality and improved gaming experience. The Apple TV 4K only supports H.264, HEVC (H.265), and MP4 video formats for streaming and 4K videos on YouTube are streamed in the VP9 format, which isn't supported by the new device. Apple says, "You can download a local copy of an HD movie, and you might be able to download HDR and Dolby Vision versions, but you can't download a 4K version".

The magazine and digital news service rated the Apple TV 4K 4 out of 5 based on its "gorgeous high-fidelity video". For connections with slower speeds, Apple will downsize the quality of the content.

In his review, Carnoy noted that while the Apple TV 4K has some nice features, many televisions featuring 4K resolution "have perfectly good on-board apps", like the Apple TV 4K. Movies can be rewatched as many times as you'd like - or can fit in - during the 48-hour window.
