So that they can begin watching their content, iTunes users will get automatic upgrades of HD titles in their existing iTunes library to 4K HDR versions when they become available. Apple TV 4K will also soon offer 4K HDR content from popular video services, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
Commenting on the launch, Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, said: “Bring the magic of the cinema straight to your living room with the new Apple TV 4K. Customers will love watching stunning 4K HDR movies from an impressive catalogue on iTunes, while also getting automatic upgrades of 4K HDR movies already in their iTunes library and enjoying 4K content on services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, coming soon.”
Apple TV 4K starts at £179 for a 32GB version or £199 for 64GB. Customers will be able to order both Apple TV 4K models from 15 September with availability beginning a week later.
