Apple TV's new picture functions require more processing power, and Apple is using an upgraded, faster processor to deal with the fresh demands, the A10X processor, the same chip that's in the iPad Pro. Netflix and Amazon Prime TV will also be bringing their 4K HDR content to Apple TV too.

The Apple 4K TV will be available to order starting September 15, shipping a week later on September 22. The Apple TV 4K starts at $179 for 32 GB, and you can opt for a 64 GB model for a whopping $199.

It's been almost two years since the last version of Apple TV launched, and the tech world has changed a lot.

iTunes Now Has 4k Movies and They'll Cost the Same as HD Movies Now. Some of these will include 10-bit video, known to consumers by the moniker of high-dynamic range (HDR). I think the Apple TV 4K will still be the best of the lot, but it's not worth almost double the asking price of the others.

At $US179, it will still be at a premium price relative to competitors, each of which already has models supporting 4K and HDR.

"Apple TV goes beyond entertainment to help deliver on Apple's vision of the smart home". However, Apple CEO Tim Cook said today that the television market is about to break wide open as 4K enters the mainstream with more households buying a 4K TV. All of these features will carry over to the Apple TV 4K. A multi-player game that allows upto 8 users to connect on the social adventure, Sky provides depth, clarity and great gameplay for the Apple TV, other thanm the regular feed and features.

It has a new processor that is 70 percent faster than last year's chip, Apple executive Jeff Williams said at the product's introduction. According to Eddy Cue's presentation during the keynote, the new Apple TV will be available for ordering on September 15th and will ship on September 22nd. And it doesn't seem like there's any bad blood there, either, since Apple has teamed with 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, Universal, Paramount, Sony, and Warner bring their 4K and HDR titles to the iTunes store.

Next stop at the Apple event is the new Apple TV.
