Watch Live Sports in Beautiful Picture with Apple TV 4K

It starts at US$179, versus $149 for the current model.

The user interface has been remade in 4K, ensuring it is sharp and crisp for TVs with support for Ultra HD. Apple's Tim Cook said 4K will add "cinematic quality to virtually everything you watch", and Apple's Eddy Cue added that customers who purchased HD versions of movies will automatically get 4K versions. Apple is also working with streaming companies like Netflix to bring their 4K video content to the Apple TV 4K.

You'll also be able to use the TV to view photos and videos on your TV screen, listen to music through Apple Music, connect to multiple AirPlay 2-compatible speakers, and use it as a hub for all of your smart HomeKit gear.

The Apple TV 4K also comes with a redesigned remote, one that according to Apple allows users to operate the TV with a single finger. The Apple TV 4K also supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, two HDR standards. It'll cost $172 for the base model with 32GB of storage or $199 for the upgrade to 64GB of storage.

Dartmouth hospital locked down after report of shooting
One person is in custody after an active-shooter report at a New Hampshire hospital, according to the city's website . Several witnesses driving along Interstate I-89 reported seeing heavy State Police presence at all exits.

But it's not clear the forthcoming Apple TV 4K will really move the needle for the company in the category, where it has trailed rivals like Roku, Amazon's Fire TV and Google's Chromecast.

But in truth, the Apple TV 4K has a lot to offer - it's just that you'll have to be invested in Apple's device ecosystem to really enjoy it.

Prior to today's official announcement, we had heard that Apple was clashing with prominent Hollywood studios over the pricing of 4K content. While the 2015 model used an A8 chip that has always been dropped from Apple's iPhone lineup, the Apple TV 4K runs on an A10X Fusion chip - the same processor that is inside the latest iPad Pro devices. But it won't charge more - the 4K movies will cost as much as HD video. The fourth-generation Apple TV was already behind the curve when Apple launched it without 4K in 2015, and now that it has caught up with the competition, it's still about $100 more expensive than comparable devices. Do you plan on buying a new set-top box?

Indeed, Apple claims it is twice as fast, with four times the graphical processing power.
