Then the Apple TV 4K may be the streaming device for you.

The report also mentions that hardware on the new Apple TV 4K makes it one of the few devices capable of supporting both Dolby Vision and HDR10 video formats.

It is not clear as to when Apple plans to bring this support to its 4K TV streaming box. Apple is also adding Amazon Prime Video - the last of the major streaming services it didn't yet have - sometime this year. If it's lower than that, Apple devices will automatically lower the quality. However, those who purchase the new set-top box will be limited in how they can enjoy 4K titles.

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. However, it doesn't now support 4K video from YouTube.

Apple succeeds in its main objective with this upgrade: 4K content looks great, on a 4K television set.

The new box has a new chip at its heart, which improves performance overall.

Apple, however, has confirmed to The Verge, as well as other publications, that Dolby Atmos support is coming to the Apple TV 4K in the future, though a timeline for the features release was not revealed. But it's the Apple TV 4K's power that might prove more important over time, he wrote. Indeed, one of the longstanding complaints surrounding the Apple TV is that it costs significantly more than competing products that, more or less, provide the same exact functionality.

But, CNET found the new Apple TV to be too expensive and considered competitors including Roku to have more bang for their buck, based on image qualities.
