Moreover, Apple is not charging users an extra amount for 4K content. 4K movies will be charged as much as the HD version. It's a 4K-ready version of the existing Apple TV, a hockey puck-sized box that plugs into your television, allowing you to access any movie or show you've bought through iTunes, as well as through streaming apps such as Netflix or Hulu. By adding support for 4K content, Apple joins competitors such as Roku in offering super-high definition quality for shows and films. But at the same time, some people like downloading their movies and streaming locally, off of a computer, rather than relying on a external Internet connection.
Apple succeeds in its main objective with this upgrade: 4K content looks great, on a 4K television set. YouTube uses the VP9 video format for its 4K videos, which the Apple TV doesn't support.
The decision makes sense, given Netflix already streams HDR video on Apple's new 4K TV.
As yet there are no details on why Apple has made it so you can only stream the 4K movies and not download them to your device.
Netflix Brings HDR Support To iPhone X & iPad Pro
Even though most of the attention has been focused on its famous handset recently, Apple talked about more than just the iPhone X at its September 12 event; the company also announced the Apple TV 4K.
The new box has a new chip at its heart, which improves performance overall.
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 flawless for those looking for enhanced picture quality and improved gaming experience. Apple boasts that its central processing unit is twice as fast and its graphics processor is four times as fast. The news comes ahead of the Apple TV 4K launch. The 4K Apple TV can run MP4, H.264, and HEVC (H.265) codecs. 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. For connections with slower speeds, Apple will downsize the quality of the content.

The US does not have a history of major military parades marching through its cities, except to celebrate wartime victories. He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital.
