Apple TV is going 4K.
Apple announced the Apple TV 4K on Tuesday during its annual September event from the new Steve Jobs Theater at its new Apple Park campus.
The new Apple TV 4K will be able to stream 4K – or UHD (ultra high definition) – resolution video, which is sharper than the full-HD 1080p resolution from previous Apple TV models.
The Apple TV 4K will also support HDR (high dynamic range) to produce better colors and contrast between light and dark areas of a scene.
Apple also announced that 4K movies and TV shows will sell at the same price as their HD counterparts and that movies that were bought in HD in the past will be automatically upgraded to 4K for free.
Apple TV 4K will be $179 and ship September 22.
