Apple only allows streaming, not download, of upgraded 4K movies


It is not clear as to when Apple plans to bring this support to its 4K TV streaming box. 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.

But is the Apple TV 4K really a nice upgrade?

Is this the year the Apple TV finally becomes a no-compromise set-top box?

The new Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) TV 4K doesn't ship with Dolby Atmos surround sound support or support for 4K HDR YouTube videos. If you have an iPhone or iPad, this is even more true, since the setup is so easy. The upgraded streaming box comes with CPU with performance twice as fast and graphics four times faster.

Apple may still view the Apple TV as nothing more than a hobby, but the company is certainly doing all it can to transform its venerable set-top box into a must-have device. Dolby Atmos support was missing, however, making potential buyers a little unhappy, given the $179 starting price tag of the Apple TV 4K. For connections with slower speeds, Apple will downsize the quality of the content. However, it doesn't now support 4K video from YouTube. You can use Siri, by the way, to find 4K content for you on Apple TV.

The Apple TV app, one of the default apps included on iPhones and iPads, also syncs with the Apple TV 4K so that you can pick up a show on your mobile device at the same point where you stopped watching it on your television.

In his review, Carnoy noted that while the Apple TV 4K has some nice features, many televisions featuring 4K resolution "have perfectly good on-board apps", like the Apple TV 4K.
