"Yes, the $179 Apple TV 4K finally delivers gorgeous high fidelity video, but as usual, you're paying a premium for convenience and ease-of-use", Eadicicco wrote for TIME, Fortune's sister publication. Apple allows you to download a rental on one device and stream it on another: for example, you could rent something to watch on a flight and download a copy to your iPhone 8, then switch over to streaming the remainder to your Apple TV when you get home.

You can apparently download a local copy of a HD movie and also some movies which support HDR and Dolby Vision, but not 4K movies, you can see exactly what Apple has to say about this below.

If you previously bought an HD movie from the iTunes Store, you might have access to the 4K version, HDR, or Dolby Vision enhancements on a compatible device.

The Verge did discover over the weekend that it's possible to download and play 1080p full HD movies with HDR on the 2017 iPad Pro models.

In addition to this, there are several other features available on the Apple TV 4K as well.

The higher the quality of the video that you're trying to stream, the faster your Internet connection has to be.

Apple succeeds in its main objective with this upgrade: 4K content looks great, on a 4K television set. Additionally, The Source hasn't updated its site to indicate that it will carry the Apple TV 4K, but it does now have the fourth-gen Apple TV in stock. I have a collection of DVDs and don't feel like paying again for higher-quality Blu-ray or digital versions. Caveat is, of course, that you need a 4K television-something many households don't now have.

It's very likely that Apple put this restriction on downloading 4K iTunes movies as part of its deal with Hollywood studios. The 4K Apple TV can run MP4, H.264, and HEVC (H.265) codecs. These features alone aren't enough to justify an Apple TV 4K unless you're a gamer. But it's the Apple TV 4K's power that might prove more important over time, he wrote. Moreover, Apple is not charging users an extra amount for 4K content. 4K movies will be charged as much as the HD version.

The Apple TV's remote has been a source of debate, with some people saying its Siri integration and few buttons is fantastic, and others saying it's seriously flawed.
