$179 Apple TV 4K boasts high dynamic range support, free 4K upgrades to iTunes movie purchases

Apple has unveiled a 4K upgrade to its Apple TV streaming set-top box, giving users the ability to watch the high-resolution content through the device, and to update their existing iTunes HD movie library to 4K for free.

The new Apple TV 4K can output video at a resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels, making it capable of displaying UHD content on a connected 4K television. The Apple TV 4K also includes support for high dynamic range (HDR), which will allow users to see a more vivid picture when used with a suitably compatible TV screen.

In order to provide users with content to watch, Apple has also updated the iTunes Store to allow for some movies and TV shows to be offered to consumers in 4K with HDR. Originally spotted in July, the added 4K support is available for both owned and rented copies of films in the store, and requires at least a 15 megabit per second connection in order to stream.

Notably, agreements with major Hollywood studios has resulted in 4K movies being made available at the same cost as HD versions, with free automatic upgrades to 4K HDR for previous purchases.
