Apple TV refresh brings 4K, City to streaming platform

Apple announced the arrival of more 4K content to iTunes when it introduced the new Apple TV 4K last week.

The aptly named Apple 4K TV is available to purchase in-store and online, wherever Apple products are sold.

That has been the question on many Apple watchers' minds over the past week after the company unveiled the Apple TV 4K set-top box at its iPhone event.

If you're in that camp and are thinking of buying a new TV in the next few years, there's a good chance it will be 4K, so you might as well choose the 4K version of Apple TV now. The clock starts when you begin watching rented content; you still have 30 days to hit the play button.
