    Apple TV 4K official

    Anyone else experiencing a broken Amazon Prime app on AppleTV box? I have two AppleTV 4K boxes and both are at the same firmware level. However one has Prime Video app with the old interface which works fine and one has a newer interface, and will no longer stream shows or movies in 4K or HDR.

    Apple doesn’t sell 4K TVs, but they do sell Apple TV 4K units. :D

    I confirm exactly what you are seeing. Episodes 1 and 3 of Mad Dogs have HDR and episode 2 does not. Something is screwy somewhere and I don’t know if the fault lies with Amazon, the Prime app, or Apple TV. All I can say is several months ago I watched Jack Ryan and Mrs. Maisel in full HDR and...

    Robert, that’s because none of those titles are available for sale anymore, so AppleTV hasn’t kept the specs up to date. The director’s cuts of the Alien movies are no longer sold as separates, but are now available in the “extras” in the theatrical versions.

    And I assume that on the episode you bought, you checked to make sure there wasn't a hidden 5.1 track and it wasn't just defaulting to a 2.0 track?

    Yes, I think you've got it. iTunes will stream 1080p with Atmos. With Vudu and Amazon Prime, Atmos is restricted to 4K streams only. As for the Movies Anywhere app, I have yet to find a single title that has Atmos, so I'm guessing Atmos is not yet available there.

    If the code is still active and you redeem it at iTunes (not ultraviolet!) then yes, you will get 4K.

    My old iTunes code redemption of Schindler's List just upgraded to 4K, however not HDR. Vudu has HDR, why not iTunes?

    That’s just iTunes being weird. Rest assured anything you buy directly from iTunes in a bundle will be the 4K version. However it will port to Movies Anywhere as HD because iTunes has the bundle tagged as HD. I know this because I bought the Harry Potter bundle on iTunes and all the movies were...

    After looking more closely, I'm finding very few Vudu titles I can even get Atmos on. Perhaps the issue there is you (TonyD) are just not finding Vudu titles that have Atmos? And also you'll notice the specs at Vudu.com definitely show Atmos as only on UHD streams, not HDX streams.

    I have my ATV always outputting 4K and I think everyone else responding here probably does too, which is why we don’t see the same issues. It makes sense that Atmos may be tied to 4K streams on some content. As for Vudu, the only difference I notice there is Vudu Atmos streams with a core of...

    Are you sure the firmware is up to date on the AppleTV? I know Amazon used to only be 2.0 sound until a firmware update fixed it.

    Your Apple devices will only search in apps connected to the TV app. Vudu is not (and at this time can not) be connected to the TV app. If you go into your device’s settings and find the TV app it will show you all what is connected to it.

    Hasn’t the iTunes 4k/not 4k issue been covered ad nauseum in these forums? If you BUY the title on iTunes you get 4K. If you redeem a code THROUGH ITUNES you get 4K. If you redeem a non-4k code anywhere else iTunes will NOT give you a free upgrade.

    Yes, we know. That's what we are discussing, the fact that Apple 4K is a streaming only platform.

    You wouldn't have to store them. Just download, watch and then delete.

    Apple TV 4K official

    Let me elaborate on why the decision to make Apple 4K "streaming only" sucks. I have a lot of iTunes movies. iTunes has always had one big advantage over other digital providers in that they do not ramp down quality whether you stream or download. If your internet connection was too slow, the...

    https://www.macrumors.com/2017/09/21/itunes-4k-content-streaming-only/ Now that I know that 4K iTunes files will not be downloadable, that makes it easy for me to stay off the 4K bandwagon for the time being.

    It just dawned on me that the Apple TV 4K only has a single HDMI output, unlike Blu-ray 4K players that give you dual HDMI outputs so that you don't have to upgrade to a 4K compatible receiver. So for those who don't have the right equipment, it's going to be really tricky to get sound and 4K...

    Hmm.. I've got an iPad Pro. I don't know the generation, it was bought last Christmas. Here's what I see, the 4K moniker but no download file size. edit: Now I get it. The second gen iPad Pro came out last June and has an A10X fusion processor which supports 4K and my first gen model will not.

    Where are you getting this information? I'm not seeing a way to download a 4K file. Downloads will be limited to 1080p only.

    Well Apple definitely followed through on their promise. Looking at my iTunes library I see that a shitload of titles upgraded to 4K ownership for me. This means that even digital copy redemptions are upgraded to 4K as well. The studios are probably going to fight this, because if you can...

    I'm assuming 4K iTunes movies will be streaming only via Apple TV device and not for downloading to a hard-drive, correct?
