Goodbye Chromecast Ultra if this comes to fruition.

You also have open public beta against current ATV4 showing more effort to incorporate features into tvOS 11 beta (current beta 4). So if a replacement is to appear it would be around the time of that software progression. There are a lot of hardware/software development in progression towards release right now later this year.

If this allows Dolby Vision titles streamed outside of US, I'll be sooooo happy.

If the service doesn't permit a title playback because of your IP range its won't be because of the ATV5 software/hardware.

tvOS 11 firmware leak suggests ‘Apple TV 4K’ name, potential Siri Remote update, HDR details, more - 9to5mac

Quote:
As first mentioned on Twitter by developer Steve Troughton-Smith, the marketing name for the fifth-gen Apple TV — which is referred to as AppleTV6,2 — appears to be ‘Apple TV 4K’ to denote ultra high definition support. This marks the first time the Apple TV has received a modifier in the name. The Apple TV 4K name also suggests the current 1080p box will stick around presumably to maintain a lower price point.

Troughton-Smith also believes the Apple TV 4K will feature a “three-core A10 Fusion CPU and 3GB RAM” which will be a big jump from the A8 chip and 2GB RAM.

Apple TV 4K is also widely expected to support HDR, or high dynamic range color, and the tvOS 11 firmware makes reference to this feature.

Code intended for the Settings app references ‘HDR Modes’ and explains that ‘Apple TV will choose the widest color range available. If you don’t see an option you expect, make sure Apple TV is plugged into a supported HDMI 2.0 port.’

The same code also references Dolby Vision with this description: ‘Get the best picture with better, brighter colors, We’ll make sure your HDMI cable is compatible before we turn on Dolby Vision.’

And although the website isn’t live yet, the code also refers to support.apple.com/appletv/HDR for more information on high dynamic range and Apple TV.

AirPlay 2 features for whole home audio and what is likely HomeKit support are also referenced throughout the tvOS 11 firmware, although we haven’t seen these promised features available on the current Apple TV since being unveiled at WWDC in June.

Finally, there’s evidence in the tvOS 11 firmware that we’ll see an updated Siri Remote bundled with the Apple TV 4K. The model version jumps from B239 to B429 and has its own firmware separate from the current Siri Remote, although it’s unclear if this means a desired design refresh or just an internal change.

Question is, will movie rentals be 4K HDR 2020 24hz or 60hz. If they continue to not use 24hz, no sale.

I feel like people should make a bigger deal about this, since they're the only online distributor doing it right now.

But how many of your purchases actually have 4k versions?

Edit: and will these free upgrades be time sensitive?

4K titles also cost the same as HD titles in iTunes.

Great to see that films you already have will be upgraded for free to the 4K version.

Also, I wonder digital copies of films that come with 4K blu-rays, will they be iTunes only from now on instead of UltraViolet?

They don't.
