Apple only allows streaming, not download, of upgraded 4K movies

According to the guys over at MacRumors, the new 4K movies and TV shows are for streaming only, you will not be able to download the 4K content to your devices.

The Verge's comprehensive review of the Apple TV 4K reports that Apple says "the lack of Atmos isn't a hardware limitation, and that support is on the roadmap".

Apple also stated in the support document that a minimum internet speed of 25mbps will be required to stream 4K videos in full quality.

The magazine and digital news service rated the Apple TV 4K 4 out of 5 based on its "gorgeous high-fidelity video". Still, it's a free upgrade, so it's hard to complain too much. Then the Apple TV 4K may be the streaming device for you.

Apple is ramping up its push into the living room, making sure that its main vehicle for its entertainment ambitions - the Apple TV - is ready for the future.

So, who might want an Apple TV 4K?

Is this the year the Apple TV finally becomes a no-compromise set-top box?

As more and more content transitions to 4K, you will be able to see more of your favorite entertainment in stunning 4K. Apple boasts that its central processing unit is twice as fast and its graphics processor is four times as fast. Movies can be rewatched as many times as you'd like - or can fit in - during the 48-hour window.

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.

"The new Apple TV doesn't do much more than streaming boxes that cost nearly $100 less-and in some cases, it doesn't even do as much", he wrote. If it's lower than that, Apple devices will automatically lower the quality. If you have more than one Apple TV, for example, the new "One Home Screen" feature in the latest operating system lets you sync the home screen across multiple set-top boxes.
