New Apple TV won't support 4K video: Report

Apple TV will not support 4K technology: Report

Apple is expected to release the next generation of its set-top box later this year without the addition of 4K technology, according to a report at BuzzFeed News.

The ultra high-resolution capability isn't used in too many U.S. households as of now.

Besides the fact that there isn't too much to watch in 4K, many household connections can't handle speeds required for this type of streaming, the report said.

Netflix added 4K streaming to their services last year, but said it would offer "limited" content.

"The additional cost to shoot, store, encode and deliver video in 4K, when compared to HD, is huge," Frost & Sullivan principal analyst Dan Rayburn told BuzzFeed. "4K is many, many years away from being adopted at critical mass," Rayburn added.
