How to Find 4K and HDR Content on Apple TV

According to Apple, the minimum speed for streaming 4K content should be 25 Mbps. In case your Internet connection isn’t fast enough, your Apple TV will automatically switch the video quality to a lower quality version. Hence, make sure you have fully covered all the bases before getting started.

How to Find 4K and HDR content on Apple TV

Notes:

  • The HD videos support a resolution of 1920×1080, whereas a resolution of 4K videos is 3840×2160. As a result, it provides more detailed and sharper imagery.
  • With broader range of colors and luminance, HDR videos look awesome on any size screen.
  • iTunes Store has the support of movies which are both in HDR10 and Dolby Vision. If there is an HDR icon, the movie can play in HDR10. The Dolby Vision icon shows up when a movie is available in Dolby Vision.

Check the Badges to Find If the Content is Compatible with 4K/HDR or Not

To find out if a movie can play in 4K on a compatible device, check out 4K on the product page.

By default, the videos, which are available to be purchased or rent in the iTunes Store, are available to playback in HD. iTunes Store movies might also be available in HDR10 or Dolby Vision.

The content, which is compatible with your device, will automatically play in the HDR format.

Check the Quality of your Previous iTunes Store Purchases

If you already have an HD movie from the iTunes Store, you may be able to access the 4K version, HDR, or Dolby Vision enhancements.

In case your iTunes Store purchase currently doesn’t have the support of 4K or HDR, it might be added later.
