The makers of most popular streaming pucks made the jump to Ultra HD some time ago, and today Apple has finally caught up. As expected, Apple announced the new Apple TV 4K, which plays nice with both high-resolution content and the high dynamic range standards HDR10 and Dolby Vision. It'll be available to buy in the UK for £179 for the 32GB model and £199 for the 64GB version on September 15th, with shipping starting a week later on September 22nd. The fourth-gen Apple TV (32GB) will continue to be sold for £149.

A new processor means the Apple TV 4K is twice as fast as the last model, and Apple has worked with Netflix, Amazon and others to bring their 4K content to the box. Naturally, 4K movies and shows will be available on iTunes, too, and they'll be no price difference between HD and Ultra HD versions. Better yet, you'll receive a 4K copy of anything you've previously bought for free.

Apple's TV app, which pulls content from loads of different services so you can search and browse in one, unified UI, still isn't ready for the UK unfortunately. Apple promised today, however, that it'll hit set-top boxes over here before the end of the year.
