According to teknoup.com the new Apple TV will be made based on the iPhone 6. That will be supported by the same A8 processor. However, Apple TV will offer streaming video 4K and 4K video playback on the TV. Now Apple’s decision to remove support for 4K video from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was again questioned.
And last week Apple said it would sell HBO’s standalone streaming service, HBO Now, when it debuts next month. Apple will be the only non-pay TV provider to offer the service at launch.
