4 streaming video apps to watch TV, movies on your phone

IMG_0110

The aptly named Apple 4K TV is available to purchase in-store and online, wherever Apple products are sold. Apple hasn't revealed when this support could happen.

Mashable found a lot to like with Apple's new offering, but ultimately came to the conclusion that it doesn't provide enough bang for the buck.

While overshadowed by the launch of Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) flagship iPhones, the tech giant also unveiled its new and improved Apple TV 4K at its September 12 event, demonstrating how the product has evolved to bring TV viewing into the future. It's a 4K-ready version of the existing Apple TV, a hockey puck-sized box that plugs into your television, allowing you to access any movie or show you've bought through iTunes, as well as through streaming apps such as Netflix or Hulu. Apple boasts that its central processing unit is twice as fast and its graphics processor is four times as fast. Powered by Apple A10X processor, the Apple TV 4K is priced at Rs 15,900 for 32GB and Rs 17,900 for the 64GB variant. Now, you'll have 48 hours to finish watching your rental. Once you hit the Rent button, you can then tap Rent and Watch Later (on Apple TV) or Not Now (on iOS devices).

Matthew Vaughn Wants to Make 'Kingsman 3' and Spin-Off Movies
So what happened to that extra 1 hour and 20 minutes? The Kingsman are not welcome in a new clip from The Golden Circle . After all, that film did for spies what Kick-Ass did for comic-book superheroes, and raked in more than $400m worldwide.

Apple has also put quite a bit of work into its integration with other devices.

Apple isn't clear about why it added this restriction, though it's thought to be either a licensing issue - Apple is charging the same price for 4K movies as the HD versions - or it could simply be due to the large 4K file sizes taking up too much of the Apple TV's built-in storage.

The tech blog gave mixed reviews to Apple's latest set-top box, but still awarded it an overall rating of 7.5, saying Apple is "the only company that has the combination of power and care to actually do it". The only catch is you have to buy or rent movies on your computer or Android device before you can watch them on the Google Play app - it's an Apple rule, not Google's choice.
