    Drone maker DJI this week announced the launch of a new Apple TV app, which is designed to allow users to watch aerial content and 4K videos captured from around the world using DJI drones.

    The app can be used both to watch drone footage and upload drone footage that can then be shared with other users. Content currently available is curated by DJI and is organized into various categories.

    DJI's Apple TV app can be downloaded on the fourth-generation Apple TV through the tvOS App Store. It's also available on Samsung Tizen TV platforms.

    Great idea but if their SkyPixel service/Go app are anything to go by, this will be slow and not entirely user friendly.

    Since they are saying they are sharing 4k videos, hopefully this points to an upcoming 4k AppleTV via WWDC.

    Not much to this app. Just a collection of their tutorials, and demos (which are all available on their YouTube channel) plus a few (9 to be exact) curated videos under the "DJI Creators" tab which all seem to have been edited by DJI themselves, or at least branded with their splash screen and watermark.

    I work for an agency that just purchased one. Not cheap. Unfortunately I'm not even allowed to even use it, because our agency requires a certification to be trained on it. It's a really useful tool can be used for so many different scenarios.

    Well it would show 4k if Apple had its **** together in that area.
    Who would have thought Apple would be the last to jump on the 4k bandwagon?

    Let's hope next gen Apple TV is 4k and is announced soon.

    How different it is from searching for "4k drone videos" on YouTube?

    It's for those people who want to do everything "in the garden". :D

    Also, as others have stated, this might portend a 4K ATV.

    I agred with all others that hopefully this is a indicator of 4K FINALLY coming - and one of those newer processors to keep the interface and other functions speedy...

    I recently bought a Mavic pro and it is quite a bit of fun to fly. They frequently have the refurb Phantom 3 Pro for $540 on slickdeals, the Standard model has been as low as $298. Worth a look! Once you fly you'll be hooked.
