    I purchased Passengers a couple of days ago. When checking my account history it shows as being purchased in 4K, HDR.

    So is the actual file in 4K? Open it on your computer and see if the resolution is greater than 1920X1080.

    I can only see an option to download in HD. Just seems strange that it is listed as a 4K purchase.

    Will there be a new Apple TV device that is 4K or will they simply just update the current recent Apple TV with a software update to get 4K ?

    The current ATV cannot do HDR - HDR10 needs HDMI2.0 and Dolby Vision requires dedicated chips (but could work over HDMI 1.4) - so it is unlikely 4K will ever come to ATV4.

    So, Apple will upgrade these movies to 4K even though they were 1080p when you purchased them? That's really awesome if true.

    Here's my purchase history from the US store. :-/ I really hope they will make 4K movie available soon. New hardware would also be a BIG plus!

    Same here. This is from my purchase history. Recently rented Fantastic Beasts on my Apple TV. Not sure if it matters but my Apple TV is connected to a KS8000 4k/HDR TV. iTunes_2017-07-28_11-19-32.png

    Thank you for the tips! I normally use Blu-Ray dot com or an app called Cheapcharts to see if there's any discount movies. Been working on my collection with 766 movies so far :)

    Last I knew, the files you download from Desktop iTunes were different from those served up on the ATV 4 gen store. (Lack of DD+ audio is a telltale sign of this)

    I don't know absolutley- it's been a while since I purchased an iTunes file. It would be news to me if it's actually a different file. I think the Dolby Digital is in there with non-surround audio for computers. The last one I did download has both tracks wrapped in FairPlay... but the DD track is in there too.
