You need the Apple TV 4K, and a 4K tv (and 4K compatible HDMI cables) to watch 4K content from the iTunes Store. If you use a receiver as a hub in the chain, then that will also have to support 4K.


When the 4K symbol shows on the index page for a title on iTunes Movies, that means the title is available in 4K. You will see the specs of exactly what is streamed to you through iTunes Movies, when you swipe down while playing.

If you only have the 4th Gen then you can only access up to the 1080P version since that is the max resolution of that model, you wouldn’t be getting HDR either. The same would apply if you had a 4K Apple TV connected to an regular HDTV, since your tv would only be 1080P.
