The next Apple TV won’t play 4K video

A source for BuzzFeed News’ John Paczkowski (who’s historically accurate with such rumors) claims that Apple’s upcoming media hub will stick to 1080p because 4K technology is “still in its infancy.” While the A8 chip rumored to be in the device can handle the ultra-high resolution, the market just isn’t there yet. Even Amazon.com and Netflix don’t have a lot of 4K content, and there’s also the question of finding enough people with both compatible TVs and sufficiently speedy internet access. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
