Following Monday’s media event, where it was announced Apple would soon debut a new “Apple TV+” subscription streaming service, Apple renamed its fourth-generation 1080p-capable 2015 Apple TV to “Apple TV HD.”
The Apple TV HD is offered alongside the Apple TV 4K as a cheaper alternative than the 4K UHD-capable model, released in 2017. The 32GB fourth-generation Apple TV is $149 , while the Apple TV 4K is $30 more expensive, starting at $179 for 32GB of storage.
Both Apple TV models will provide access to the redesigned Apple TV app, which will act as a hub for Apple’s upcoming Apple TV+ subscription service.
The revamped app will provide access to your favorite shows – including subscriptions from services such as HBO, Showtime, Starz, and other major streaming services – without the need to swap between the services’ various apps.
Apple plans to debut its updated Apple TV app via an iOS and tvOS update coming this May. The TV app will also be coming to the Mac this fall.
