New Apple TV Will Not Support 4K Video Streaming

John Paczkowski, with yet another Apple TV scoop:

Sources in position to know tell BuzzFeed News that the 4th generation Apple TV will not initially support 4K video — a newer high-definition video resolution that delivers a more detailed, immersive picture. “4K is great, but it’s still in its infancy,” said one source familiar with Apple’s thinking.

My guess is that the next-generation Apple TV won’t ship with the A8, either. Apple is going to try to keep the entry-price as low as possible, and packaging the set-top box with a previous generation chip wouldn’t hurt. Besides, if it won’t stream 4K video, what’s the point in having the high-end, more expensive chip?
