How Apple TV 4K could outpace competition from Roku, Amazon and more

 The Apple TV 4K is here, and it has both 4K resolution (as the name implies) and HDR support, which means it can work with the latest TVs, projectors and content formats for better picture, brighter colors and generally improved visuals.
