Jesus wept! You really should

Jesus wept! You really should consider a different hobby.

What they announce today is likely going to be just a 4K/HDR update to the current Platform.

And the Apple site has all the info you need on that.

And Amazon Prime still isn't available on Apple TV yet, though it's coming...

Why both? Anything on Netflix

Why both? Anything on Netflix that isn't on Amazon Prime and vice versa?

Their "Originals" mainly.

Their "Originals" mainly.

Netflix has the various Marvel franchises, Orange Is The New Black, Narcos, Stranger Things and Ozark etc, whereas Amazon has Mr. Robot, Preacher, Transparent, Man In The High Castle, Sneaky Pete and The Grand Tour for example

Got both on free trials.  Experimenting at the moment.  On Amazon Prime they have Guns N Roses live at the 02, Dolphins 4K ultra hd amongst others.  Mad Max Road Fury, the BFG, the girl on the train.  Loads to be honest.  Music documentaries.  

Netflix, lots of movies, Dolby Vision shows.

If you pay for a movie do you get to keep it forever?  Even if you quit the service?  

I guess I don't need Apple 4K anymore?  Cheers!

I have both too, mainly for choice, but not sure which I'd drop if I had to ditch one of them. There's one or two crossover films on my saved lists on both, but overall, both lists are quite different.

Just found the Tick on Amazon

Just found the Tick on Amazon Video on HDR ultra hd - looks great!  First time I got HDR up.

Apple TV is a streaming box.

Apple TV is a streaming box.  You can use it to display any photos or videos from your iPhone or iPad on your TV, plus play any music on those devices through your home cinema system.  You connect it to your amp via HDMI.

It has lots of different apps on it too like Youtube, where you can watch videos - in 4K in this new version.

It has Netflix on it but you probably get that elsewhere like on your blu ray player.

Sorry, the question was aimed at gel. If he mainly watches movies only, there's little point in having both.

I am still a bit confused

I am still a bit confused with Apple 4k TV and the way it works.  So what does the Apple 4k TV 64 gb get you?  Is it iTunes the way it works?  Why do you have to pay £200 and what does that get you?  Unlimited movies on iTunes for example? Thanks.

Am I right in thinking it's

Am I right in thinking it's iTunes the way it works? And you have to pay for all the movies on top of the Apple 4k device itself?  That's well expensive! Cheers.  

I am getting on well with NetFlix and Amazon Prime now - I have just upgraded to the yearly package for Amazon Prime and am well happy with that.  I will see if I get NetFlix too but still have it for a month.  Just Apple 4K bemuses me still.  Anyone got it?
