Ahead of the launch of the Apple TV 4K, Apple has updated its iTunes Store on Mac, iOS, and Apple TV with several sections highlighting a range of 4K HDR movies that are available to purchase or rent.

The 4K section lists dozens of movies broken down into categories like New Releases, Visually Stunning, Action & Adventure, Drama, Comedies, and more.

Quite a few new releases are available in 4K, including Wonder Woman, Baby Driver, Alien: Covenant, Logan, John Wick: Chapter 2, La La Land, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Apple first began making 4K content available for purchase late last week. Apple's 4K movies are available at the same price as HD movies, with new releases typically available for $19.99.

iTunes customers who have already purchased HD quality content can expect to see their HD films upgraded to 4K at no additional cost.

4K iTunes content will be available on the Apple TV 4K, set to launch this Friday, September 22. Pricing on the 4K Apple TV starts at $179 for 32GB of storage.

Hopefully they will add 4K on macOS soon. It seems odd selling up to 5K screens (which surpass the 90%+ DCI P3 colour space required for Ultra HD Premium), but limiting the video quality to 1080p.

Funny enough, I can see the big ol' 4K HDR promotional in the iTunes Store, but every single movie is still showing up as being just HD quality. I'm wanting to watch some 4K goodness on my 5K iMac!

SAME price?

They have gone up £2 pounds!
They already increased the price prior to 4K to compensate for your Brexit nuked economy.

How about the audio? Are they still limiting it to the ancient Dolby digital? What about Dolby Atmos?

I'm really hoping my already-redeemed digital copies from my blu-rays will be upgraded to 4K in iTunes. If that's the case, though, the secondary market for digital copy codes just went up.

Your downloaded HD movies in your iTunes library will not be changed. 4K versions of your past purchases are only offered for streaming to the Apple TV 4K.
