According to the sources of Bloomberg, the current Apple TV, which is in the Netherlands for 179 euro cost, a product that is a result of many compromises. So was Apple in the first instance intend to make the Apple TV a complete replacement for the cable box of televisieproviders. It is also considered to be a game controller to supply, in order to compete with the PlayStation and Xbox.
There was not, however, to save costs and because the American tv and telecom companies, not wanted to participate to support of the Apple TV. 4K support was previously provided by Apple shall be deleted because there is a more expensive processor, and that the profit margin would have printed. Also the omission of the game controller, thus, allow the sources.
