It looks taller and thicker and more technology.With the new Apple TV and tvOS, a redesigned interface, and the Siri Remote, there’s never been a better time to be a TV. When you got new Apple TV 4, what would you do first? Aha..,open the box first. Seriously, I would enjoy my favorite Blu-ray collections on it first! However, you should know some more information below first.
Apple TV 4 Supported Video/Audio File Formats/Codecs
4th Apple TV supports the following video and audio file formats and codecs. Before playing a Blu-ray on Apple TV 4, you'd better make sure that its format is included in the following Apple TV compatible file formats list. If not, a Blu-ray ripper that can convert Blu-rays to Apple TV 4 playable formats is a necessity.
Apple TV 4 supported video formats:
•H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High or Main Profile level 4.0 or lower, Baseline profile level 3.0 or lower with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats

As you can see, Apple TV 4 supported video file formats are very limited, Blu-ray disc or even the decrypted Blu-ray rips can’t be supported by Apple TV 4. Of course, most of you are not about to pay iTunes’ ridiculous prices to watch movies and TV shows that you already own on your Blu-ray. Instead, you’ll just rip those Blu-ray discs to an Apple TV 4 friendly format. The best solution is to rip and convert Blu-ray to iTunes compatible format, then sync to Apple TV 4 for playback without any limit. Below is how to.
