Rumours have been rife for some time now that Apple are about to launch a new HD TV set and with fan sites reporting on what the set will apparently look like we decided to look at how to get the most of it as and when it’s released.
So first of all what will the Apple HDTV have going for it?
Well, the above image has been published by website Cult of Mac and claims to be the much whispered about Apple HDTV.
If rumours are to be believed will look like a ‘much bigger’ version of Apple’s current Cinema Display setting but it will come with a number of built in features including the Siri app which has proved popular on the iPhone and iSight which will allow you to make free FaceTime video calls.
The report also suggests that the Apple HDTV will come in four different sizes ranging from 40 – 60 inches wide and they’ll apparently retail between $1,000 – $2,000 (that’s upwards of £620 to us Brits).
As it’s going to be offering us a much higher definition viewing experience than ever before we’ve compiled a list of the films that are only worth viewing in HD…
Avatar: It was impressive when we saw it in the cinema but as anyone who’s watched the DVD since it came out will know, it just doesn’t have the same effect on the small screen. It’s only when viewed in HD that you can see all the hard work and intrigate detailing that went into making it such a well received film.
Up: Or indeed any kids film with plenty of CGI. Sure they look nice enough in lower definition but you really can’t appreciated a CGI created fat man being carried off by a bunch of helium ballons until you’ve viewed it in HD.
Sin City: With Sin City 2 on it’s way later this year it’s about the right time to re-watch the original however it’s dark tones and comic book style action scenes will be best appreciated when they’re watched in all their HD glory.
