This news is specially exciting for media lovers and movie addicts who like to sit in the comfort of their living rooms and entertain themselves to the latest new episode or movie.

An iPhone unlike any other. iPhone X features an all‑new 5.8‑inch Super Retina HD Display with high resolution and brightness, wide color support, and the best color accuracy in the industry. The device will support 4K resolution to give a crisper picture using four times more pixels than standard HD. Another great addition is the first ever OLED screen on an iPhone which boasts accurate, stunning colors, true blacks, high brightness, and a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio. A great advantage of the iPhone X is its power efficiency with custom battery designed to last much longer than before. This means extended hours of non-stop media enjoyment.

Apple TV 4K

Say hello to the new Apple TV. Apple TV 4K takes a huge leap from its predecessor and includes some really impressive features. For starters, it supports 4K resolution similar to the iPhone X. Moreover, technologies such as High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dolby Vision are also supported which ensures users can enjoy incredible-looking TV shows and movies on any HDR TV. The device has a built-in high-performance 4K video scaler makes HD content look better than ever on a 4K TV. To make things even better, it always outputs the highest resolution possible to allow viewers to get the most out of their TV. Some of its other amazing attributes include automatic screen detection and optimized setup for the best quality picture on any given TV screen.

Airplay 2

Airplay 2 is coming to iOS 11. With the new AirPlay 2, you can control your home audio system and the speakers throughout your house. You can play a song in the living room and your kitchen at the same time and adjust the volume in any room. You can also have your music start instantly on all your speakers — in sync with one another. This gives you much greater command over your media.

Coming Soon

We’ll soon be updating our apps to provide support for all the new changes. With PlayerXtreme and the upcoming enhancements from Apple, watching your media will be more realistic, more entertaining and more enjoyable. To sum it up, you’ll get an experience like never before!
