> AirPlay 2 support will vary across manufacturers in terms of functionality.
> However, at the very least, it will allow users to stream video, audio,
> photos, and more directly from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to supported smart
> TVs. HomeKit support is also coming to many of these TVs, enabling users to
> control volume, playback, and more using Siri or the Home app on an iPhone,
> iPad, or Mac.
> Samsung announced that its latest smart TVs are also getting an exclusive
> iTunes TV and movie app for accessing the storefront.
> Apple is widely expected to launch a "Netflix-esque" streaming video service
> later this year, and AirPlay 2 support on leading smart TVs would make it
> easier for users to stream Apple's original content on the big screen without
> an Apple TV. Rumours suggest Apple could introduce the service within the
> first half of 2019.

> The news has also dissuaded me from upgrading my fourth generation Apple TV.
