Apple TV 4K supports the following video and audio file formats and codecs. Before playing a Blu-ray on Apple TV 4K, 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 4K playable formats is a necessity.

As you can see, Apple TV 4K supported video file formats are very limited, Blu-ray disc or even the decrypted Blu-ray rips can’t be supported by Apple TV 4K. 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 4K friendly format. The best solution is to rip and convert Blu-ray to iTunes compatible format, then sync to Apple TV 4K for playback without any limit. Below is how to.
