User-Friendly

The Apple TV 4K elevates your entertainment with stunning picture quality and seamless integration into the Apple ecosystem. Its user-friendly interface, access to a wide range of apps and services, and the convenience of Siri voice control make it a fantastic addition to your home entertainment system. Show details

How to watch? Pay more of course

Apple TV was easy to set up using an iPhone and existing Apple ID. Just point the phone at the tv. But Apple have never played nicely with their neighbours so your experience might be different. Once in I found the content mainly an excuse to gouge more money for very overpriced content. Ancient movies are still pay as you go, as for sports, who needs an additional subscription to American soccer. As for original content, Ted Lasso is apparently about as good as it gets. Trial cancelled just about immediately. Show details

No Cable to Charge Remote

The 3rd gen 4K has switched to USB -C which if you run apple devices you don't have as they are lighting. So you will pay top dollar for one of the most expensive media players but no way to charge the remote unless you spend more. None of this is disclosed on purchase and once you open the box there is a tiny note in the instructions ( not included ). So your car doesnt have a steering wheel which you will figure out when you first try and use it. Called Apple support - it is all my/customers fault - why would you expect a cable and the thing to be usable? They also said it isn't cost saving to which i said ' ok,please send me a usbC cable' - no.

Poor app and website

My girlfriend has an iPhone 12 and used Apple TV to rent Saw VI for $4.99 which allows 30 days until you first start viewing it from which point it is only available for 48 hours. She rented this on her phone using the app however, there is no option to be able to Chromecast it to the TV. We then tried the website on my Windows 11 computer so we could watch it on something other than a little phone screen, where after successfully logging into her account we found that searching Saw VI found no results, nor did any of the Saw movies even though we had been watching the last 5 over the last few days. How incompatible can a multi-billion dollar company be in 2022? Money grabbing, rich ***ts who can barely do their job properly. Show details

So easy to use with apps

The apple box is a great product so easy to use with my iTunes account and apps are easy to install and navigate , the Siri feature is amazingly helpful , I love that you can charge the remote with your apple cord elevating the need to replace batteries. My only annoyance is the remote touch screen is really sensitive and can sometimes be frustrating to use . Show details

Apple TV very glitchy

So Apple TV pixelates badly, stalls images and overlays next section. Regardless of using wifi6 or 1Gb LAN, 500Mbs fibre optic connection. It's just a terrible service. Regardless of using appt TV app built in to TV or using 4k amazon firestick. Show details

Great for updating older high end 4k TV's to atmos

If you're an android user but won't be using atmos I wouldn't bother with it. My wife is in the apple eco system so setup was easy for me.

Great to use as a medium between your tv and atmos soundbars as all the streaming apps have atmos enabled if you pay for that tier.

Only down side is you need to do a hdmi bandwidth test every now and then to avoid the dropping out. Show details

Keeps dropping out

I’ve had 3 Apple TV boxes and loved them. But this is so frustrating. It keeps freezing and dropping out, even when other streaming services are gone, so it’s not the internet. I only bought it to watch Apple TV+ but that’s really not good enough to merit the spend. If you don’t have a smart TV then perhaps but otherwise a waste of money. Show details

Android TV Set-up A Hugh Waste of Time

I took a look at what's on offer on Apple TV and liked what I saw. Already had the app on my Smart TV so I thought I would give it a try. Setting up is very difficult compared to other streaming services. Had to create Apple ID, so I did. I then had to create a payment method. Then tried to log in and was then advised that I also needed an ITunes account. It's a wonder they didn't want me to buy an Apple Mac as well! Decided to give up and deleted my Apple ID. Then gave Paramount Plus a go. Extremely easy to set up and lots of good movies and shows. AVOID APPLE TV, IT IS AN ABSOLUTE JOKE!

Great Streaming Box. Not a big upgrade on previous version

Great for streaming. The remote gas been improved from previous versions. It has a comprehensive app store to install apps from. Very little is free most you pay for. The sound output is true surround. Build quality great. Best suited for iPhone users. I had an older 2nd gen version and this is a big upgrade. Show details

I purchased the Apple 4K TV (23/03/20) specifically to get KAYO.
The Apple 4K TV cost me $249.00 & after I set it up, updated the firmware and got into the app store it lists every other app in the known universe but not KAYO. Why would this be happening?

do I need to buy a 4k Apple TV for the Apple TV

You can purchase the New Apple TV remote offered separately, but it comes with one. It's the one with the trackpad - the one that most people on here are aimlessly complaining about.
