Impressive interaction with the device and improved access to whatever you want to watch/listen to. But we've found it glitchy already, like my keyboard on the MacBook Pro Retina, except that a reboot of the ATV4 resolves any hang times or weird issues. By issues I mean suddenly being unable to have an open menu, for example, on Netflix to be able to choose categories. Elsewhere the Search option has become compromised in other programs. It's a computer...with issues. But they're not grave and I suspect updates will eventually resolve things.
Great product, so much better than the previous versions and EASY to set-up!
It's amazing stuff I a lovely lovely Love it's!
The airplay is awesome.
Ignore the whiners who worry about android, Linux, Roku or whatever else they think is important to integrate with atv4. That is all irrelevant, as you would never connect those things to this box for any reason.
This media box has massive potential. If you want 4K wait. Simple as that, the next Gen will have it when the world is properly poised for 4K. When codecs, drm and all that fun stuff is set in stone it will surely be added and hardware adjusted in atv5. When providers offer 4K, just like HD it will become ubiquitous.
Now keep in mind this is an evolving firmware and software product. Like your iPhone, it will be improved and software bugs or shortcomings will be addressed on an ongoing basis for security and improved used experience.
In the latest tvOs, (April 2016) we see marked improvements with BT keyboard integration, and other helpful adjustments. You now have plex. I used it every day on my Mac/atv4 htpc. Yes it works like magic.
Kodi: yes you can side load it. It's a bit of a trick but no jailbreak required.
Jailbreak: yes. If you opt for not downloading the latest firmware update you can now jailbreak. It isn't a fully baked jailbreak but fire core will surely use the pangu exploit to make it even more tempting. Free channels and Kodi repositories are obvious benefits just for starters.
This is huge for so many reasons. The potential for the developer community is not even yet realized. People still use atv1 jail broken for the above mentioned reasons.
Now if all that is not enough, if you already have an apple ecosystem, AirPlay and gaming your already purchased games are free to dL and use on your set. Game controllers are also available.
Is it perfect? No. Nothing is. But the UI and the immediate and future potential is impossible to ignore. Atv4 blows away Google tv, boxee tv, all those useless, poorly executed boxes...
My only wish is that they ultimately make Apple TV and android tv a duel offering built INTO TV panels one day like CarPlay and android auto are in cars. That will keep the droid whiners happy and I won't have to read their posts.
Honest to god, upon owning this, you will quickly realize that you have 3 primary inputs. (1) your Apple tv4 (2) your htpc (3) your cable tv.
Soon enough #3 won't matter anymore.
Streaming and network providers, Apple Music, even google play music.
Forget the little tiffs about the remote and where it's usable. Eventually all these issues will be adjusted so developers will be able to use Siri remote within their own apps.
I suspect Apple is going to push harder than in the past with their tv connectivity. It took a long time to see this, but now that it is here, I'm a believer. Just because the competition is getting more and more refined as well, doesn't mean apple slacks on R&D and care into their products. Sometimes you have to release a product to the masses to be able to augment real world issues and refinements.
Given the products flexibility, there will be plenty of life for this product to evolve and stay relevant. It's simply a pleasure to use.
I had 3rd Gen Apple TV for about a year before this one came out. When I see the futures that this TV 4 had I sold the 3rd gen TV and couldn't wait till it releases. I do like this TV 4 but I do not like the Siri Remote.
1. Siri does not talk back and sometime can't hear you when you are in a movie and you want it to go back 10 seconds.
2. Interface is nicer and has App store but if you want to watch a movie with your favorite actor you have to ask siri. Example, you just watched a movie and you liked the actor and you want to see more. With TV 4 you have to find the name of the actor and ask siri. On 3rd Gen TV you simply click on actors name and it automatically opens the movies that the character plays on Netflix
3. If you don't care about these steps I'd recommend it but I went back to 3rd gen and super happy. Also the 3rd gen is cheaper than the Siri remote lol.
If you've ever had anything other apple products you might want them to work together - not so Apple! Forget about anything google, android, microsoft, amazon, or god forbid linux - the shit just doesn't work together by design.
Sure siri remote sounds cool - but the search only works on itunes - not netflix, not amazon prime, not shomi, ... Note - there is a netflix app but it's not integrated with the siri search. Amazon videos simply aren't possible at all.
If you're an apple fan - you'll love it. If you're expecting a revolutionary media device - this ain't it.
However, it is pretty slick. The hardware seems good quality and CPU power. And there's potential for the apps to become valuable - but right now there's not enough content for Canadians even with VPNs/proxies etc. There's a decent iphone app to control it but the siri remote sounds cooler than it is - in fact the trouble with it is that due to the touch sensitive portion it's not well designed for TV remotes that get stuck between cushions, fall on the floor, etc. It's too easy to accidentally make some cool gesture that messes up what you were actually doing.
I still have my roku3 for amazon and my xbox360 for content on my LAN.
I was given an apple Tv for Christmas and after using it for a awhile all i can say is it's AWSOME. The only thing you will have to consider is what size hard drive you want to buy. If you are not a heavy gamer or movie downloaer then go with the 32GB the 64GB would be better for you if your planning to download a lot of movies and games. I have yet to find anything wrong with the new apple tv it's an all around AWSOME product.
In comparison to any Playbox out there Apple TV is by far one of the best. Now that it's allowed Plex, Infuse and apps that allow you to play your "personal movie files" (downloaded) to be added to the homepage makes this by far the best Apple TV. I successfully played a 40 gig 3-d file through Plex with a few hiccups but insignificant in the over all viewing of the film. May have had to do with some settings. They are slowly bringing on Kodi (XBMC) which will all some more streaming functionality. The new wii style remote is a blast as well. We don't play video games but well I guess now we do. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 stars is because of the limitations on audio and video format decoding in the base Apple firmware. This of course can be upgraded with firmware but having searchable options for streaming movies in formats like Dolby Atmos, 7.1, 4K, ISO files maybe soon to come but isn't here yet. This room for improvement but much more versatile of a player with hardware that's expandable
Great product. Searching with Siri remote is amazing. Only wish setup for services like Shomi and stuff were a little easier, but once setup, is a great product.
Wow! Great product. So easy to set up with Bluetooth technology; connected to iPhone and all settings were done! Plugged into TV and the TV came on. Can control volume from remote. Touch screen is not easy at first but after using it awhile works like a charm! Tried Siri - will need to use this more so that it will recognize my voice but love the idea. Video is crisp and clean. Audio is awesome. So glad I upgrade my 2nd generation.
This is a great Addition to the apple TV family I think the prices should be a little lower. But All in all this is a great add on for apple TV. Love it its a must buy for anyone who love watching tv.
It is still a new product by Apple in the Apple Store hasn't got many apps for yet but they will be coming. The remote takes a bit of getting used to but it's a quick learning curve and I have a feeling siri will become much more functional once all the apps start flying in.
I think it's a great product works well with turbo flix so I can get American Netflix. It's a little rough around the edges right now but I think it is got a very bright future and will only get better as things start rolling in
Install was a breeze. Remote is too sensitive to inputs even when sensitivity setting is adjusted. Performs as advertised.
Text input is ridiculous and siri doesn't work for text input.
Apps aren't great yet.
Siri doesn't open Netflix and cannot use Siri for text input
Cannot connect bluetooth keyboard like you could on previous model
No optical audio port
Needs a few significant UI updates before it's worth it. The previous Apple TV is better than this for a smoother user experience -- for real! So surprised and disappointed that apple would release something that many would consider a downgrade.
Over all I see complaints of text entry. This is a first world problem for sure.. Over all this streamer is very slick if you like the Apple OS environment.
I would like it to have better SIRI integration.
Would be the silver bullet if could access an iTune library stored on a NAS
I gave it 4 out of 5 because of the cost.
Replaced existing 3rd gen device, install was a breeze. Overall look of apps is better but hate the remote - the touch pad is too sensitive, kicks in all the time (fast forword, reverse). Certainly like the idea of downloading more apps and tried a few but not much out there yet that is very worthy - will be nice when cable\sat tv guys their apps online. Like SIRI but could not figure out how to "run Netflix", "start Netflix", etc? Not worth the price premium so far.
Great TV when you want it. Many free apps and Siri makes it say to find movies or shows.
In General, it is good.
However, text input is terrible. you need to swipe through 26 letters in a single lineup. And it did not support connecting to bluetooth keyboard like the older generation. And you cannot speak out the word for searching while you are on the search page.
Apple need to think about this use case.
I BOUGHT THIS NIFTY PRODUCT TWO WEEKS AGO AND I AM VERY SATIFIED WITH PURCHASE. IT TAKE AWHILE TO ADJUST TO THE NEW REMOTE BUT IT IS VERY NEAT PRODUCT....
