It’s a good time to buy a high-end media streamer. Amazon is selling the latest Apple TV 4K at a record price $150 for the 32GB model, that’s $29 off. However, the 64GB model is also on sale for $170 – an easy choice if you need extra storage for apps and games. We’ve seen Amazon sell the base model at this price occasionallybut rarely with a similar discount for its high-end counterpart.
The newest Apple TV 4K fixes some of the few issues with what was already a powerful media player. The new Siri Remote is much more intuitive, and the faster A12 Bionic chip enables both 60fps HDR video (for the handful of content that supports it) and better gaming performance. living room device you want if you’re interested in more than basic media playback, especially given Apple’s tight integration and robust app ecosystem. You can enter a Fitness+ workout, control your smart home, or use a niche streaming service.
Apple TV’s main caveat remains the price. At $150, it’s pricey if you just want to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, and other mainstream services. You can buy a Chromecast, Fire TV Stick, or Roku player that will handle 4K HDR video and some other popular apps for a lot less. If you’re heavily invested in Apple products or just want the most powerful media box you can get, this is still an obvious choice.
