The Apple TV is an excellent streaming video box, especially for Apple fans who will use AirPlay and the upcoming iTunes Match service, but it's missing a few key apps like Hulu Plus and Pandora.
Apple TV is a gorgeous gateway to Apple's world of movies and TV, but the absence of major apps at launch hampers its appeal in the UK.
While it's a step behind the Roku and less cutting-edge than the 2015 Apple box, the older Apple TV remains an excellent streaming box, especially for those invested in Apple hardware and the iTunes ecosystem.
The second-gen Apple TV is an appealing prospect, but we'd like to see a lower price tag and more UK content.
We like the simplicity of Apple TV and the attractive user interface. If Apple issued a software update to add support for more video formats and started selling hi-def content on iTunes, we'd snap it up in a flash. As it is, though, it has limited appeal to those that live exclusively in the Apple universe
The new Apple TV isn’t a must-have upgrade if you’re happy with your current streaming setup. But it’s hard to say no to when you’re ready to get a new streaming box. In the mean time, get the new Siri Remote on its own. Trust me, it’s wroth it.
