The best streaming box you can buy

from finder.com.au

Apple's upgraded 4K-capable Apple TV has a slick interface, quick response and more apps than any competing set top box or smart TV. This is the new standard for a set-top box that others now have to beat.

There's very little separating Apple TV 4K from the herd

from Canadian Reviewer

Apple TV 4K is an awaited update and a faster and more capable set-top box. It is the ideal device for longtime iTunes users with larger libraries of content who want to move to the 4K Ultra HD space.

Ambition, meet reality

from Ars Technica

Not everyone needs a new streaming box this year, but the Apple TV offers a much better interface and a wider range of apps than you’ll get on the majority of smart TVs or gaming consoles out there.

Apple Insider

An impressive extension of the iTunes ecosystem to the living room

from Apple Insider

The point of the Apple TV is an insertion of the Apple ecosystem on a user's television, as integrated as possible into Apple's services. That's what's been promised with the Apple TV 4K, and that's what's been delivered —regardless of techies' complaints about X obscure feature missing from the device that only a minute portion of the audience really cares that deeply about.

Still patchy, but Apple’s best streamer yet

from Alphr

Apple has achieved quite the feat with its latest Apple TV. By thinking laterally and removing the financial pain of migrating your favourite files to 4K, Apple has created a huge incentive for current and former Apple fans to consider buying one. In a market dominated by sub-£100 streamer sticks and set-top boxes, that’s no mean feat.

Almost perfect

from Engadget

The Apple TV 4K packs in almost everything the last model was missing, and its push towards making 4K releases cheaper is noble. But there aren’t many third-party apps supporting the new format at launch, and Apple also made some curious decisions that might make some serious home theater enthusiasts hold off.

Finally feels like it’s found its feet

from Expert Reviews

I genuinely feel Apple TV 4K could be a turning point in demystifying 4K for the everyday consumer. Apple TV 4K will never replace my Sky Q box simply because it doesn’t have access to the same range of content, but with the release of the 4K model Apple TV it has become a more viable complementary product.

A high fidelity powerhouse

from Time

The $179 Apple TV 4K finally delivers gorgeous high fidelity video, but as usual, you're paying a premium for convenience and ease-of-use. The way the Apple TV 4K integrates with the other Apple-powered devices in your home is its most distinctive argument, but one that depends increasingly on a fanbase with deep pockets.

Steps to a 4K HDR future

from Mobile Syrup

Unless you own a 4K TV, or more importantly, a 4K TV with HDR, the upgrade to the new 4K Apple TV is not necessary. If you're interested in being on the cutting edge of video technology, however, then this is the set-top box you've been waiting for.

One powerful, but pricey, streaming box

from Tom's Guide

The Apple TV 4K offers an attractive, customizable interface and affordable UHD content, but design flaws and a subpar remote hold it back.
