We had an older generation appletv that we liked but needed a second one for a second tv. We tried Roku but it is much slower and not as smooth transitions. Apple products are great and this is no exception. BTW, if you want amazon or bravo just stream it on your iphone then shoot it to the appletv.

Best Apple TV Yet. Siri Search is Awesome.
I've had Apple Tv for the last 3 years and I own a Fire Stick and a Roku and several 'smart' Tv's and DVD players. The Apple TV has ALWAYS been better than all the rest of those devices. And the new 4th generation AppleTV is amazing. Speedy and I love the unified search. I wish I could afford to replace my other AppleTV, Firestick, and Roku with this device. I do wish I could get my Amazon Prime Video on my Apple TV easily. But I understand Apple and Amazon are in the same content provider business so that won't happen soon. Siri Search, Apps, and games make this a definite recommendation for anyone.
Love my new apple tv
Item was originally purchased to go under the tree for Christmas. My husband and I were so excited that we opened and started using it promptly. Love the changes to the remote... system seems to load more quickly than the original. Would definitely recommend upgrading to the newer model if you haven't done so already.
love the features
I have been watching these for a while and finally got one. We set the mood in our house during partys by playing te Pandora app music while we view the photos from our PC on a slide show. You have to install itunes and link the pictures to the itunes and your Apple TV will detect it and use the pictures as a screensaver. Great feature. Have not bought any Apple TV contenct yet, but have also sued the screen mirroring feature on our iphones to display pics and videos from our phoone. just a couple of the features so far, but I know we have a lot of playing around to do with it to really get some good use of its capabilitiys. So far so good.
Love it! Much better than Roku
A few glitches and one main complaint which is probably not Apple's fault. No Amazon app!!! Yikes. I just bought movies with Amazon that are now worthless. Great product though and typical Apple style. Easy to use and nice user interface. Much cleaner than Roku.
good streaming product
this is an Apple product, so you know it's good. just a couple of cons: (1) the remote has a couple issues. the touchpad is too sensitive and takes you places you didn't intend to go. I prefer buttons to the touchpad. BUT the voice activated rewind and fast forward is da bomb! greatest thing ever on a remote. want to rewind 13 seconds? just ask. want to FF 14 minutes and 2 seconds? just ask. most remotes get you close, this function is exact. (2) you cannot get the AMAZON app on Apple TV, they consider it a competitor to iTunes (!). so if you have cut the cable and want one device to stream ALL services, Apple TV will not do that. sad. I have to use my Blu-ray player to access the Amazon app, and that is much slower than the Apple device. I also have a Roku 3 on another tv and you can get ALL the apps on that. it also has a voice search function, but not enabled for rewind and FF. too bad, get with it Roku :o) I use the Amazon, Netflix and Hulu apps every day (but never iTunes), so I use the Roku as my #1 device. but the Apple TV device is still awesome, and I'm glad I have it.
Getting better. Controller needs a little work.
I love Apple TV but this new generation has one thing I actually have issues with and that's the new controller. It feel less substantial than the original. Don't get me wrong it does exactly what it is supposed to do but it just feels weird. The clicking action feel like it is barely connected, like you can pull it apart by accident. Now for the good. The games integration and Siri make an already good Apple TV a better Apple TV. Music, tv, movies all run smooth, 1080p is perfect. 4K is not necessary at this time so it's a good deal. Most movies come with digital copies that are iTunes compatible. I think the next generation will copy the Amazon echo and have Siri always on and it will really be the beginning of home integration.
Great Compliment Product For Your Apple Devices
The huge benefit of this product is that you can use the Apple AirPlay. It allows you to stream anything from your iPhone, iPad or Apple computer right to your TV. Mine worked right out of the box with a very simple set up. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the control. The touch pad is too sensitive and the voice recognition does not work that well
Good Upgrade From Prior Generations
Upgraded from third generation to fourth. I like the sleekness of the fourth generation and the fact that you can delegate which apps you would like on there vs a standard template. I am hoping that there will be many more updated/compatible apps coming out in the future. The touch remote takes a little getting used to as it is very sensitive to touch, and be advised as always these devices do no come with HDMI cable. Seamless compatibility and set up with your iPad and/or iPhone.
Perfect companion for any Apple Product.
This is fantastic, it has great Apps that are ready to download and use. I also like that it can control my tv. My tv powers on and off with my apple tv. I am also able to adjust the volume of my tv from the apple tv remote. It is one less remote to use. I also like the air play ability and the fact that it can send the audio to any bluetooth speakers. Finally I really enjoy using siri, she understands me about 85% of the time. She saves enough time to make it worth using first and if it fails to just do it yourself. Overall an excellent improvement from my Apple TV 3. The price is still a little high for the features, but if you are already immersed in the apple ecosystem, its worth a buy.
