New ones are only £55... and a new one is due in June.

New ones are £59 and its been rumoured for the last year or two that "a new one is due any time now"....

Two certainties in life, death and at some point Apple will release a new version of an existing product

Can U watch anything On the box??

There's very little reason to get this, I've had two of them until fairly recently when I upgraded them to Amazon Fire TV boxes which run rings round the Apple TV in terms of vastly better hardware and more/better apps like Plex, Netflix, Amazon Prime video among others

So what advantage is one of these over say chromecast ?

AirPlay.

AirPlay is the only reason to own one of these, if you are not going to use AirPlay then there are vastly better boxes, if AirPlay is important then these are great

Comment AirPlay.



And what is AirPlay ?

I thought that was just apples name for putting the photos and videos from your iPad to your tv ?
As I can already use the chromecast to do that with my iPad

Chromecasts are way way better. You can AirPlay on a chromecast just downloading one free app

I think Chromecast is the dogs b**locks.

jailbreak it an puts xbmc on it

This thing is kind of dated now but i make the most of it with Netflix, HBO Go & PremierLeaguePass. I'm hoping for App Store and HEVC support on the next one.

New apple tv coming in the summer. Hold on

I have apple products but other than HBO why is this better than a chromecast? TV cast app let's you cast any website from your IOS device in chromecast?

Plex connect works well on these.....I have one and use daily, but I prob woulndt get one again given the Android boxes that are getting better all the time

Great little device, just bought one but from john Lewis with 2 yr guarantee for £59, saw this refurb though and this is the cheapest price it's ever been so bargain!!

You are able to mirror your apple device with one of these. If you own apple products then this is better for you than a chromecast, roku etc.

Are you using a VPN or a DNS change?

Are you using a VPN or a DNS change?



I use Unblock-Us (DNS), costs £2.70 pm.

Apple TV does not support VPN on the device itself, obviously.

As ever, these work best when you have an Apple eco system. Then the whole caboodle knocks spots of the android and amazon attempts. This and Apple are due to launch a 4K/5K TV box within a few months.

The price.(_;)

Apple TV is awful. Sold a 2nd Gen to some wally on evil bay for £95.the brand name sold it tbh but it's a waste of time

The 2nd gen. was the last model that could be jailbroken, hence the high price (pre-jailbroken models can easily sell for £200+ on eBay).

As said, the decision is easy. If you use Apple kit, get this. If you don't, don't.

The reason you sold a second gen for £95 is because it's jail breakable. In really, they can sell for up to £150 though

You can't this is 3rd gen, and also XBMC is called Kodi now.

i know what its called but most know it as xbmc as the kodi builds are still new and not stable for all addons

Seriously? Wow, I want one.

I was happy to off it for £95. If you can jailbreak it fairly easy then worth it . Not for me

You can't jailbreak it. This is 3rd gen, last one you could jailbreak was 2nd gen.

For someone who has other Apple devices this works much better.the Air play and mirroring on this is better and more advanced than whats available on Chromecast.
Amazon Fire TV is excellent,but it also costs twice more that Apple TV.

Airplay on Apple TV is superior to "casting" via Chromecast.with Chromecast there are limitations and much more lag.this wins for people with other Apple devices who want to transfer their screens to TV.(Mac,iPad,iPhone).
For peopke without Apple devices,Amazon Fire TV or Roku 3 is the best.

I wish i was that wally.

I've got the lightning HDMI cable, and one for the macbook so if you're not bothered about wireless mirroring then it's a cheaper option. This is a pretty good deal though, as you can just mirror cartoon HD or movie tube for latest TV shows/movies without the need for 2nd gen Apple TV

Amazon Fire TV is available for £79

Tempted by are these better than a chromecast / Roku? I have both and neither work. 20 meg broadband, lots of devices that stream no problem, where the chromecast and roku buffer like crazy, the YouTube app doesn't even load and hangs on the logo and the WiFi in the house dies whenever try and use these. Tired upgraded router same problem...

wonder if this would be better.

I found the quality on Chromecast for streaming videos from the web and iPlayer wasn't amazing too.

I found it worked well for Youtube videos though, and using an app called "Videostream for Chromecast" I found if you have a high quality video already saved to your android phone or tablet, and you use the app to cast it to your TV, then it worked quite well.

It also works well for showing photos on your TV if you don't have a Smart TV, I just uploaded camera photos to Google+ (privately), and using Google+ photos on Android you can cast them too.

Sorry But specs are below average = Cold from me, a lot better Android box sets around with way better specs than Apple, if this was in a lucky bag I wouldn't touch it because it's useless and lags.
