Or getting a free shower for the family once you get out of the swimming pool instead of being charged £2 per person.

Well effective cost is £59 as most retailers sell the £25 for £20 throughout the year. I use iTunes cards all the time for magazine subscriptions etc. effectively 20% off.

Sure sign they have excess stock and a superior version is imminent.

Brilliant. Have been wanting to buy another one of these as I left my last one with the now ex wife. That £25 has just swayed my decision in waiting.

Earlier this year, Apple offered a similar $25 gift card promotion that … Earlier this year, Apple offered a similar $25 gift card promotion that sparked speculation about a possible imminent launch of an updated Apple TV. These rumors turned out to be false, and Apple is still selling the same third-generation model that saw its last substantial update in early 2012. Though this latest promotion offers a $25 gift card, the Apple TV still retails for its original $99 price tag.



Maybe the case that a new model is coming, but no real way to tell. As always: buy it if you need it.

Nice box but for £60 on ebay you can get xbmc on an android i6 box that literally has everything on it for free. Movies tv shows and sports.

Very nice, heat.

I know someone that has one and the streaming quality is terrible for sports , I'd rather pay and have sky sports had which I do

xbmc has airplay.

Airplay on xbmc is very poor and only works with a limited numbers of videos

what's the difference between this and a NOW TV box?

It has Netflix for starters. It really depends on what other products you have, lots of Android devices? Get a Chromecast or Roku, got alot of Apple devices? Get a Apple TV.

I have one of these and use it a lot for streaming media from my pc, Ipad and Iphone, the Airplay and mirroring options are good too. The rumours are that Apple have delayed their new Apple TV until next year to try and get more media deals done so this will keep you going for a while yet.

If you are in the apple Eco system they are great otherwise as above other options for you.

Not really, they gave away ATV's with Mac's for a while last year, they've dropped the price and done a ton of other deals in the last year or so and this is a promotion for the Itunes festival. Not every sale or deal is sign of new devices. All ATV fans want a new one to come out but Apple are having issues with getting media deals done so the rumours are it's been delayed until 2015.

Brilliant deal.

Good price but the official price drop and included voucher are a sure sign a new version is imminent, perhaps to be announced in September.

not neccessarily, any improvements they can implement in iOS updates and have done adding apps over time.

in any case if your already in the apple eco system this will always be a handy device to stream other devices directly to your big screen and wont be defunct should a new model appear in 6 months.

i have an Apple TV 2 and the only difference is its 720p not 1080p, doesnt make a difference to me and the price of them never dropped prior to this model being released.

Apple TV 2 is actually worth more than the Apple TV 3 since it can be jailbroken but the 3 cannot. Check out how much 2nd hand ATV2s go for on eBay . I'm only speculating on a new model coming soon, but it is an educated guess; usually Apple only drop the prove on their products when there is a new improved version about to be released.

I've got an ATV2 and have no desire to upgrade.

You may as we'll buy a brick, better spend more money and get a Prometheus box

Just checked the T&C on the site, this offer is valid till September 30th, so anyone worried they will announce a new one in the annual September Keynote (Which hasn't been announced yet) can wait and see. I doubt it will happen this year, I've been wanting to get one for a while primarily to hook up iTunes match to my amp easily, and my PS3 sounds like a plane about to take off when I use it for Netflix.

I would agree with most comments, if you are invested in the Apple ecosystem then this is a great product, if you have Android phones and tablets then look elsewhere this is not for you, a Chromecast or Roku might be better for you.

Great deal, great product, thanks

good price if you want one.
Good for streaming from your Itunes Library, etc.

But the best part is that you reconfigure it to connect to USA version of Netflix, Hula, HBO Go, etc.

Opens up a whole new level of content.

what you mean is illegal streams that could be shut down at any point. Dubious bitrate quality and for non technical people can be quite fiddly or daunting menus... oh & if you know where to look, you can actually find them boxes for less than £40 shipped from the far east.

They are Apples & Oranges :P
Both have their uses in a media enhanced environment.

I am a bit of an Apple devotee purely because their stuff just 'works'. I have had two of these and find them glitchy and unusable. If I try and stream content from devices (Macbook, iPhone etc) I get a lot of dropout and need to restart apps etc to get them to reconnect. Furthermore the interface and controllers are decrepit in their execution and takes ages to find anything.

This is a pretty poor product if you are look to do the above things - I would suggest a better media server or cheap nas/computer/ps3/capable blu ray players instead. The only thing it is good for is if you are one of those mugs who buy ALL your content through iTunes.

AAaaargh bought a refurb for £59 yesterday.

Hot anyway

is there really any benefits on this over chrome cast ?

Any idea when Amazon Fire is out?

Yeah you and every tech blog looking for click bait.
People have been clutching at straws regarding a new Apple TV since the day after the last one was released.

You realise that to be able to stream stuff to an ATV, it goes through your router first? That sounds like the cause of your problems if you ask me, so maybe look into sorting that out.

The best thing is you can stream (Air Play) your iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac to it... Also stream just music, so if you have decent speakers at your TV, it means you don't need a bluetooth stereo etc.

Got one, like they say its great in the Apple Ecosystem, sitting around with friends air playing YouTube music videos to the TV over Airplay was great.

However it doesn't let me play videos from my PC or Synology NAS which was a big turn off, ended up by putting a WDTV and a Roku for that. On balance, prefer the WDTV.
