As above anyone saying it’s not a deal could be right but if you were in the market for an Apple TV you may reconsider

Do thay do streaming? Or is it just stuf you buy?
So happy to hear this .. with the Apple TV+ coming out with great shows I was not going to buy an Apple TV box as I’ve already got a fire stick.
This will do me nicely. Save me from having to get a Roku.
This could be great, if you can airplay through the app?
Can you Airplay?
Is it 25mbps bitrate like it is on the ATV4k boxes? If so i might finally start purchasing some streaming movies.

Thats something i dont think i will do, buy digital copies. no physical copy obviously for a start and the platform can make get rid of it if they wanted to. I think one of the streaming companies did that fairly recently, made a movie, purchased by people, not playabale/deleted and i think refunded people.

You can buy a massive HDD and back up your iTunes movies using a Mac which will still work if they delete it from the library. Not an ideal solution, but at least there is an option to back them up.

I believe it needs to be played through an Apple device signed in with your Apple ID. I haven't done it myself, just remember reading about it when this subject came up previously.
I saw earlier this morning someone had posted it as a deal and was getting unessessary flack for it. It's since gone. Does anyone know who posted it? They seemed to have a great looking theme on their firestick and I wanted to ask them about it. Cheers.
Strange that it is only available currently on Fire TV Sticks and not Fire TVs.
A Cnet news article covering this said no Airplay I’m afraid.
