Just treated myself to a new Apple 4K TV...never got on with the first version so never really used it; this one is superb with a fantastic rechargeable remote.

 

Simple set up and links to everything; it has fantastic screensavers which are fascinating moving arial shots, brilliant while listening to the radio

 

I downloaded Netflix and I'm using my ex wife's account for free...please don't tell her.  :ph34r:

Please educate me on this - Assume that you need to have a 4K TV to enjoy the benefits?

 

My TV is a 10 y.o. Sony LCD, still an awesome picture quaility with Blu Ray, whilst it still keeps going, am loathe to pay for an "upgrade".

 

I run the "standard: Apple TV through the Sony and whilst the operation of Apple TV is in my opinion clunky and streaming speed variable (Australia - the third world when it comes to internet speed), overall quality is good.

Looks like my Sony TV is the equivalent of a steam engine then........bloody hell, hard to keep up with advances in electronic gadgetry these days.

I've got a Sony TV a bravia, 10 years old, my latest Tivio improved the quality on the screen a little.  I once had a Sony Trinitron TV, i got 25 years out of it.  Some of these hi-tech devices aren't designed for that.

doing an upgrade cycle

sony 4K TV , apple TV 4K and now downloading a bunch of movies in 1048 HEVC format for max quality.

 

Gotta say I like the Apple TV 4k - the voice feature really works and helps me find content in a  really large library.

 

Haven't tried with porn yet....but the days early.

Maybe Kodi is the way forward for you guilty, but I'm not sure of the legality of the box in Aus.

We have the amazon fire stick in the UK and can be tweaked for kodi as well, £40 voice controlled with Alexa, cheap as chips.

Mines a Bravia too, bought it when they were pretty much the latest thing (at least here. lol) and it is superb, as you would expect from Sony.

 

Will research the Kodi....

Once you step foot in the Apple Eco system, you end up buying into the whole thing, computer, phone, tablet, etc.  It starts getting to be a very dear do.

Yup ...so true 

How much is the new 4K TV box ?

No one had much good to say about the last one 

 

I have just upgraded to Smart TVs and they are preprogrammed with Netflix Tube etc and connect wirelessly to the WiFi ...is there any benefit in having the 4KApple TV ?

 

I have Kodi SetTop Boxes but they are bloody temperamental

I'm in the Apple eco system so it was a no brainer for me; I have a couple of IPTV boxes in Pattaya mainly for New though as LJ says they are a bit of a pain. I don't have the time to fart about with them so Netflix, YouTube, Sky and my apps are enough for me.  :)

Well I've dabbled with Kodi in the past, first time I messed with it took me days to get things set up 55.  I appreciate what your saying Petesie :-).

...before it starts to disappoint and you move back to fairly-priced and more flexible options. As for Kodi, I think it may be past its' peak...lots of people being hit with 'cease and desist' by the big corporations that own content and the people that do the hard work on buids for it are getting pissed-off with people selling their hard work for profit on Kodi sticks.

It now passes as a media player however the lockdown by apple limits what you can do! A gig end android box like a minix or the nvidia shield can do the same and more!

I’m not an apple basher but the lockdown of it makes it average in my opinion!

You can actually install Kodi on your Apple TV which is what I have done.
