Apple TV review (2015): A huge leap forward, unless you want 4K

 

The new Apple TV offers the most refined streaming interface yet, with a remote that's a step ahead of the competition. Its voice search actually works well, and even at this early stage, there are plenty of worthwhile apps and games. If you need 4K...

New interface is refined and attractive ; Siri remote is a much-needed upgrade ; Voice search works well ; Solid app and gaming support

No 4K support ; On-screen keyboard is still clumsy

So was the wait for a new Apple TV worth it? After spending a week devouring content and making it the centerpiece of my living room, I'd say yes. Its refined interface and remote, along with the best voice search implementation I've seen, puts it a...

Apple TV 2015

 

I've never been that impressed by Apple TV. I found the 3rd generation one from 2012 too basic, and the Chromecast took its place as my streaming solution of choice in 2013.

Interface is easy to pick up ; Siri Remote works well ; Voice search and control brilliant

No 4K support ; Sparse app store ; Parental controls need tightening

The app store currently lacks content and its gaming credentials are a little suspect, but the new Apple TV is a brilliant new way of interacting with your TV and will keep you glued to a big screen instead of a small one.

Apple TV review, updated: A better listener than ever, especially for Apple fans

 

The latest Apple TV box is about half a year old, and since it first appeared the company has been hard at work adding apps, fixing pain points and making Siri a better listener. Check out all the updates here.

Apple TV delivers the most polished video experience today, with speedy reactions and a familiar yet attractive interface. It has the best remote on the market. Siri voice search is excellent, and useful voice commands add unique capabilities. The...

Apple TV costs more than similar devices like the Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast for basically the same core functions. There's no dedicated app for Amazon or any other a la carte video service beyond iTunes.

Apple TV's awesome remote and voice control make it one of the best entertainment devices, especially for anyone who already owns plenty of Apple gadgets.

Apple TV review: is this the future?

 

"The future of TV is here." It is not the world's most understated tagline for a new product, especially one from Apple. If you want to set sky-high expectations around a new TV product after years of rumors, well, that's how you do it.

Siri works well for TV and movies ; Really fast ; Games are a fun addition

Siri is extremely limited ; Have to log in to every app individually ; No 4K support

Apple TV 2015 ( 64GB)

Apple TV review: Packed with potential

 

The future of TV is here. Well, that is the supposed promise from Apple. But with 4K competitors such as the Amazon Fire TV upping the resolution stakes and Apple sticking to its Full HD guns, can the Apple way compete? As a day one device the new...

Apps and games aplenty, Bluetooth game controller support, Siri universal search

No 4K support, no iPhone app, no Bluetooth keyboard support, app discovery could be better, Siri search doesn't work for music

As a day one device the new Apple TV feels a bit half-baked, especially in light of the strengthening competition. And as it's taken a couple of years for a refresh to appear, so we feel Apple should be a step ahead of the game.

Apple TV (2015) review

 

No longer a hobby — Apple's new set-top box means business

Third-party games and apps ; Stable and responsive ; Siri could be a game-changer ; Very fast, easy set-up

Lacking some key apps ; Siri Remote can irk ; No 4K support

Finally wrenched into the present, this Apple TV is a solid update that’s brimming with potential.

Apple TV Review (2015): Living with big-screen Siri

 

Shouting back at the TV used to be frowned upon; now, with the fourth-generation Apple TV , Apple is positively encouraging it. The Cupertino firm's take on the future of the living room has released Siri from its iPhone and iPad prison, while a new...

My old TV had just two HDMI ports, so I had to be selective about what I left plugged in. Even now, with more inputs to fill, I still limit myself to two set-top boxes. The new Apple TV has replaced its predecessor in one of those ports, but it hasn’t...
