Just Ordered Updated AppleTV

I've been getting along with an old hand-me-down AppleTV that's becoming obsolete. Took the plunge and updated to the new model today. That means Apple should be releasing an out-of-cycle unplanned update that makes popcorn too.

You and me both -- I'm going to be doing that tonight; looking forward to it.

Hmm, just last week I plugged in an old AppleTV (version 2, maybe) for the first time in a couple of years. The goal is to watch Disney+ content on a TV that is not smart enough to offer Disney+.

My new-to-me, mid-2010, MacBook Pro does not seem to communicate with my version of AppleTV. That's okay, I can use the iPhone 6S for that.

Given that I seem to be pretty content with old technology, any good reason(s) to upgrade the AppleTV? Asked another way, what is prompting the new purchase?

thanks, Todd's old, creaky keyboard

Don't bother upgrading unless you:

- want to watch 4K content
- want to subscribe to Apple Arcade
- need support for an app(s) your Apple TV won't support



It is what it is.

I also ordered one. I have 2 AppleTV 4K versions and 2 older models one of which is used in exercise room. Unfortunately the Bluetooth is less reliable than the updated models so...new AppleTV 4K on the way. I’ll shuffle them of course so the newest model is attached to my new 78” LG OLED where it will shine it’s brightest.



Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.
I’ve added some recipes and spiritual thoughts as well.

I've never owned an AppleTV, so this one is on my radar.

I'm wanting to try ATMOS fare, on the cheap somehow.

I won't be buying any A/V capable receiver.

So maybe the ATV and a pair of HP minis, I dunno.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Davemachine, I believe Bluetooth is only used for game controllers and remote. You could use the old silver AppleTV remotes (which is IR) with the older AppleTV’s

Forrest, bluetooth on the AppleTV is also used for headphones and for connecting to the Apple Watch for using Apple Fitness+.
