......they extended the length [ longer time ].....to three years, instead of two years of AppleCare+.....one extra year.......


Apple Extends Standard AppleCare Plans for Apple TV From Two Years to Three

.....Apple today emailed customers who have purchased a standard AppleCare plan for their Apple TV devices to let them know that coverage has been extended from two years to three years.

Customers who purchased AppleCare for the Apple TV will be now receiving a total of three years of coverage based on the date that they original bought the plan. AppleCare for Apple TV end dates will be automatically adjusted.

In the emails, Apple does not specify why it is extending the Apple TV AppleCare plans, but it is likely because of the transition to AppleCare+ for Apple TV, which Apple made available alongside the launch of the second-generation Apple TV 4K.

AppleCare+ for Apple TV is priced at $29, with a monthly purchase option also available.



one more.....year.......?!

I understand AppleCare for an expensive laptop or Apple desktop. Laptops are easy to damage, Apple desktop are expensive to repair since they use proprietary parts.

I would never get a protection plan for a desktop PC where you can get inexpensive replacement parts from multiple vendors.

But for Apple TV, a small device with no moving parts, no screen to burn in, and it is under $200? I personally would never get extended warranty for this type of device.

YMMV of course.

If you live in an area with frequent lightning storms and the AppleTV is not plugged into a surge protector, AppleCare+ sounds like a good idea. Otherwise, not worth it.

Sounds like these AppleCare policies are rarely used, if they're extending an extra year for no $$.
