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...

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

 

The new Apple TV is well worth the wait, but the lack of 4K could be a dealbreaker for some.

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

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...

Apple TV review: A diamond in the rough - very rough

 

The fourth generation Apple TV feels like the start of something big. But right now there's so much terribly wrong with Apple's latest set-top box, it's hard to know where to begin.

Access to the iTunes library ; Enormous potential ; Voice search (when it works) ; Puts AirPlay on TV

Terrible remote ; Limited app selection ; Problematic Bluetooth ; Painful service setup

Review: Fourth-gen Apple TV with Siri Remote and tvOS App Store

 

From iPhone to mid-level DSLR cameras, the video production world has many options for the amateur and prosumer videographer. Blackmagic's Pocket Cinema Camera offers users a next step into the pro video world, along with pro video challenges.

The Siri Remote with touchpad works great ; Universal search finally makes it easier to locate content ; The App Store and iCloud integration are off to a promising start ; Game controller support is already better than on iOS

Siri doesn't support the App Store or Apple Music — yet ; Why no iOS Remote app support ; At $149, some may want to wait for more cord cutting incentives

For now, before the tvOS App Store has time to grow and mature, and before Apple has a chance to work out some of the kinks and bugs on the fourth-generation Apple TV, the main question for prospective buyers should be: How invested are you in the...

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 (4th generation) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The latest iteration of the Apple TV doesn't look widely different on the surface - it's larger than the previous version, and with a sleeker looking remote, but it's what's under the hood that counts. With the introduction of a dedicated app store and...

It works

 

Simple to set up. The remote controller is easy to use and becomes second nature to navigate.

Much Improved!

 

The OS is much more stable. Our old one would only stream for 10 minutes before crashing.
