Apple TV+ Review

 

Apple TV+ is impressive from a technical standpoint, but its current library of original content is not competitive with that of top-tier video streaming services.

Growing content library still can't compete with established rivals ; No apps for Android or game consoles ; Web interface is bare-bones

Apple TV

 

Released in March, Apple's third-generation puck ($100) retains the form factor of its predecessor while adding 1080p playback. The real draw remains the same, though: seamless integration with iTunes, iCloud, and the rest of the Apple ecosystem.

Streaming Star

 

The 2012 version of Apple TV has the big feature we've all been waiting for: Full 1080p HD output from iTunes and Netflix.

1080p, finally. Purchases from iTunes are stored in iCloud for syncing across devices. If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you can stream your tunes and playlists from iCloud. Use AirPlay to stream from any iOS device, or from any iTunes library on...

Similarly-priced boxes (like the Roku 2 XS) offer more streaming services. Can’t remove or rearrange icons in main menu. 8GB storage is for caching only, and you can’t side-load content through the microUSB port. Remote is too simple and too easy to...

Apple TV (fall 2010)

The competing Roku 2 offers more streaming services, including Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, and Pandora. The new AirPlay mirroring feature seems cool, but doesn't currently have much practical use. And the upcoming Roku LT will offer much of the...

The Apple TV is an excellent streaming video box, especially for Apple fans who will use AirPlay and the upcoming iTunes Match service, but it's missing a few key apps like Hulu Plus and Pandora.

The new Apple TV is a lot like the old Apple TV, at least functionally. You get the same limitations and the same plays-well-with-others* behavior (if by others you mean Apple products and iTunes). Technically, the new Apple TV is a significant...

Apple TV+

 

Inexpensive. No ads. Web browser support. Offline downloads on iOS. Good accessibility options.

Limited, hit-or-miss content at launch. Missing interface features. No apps for Android or game consoles.

Apple TV+ is impressive from a technical standpoint, but its current library of original content is not yet competitive with that of existing top-tier video streaming services.
