Very tempting but my Apple TV is way under utilised
Also, the TV app opened up to only 7 angmo countries to date

I plan to buy it as soon as it's available. I bought a number of movies for my kids and I use it to rent movies.

Siri still is not usable for the ATV4 unit in Singapore...WTF
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

Will get it once I get a 4K screen or projector. Upgrade of existing itunes movies to 4K is sweet!

Youtube will only playback at 1080p on this box. The codec Youtube uses for 4k isn't compatible with this apple TV.

Is the price of movies in iTunes cheaper than amazon? If yes, I don’t mind since they release so fast

Looks like still not supporting Atmos and DTS-X.  Nvidia already has that.
