The Apple TV 4K has never been cheaper on Amazon. The 32GB version of the device is available now for $130, which is $49 less than its retail price of $179. The 64GB is $150, also $50 less than retail. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for Apple’s premium streaming boxes.

Devindra Hardawar gave the 2021 Apple TV 4K a 90 in our review, noting that its revamped Siri Remote with more physical controls was a big selling point. We found its directional pad easier to use for making precise selections compared to the previous remote’s touchpad. You can even use the pad as an iPod-style touch wheel to scroll forward and backward through a video. Siri interprets voice commands well if you don’t feel like exercising your fingers.
Although there are plenty of cheaper streaming devices on the market, we think the Apple TV 4K is the best premium option. It supports Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and spatial audio, and it runs on an A12 Bionic chip (which is also used to power the third-generation iPad Air and iPhone XS). You can use AirPlay to share videos, photos and more from your other Apple devices to your TV. There’s the ability to view a live feed from HomeKit-enabled cameras and control smart home devices via Apple TV 4K, and, if you have the relevant subscription, an ever-growing library of games available via Apple Arcade.
Of course, the main reason most people will choose an Apple TV 4K is to be able to watch shows and movies. The device supports a plethora of streaming services including Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, ESPN, Disney+, Sling TV, Hulu, and Twitch.
