• It's the only option for streaming iTunes content
  • Apple Music, HomeKit, and AirPlay further extend the box's usefulness
  • App-driven home screen is easy to understand
  • Fairly cheap for a high-end set-top box
  • Only platform that still lacks voice search


  • Outdated hardware translates to long loading times
  • Limited app selection
  • Remote is overly simplistic and depends on line of sight
