Is an Apple TV 4K Box Worth It in 2024?

With the steaming wars still raging in 2024, people continue to ask if an Apple TV Box is worth buying. So here are all the benefits that an Apple TV 4K box offers to help you decide whether it’s worth buying or not.

Is it worth buying an Apple TV 4K box in 2024?

The Apple TV 4K (3rd generation) box comes with a lot of benefits that make streaming smoother and justify its pricing. But whether it’s worth the money depends on the consumer’s needs.

The Apple TV Box comes in two variants – 4K with 64GB of storage (in Wi-Fi), and 4K with 128GB (Wi-Fi + Ethernet). The 64GB model sells for $129 and the 128GB will be available for $149.

For that price, the device offers the following features:

  • A 2.93 GHz processor with an A15 Bionic chip that has a 5-core GPU and 16-core Neural Engine for a smooth lag-free experience.  
  • A powerful 4 GB LPDDR4X SDRAM
  • 4k resolution support along with the ability to play videos in all formats including MPEG-4, MPEG-2, H.263, H.264, H.265, VP8, VP9, HDR10+/HDR10/HLG with HEVC, AV1 and Dolby Vision, and HDMI Quick Media Switching (QMS) for seamless transitions.
  • A next-gen Siri-powered remote
  • Color calibration (through other devices as well)
  • Big-screen FaceTime
  • Overall ad-free experience
  • Access to Apple Music
  • Access to Apple TV+ and other streaming apps including Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, and several others

For a price of $149, the Apple TV box certainly provides a premium and optimized viewing experience without any lag whatsoever. The Siri remote feels great in hand with a sleek metallic design. So yes, the Apple TV 4K is still worth a buy if all these features are useful to you.

It could be argued that Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max also offers similar features and is much more budget-friendly compared to the Apple TV box, with its biggest 16GB model selling for $69.99. But the Apple TV box is an upgrade in every way, and it isn’t an expensive product compared to others that Apple has to offer.  

If a Fire Stick user is satisfied with how it works and what it offers, then they may not want to switch to an Apple TV box. You could wait for sale periods to get it at a lower price, however.

Rumors suggest that a new generation of the Apple TV Box will be launched in 2024. So if that happens, then the price of 3rd Gen should drop, and you’ll get it at a bargain.
