Pointless when you already have a smart tv.
4K, Pointless when most people have speed less than "upto" 4Mbps ADSL.
Can't even do FHD on "upto" 4Mbps.
Also need 4K screen.
Also need uncapped else OOB will bankrupt you.

If that Smart TV has Airplay and Apple Music...sure.

And access to the entire iTunes Store.

Nope? Thought so.
Lol move to a more open system then. My Samsung smart tv has access to Google Play Movies and Deezer for music with Google Play music also hopefully coming soon.

It is possible to stream full hd on 4megs , obviously depending how far you are from the box

Yes you can... if you compress the life out of the HD, the more you compress the greater the distortion artifacts.

Netflix knows a thing or two about HD:
To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have an HD plan, then set your video quality setting to Auto or High. Titles will play in HD as long as you have a connection speed of 5.0 megabits per second or faster.

What urks me is that they didn't drop the price of the previous model. Buy an old 64GB, pay R3699. Buy a 4K, pay R3999.

Yes, I was aiming to buy an old model Apple TV for cheap.

Google (I assume) opted to stop supporting YouTube for my Samsung smart TV. Can't even use the old app anymore.
