  1. Spot on, Bob.

    I love my ATV4. The sole reason I got it was for Air Video HD which works beautifully. Will ATV4 get better?—certainly.

    The lack of 4K is a non-issue for me, although for some it is. No doubt a future version will support it. My only, albeit minor, gripe is the lack of an optical output. Although arguably not an elegant solution, a simple HDMI breakout box can address this issue.

    I also hope that the UK broadcast majors follow the BBC’s lead in short order and make their catch-up services available asap. The BBC iPlayer app looks like a seamless part of the ATV4: a beautiful piece of design.
