Is it worth getting an Apple TV if I already have a Viizio smart tv with hulu plus, netflix, amazon, YouTube? I would like iTunes and hbo.

    IMO yes. The interface is so much better. Especially if your committed to the Apple ecosystem, things like AirPlay and if you use iTunes as your media server. I have a Vizio smarttv and I think the interface is slow and clumsy. Much better to buy a non-smart tv and add an AppleTv. Way better experience. Typically aren't smart tvs about 100 bucks more anyways?

  • Yes. I have a Smart TV with everything built in, plus a Blu-Ray player with everything built in, plus a Roku3 with everything built in. But the ~$100 I spent on the Apple TV was totally worth it for iTunes, apps for ABC and FOX that none of the others had, iCloud access, and AirPlay and screen-mirroring from my iPhone. I wish I would have bought one MUCH sooner.

    And the remote is so cute!
