The best Apple TV deals for Christmas 2016

The best cheap Apple TV deals available right now

The Apple TV is a neat device that turns any TV into a Smart TV and you've come to the right place if you're looking for Apple TV deals. Actually at this time of year, we're expecting those discounts, especially as Apple won't want to lose any more ground to Amazon's Fire TV range.

You'll be able to stream online content from major apps like Netflix and the iPlayer, and there's a huge wealth of App store and iTunes content to enjoy on the big screen too. There's no native app for Amazon Instant Video though as the two companies aren't getting along.

The newest fourth generation Apple TV (aka the 2015 model) usually costs around $149/£139 for the 32GB version, so you shouldn't pay any more. We'll run through the best deals for the 3rd and 4th generation models below. The older models have been discontinued and don't offer much value, so we haven't included them in the roundup.

Apple TV 4th gen (2015) deals

The newest 2015 version of Apple TV is on sale now and is seen as the best yet in the series. An updated remote control with a touchpad and a Siri-friendly microphone will make iPhone users feel right at home. There are 32GB and 64GB models available. The 32GB Apple TV should be enough for most users, especially if you're mainly going to stream media.

Apple TV 3rd gen deals

You can save a lot of money if you're willing to opt for the older third generation Apple TV. This was the first Apple TV to feature 1080p, so you're still set for full HD loveliness. The remote control is a bit dated compared to the new Siri-friendly one on the 4th gen machine, but you still have the option of using the AirPlay app on an iPad/iPhone instead. There's no on-board storage, so this model is strictly for streaming only. This version has an optional optical out audio connection - a feature cut from the 2015 model for some reason.
