Never had the Fire. That said, from what I’ve read the Fire is more limited in apps it supports and sound formats it outputs compared to the Roku. If it’s just for AppleTV maybe that doesn’t matter but I get the sense that in the long run a Roku also offers more flexibility.
I watch my iTunes purchases via the AppleTV Roku app. I have some issues with the user interface, which I find frustrating compared to Vudu, but the picture quality and audio quality are excellent.
Clearly no. But the target audience won’t spring $180 and they will $50. It’s not my money so I don’t get a say. I have noted for years that it’s clear to see how Apple is losing sales like this but first time real hand experience in action.edit. Never mind.
Do both devices have the same full functionality as the ATV 4K?
I was just looking at the same roku unit.
I have been using both a Roku Premiere 4K (in our master bedroom) and a Roku Express (at my parents' home in rural northern Michigan) with the Apple TV app quite a bit lately. The interface isn't quite as good as a true Apple TV box, but it's gotten better since it was launched. As @Adam Lenhardt said, the video and audio quality are excellent.
I'd love to know the number of paid Apple TV+ subscribers this free trial generated. I'm sure Apple will never share that, but would be interesting nevertheless.“Apple TV+ for Free: Dickinson, Servant, For All Mankind, Snoopy and More | TVLine”
I've heard the shows are good. But as for me, and I think my immediate friends, we're all overloaded with streaming content as is. Even at $5/mo, well I've got Disney+ for that price. Sure, AppleTV costs a third what Netflix costs, but Netflix has *so* much content I love. And Amazon Prime is basically free, coupled with the shipping program.I'd love to know the number of paid Apple TV+ subscribers this free trial generated.

This particular subscription service just isn't generating the kind of buzz I expected. I really like the Morning Show, but not much else. And that's not even included in the free trial.
It's about time! While they are at it, can they PLEASE create a user friendly interface? I have "added" titles to Apple TV+ but have yet to figure out where they are. Favorites? A queue?
