Depends on what you want it to do and what apps you need. As a parent, Roku doesn't have YouTube kids, so that's a demerit for me.

Otherwise, Roku is a very simple and straightforward interface,with some nice additional features, like private listening through the iOS and Android apps.

I would probably spend a little more for a nicer Roku, since the lower tier ones are a bit sluggish. But if that doesn't bother you, you can get a base Roku for like $20

These are streamers. Most major companies who offer streaming services, they typically have apps for both.

I was a die-hard Roku fan, been buying them since their early generation products. I have three TV’s around the house, I upgraded to Roku ultras on all three. For some weird reason, on all three, at random, I started seeing HDMI compatibility errors. I have 18gbps 4K cables from monoprice. I do keep spare cables so I swapped them out, the error still appear at random. Last Thanksgiving (2021) micro center had an awesome deal on last gen 4K 64gb Apple TV’s for $99, I got one. Since then zero issues, using the same exact cable I was using with Roku. I am no longer recommending Rokus to friends. This is a good time to replace Roku #2 with this Costco ATV deal. I don’t plan to load a ton of apps or play games on ATV so 32GB is plenty for my needs.

They are worth it. Upgraded from a Roku Ultra to this exact Apple TV model and it blows it out of the water.

I have 4 Apple TV’s and a roku, unless you NEED an appletv, go with a roku

Looking back on prior release dates, the first gen ATV 4k came out in 2017, and the ATV HD came out in 2015. So, it's doubtful given that this was released about a year ago.

I got both recently and recommend either / both. $130 for sealed ATV4k 2021 on eBay, $25 for fire stick 4k max through HSN deal on here.

ATV4k 2021 is a no brainer if youre in the apple ecosystem: AirPods/Apple headphone pairing, HomePod pairing, Airplay, remote on phone and watch, highest quality ATV+ show/movie bitrate exceeding all other platforms. Performance is superior / feels snappier / higher quality remote. Generally apps are of the highest quality compared to on some other platforms, but in other cases parity. Simplified OS not ad overload.
I use it with my bedroom tv that has aging internal apps and had an ATV4 1080 hooked up until recently, for a 4k OLED tv haha.

...I think Alexa is probably more competent overall for searching content but Siri aint bad I dont use either much in that regard or rather havent used them enough to notice a difference for movie lookups...

I will say, the Fire stick 4k max is phenomenal value - outputs Hulu in 4k DV, ATV Hulu app is 4k HDR. and if youre heavy on amazon stuff for content, I think fire stick obviously is the path to go since its made with that in mind of course.

Hulu app sucks though in general, android TV version is only 4k SDR wth?

...And the performance is pretty good for such a cheap stick, like shockingly. But again, tvOS is smoother just the nature of the beast. Fire stick works better outputting DD over optical audio vs. my internal apps on my Sony some only output stereo. Not sure how well ATV fares on that one since its not on my 5.1 receiver setup (fire stick is on living room tv) but its beamed to a large HomePod next to my bed.

Plus with Fire stick, you can turn off HDR or toggle DV to be HDR for problematic content. I think its more granular than ATV. And definitely
More granular than internal apps


ymmv but just some insight

I have three or four around the house. I've been looking to swap one of the original Apple TV 4K with the newer models. I'll hold off for now though.

similar performance
Apple TV has faster CPU, more RAM, more internal storage, and has a rechargeable remote.

Rechargeable remote alone makes it worth it to me. I'll never get another device that requires putting in AA or AAA batteries, and go hunting around for batteries.

This. During black Friday, ordered something on sale the day before black Friday as advertised. On black Friday it was even cheaper by like $10-$20. Costco did the price adjustment on their own without needing to call them

Are these worth it for the price? Or would a Roku accomplish similar functionality for less?
