Buying a new streaming device means choosing between a few options, but for those who live within the Apple ecosystem, there’s really only one that matters. The Apple TV is a great streaming device, and the addition of the App Store and all its games and apps makes the Apple TV a great entertainment box as well.

As good as it is, we have to admit that there are streaming sticks and boxes that are much cheaper than the Apple TV. Thankfully, deals are sometimes available on a number of different Apple TV variations. There are still a couple to choose from, so make sure to pick the one that best fits your needs. They’ll all stream content, but they have different storage specs, Siri remotes and resolution support. Unfortunately, some of the older models are becoming increasingly difficult to find, but they can be good options if you can find one in stock and are looking to save a few dollars. We’ll be updating this list of deals as prices change and stocks fluctuate, so be sure to check back if you don’t see the right deal for you just yet.

Best Apple TV 4K deals

If you have a 4K TV and want to take full advantage, the Apple TV 4K is for you. The 2022 model that went on sale late last year has an upgraded A15 Bionic chip, HDR10 Plus support, a USB-C Siri Remote and double the storage of the standard model.

This 2022 Apple TV 4K has been our recommendation among the tech giant’s streaming boxes, as its significant processor upgrade should provide more longevity. 

Apple TV 4K 2022


The 2022 Apple TV 4K features a modern A15 Bionic processor, more storage, a new USB-C powered Siri Remote and a lower starting price than prior models. If you want an Ethernet connection, you’ll need to spring for the 128GB version.

The latest 128GB Apple TV 4K is listed at its full price in most places, with only B&H Photo offering a slight discount. This version has double the storage of the entry-level model and has a built-in Ethernet port. 

Although it’s now a generation old, the 2021 Apple TV 4K is still a decent option, especially when you can find it on sale. Unfortunately, it’s getting a little hard to come by since it was discontinued by Apple. We do still see deals pop up occasionally, and we’ll update this post as we find them. This model comes with either 32GB or 64GB of storage, and it runs Apple’s A12 Bionic chip (similar to what was in 2018’s iPhone XS and XR). It also includes a Siri Remote that charges via a Lightning port, and the Apple TV box itself has Ethernet support as standard.

The now-previous-gen Apple TV 4K model is getting harder to find since it was discontinued last year, and it’s currently unavailable even at Amazon. That might change if new stock becomes available, so if this model is on your shopping list, be sure to check.

The 64GB 2021 Apple TV 4K is still available at Amazon with a discount, although you might be better off choosing a newer model if you want the latest chips inside.

Best Apple TV HD deals

With the unveiling of the 2022 Apple TV 4K, Apple killed off the Apple TV HD. The move makes sense given the new lower starting price for the 4K model and the fact that the Apple TV HD was essentially a 2015 piece of hardware with a 2021 remote. The A8 chip powering it was getting a little long in the tooth, plus ultra HD TVs are way more accessible these days, with a plethora of 4K TV deals available. 

Unless the Apple TV HD is deeply discounted, you should avoid it.

We’ve seen the Apple TV HD on sale for as little as $59, which was a record-low price for the fifth-gen device and made it a decent option for those wanting to spend as little as possible on an Apple streamer. Right now the Apple TV HD is unavailable and there’s no telling whether that situation will change, unfortunately.

Best Apple TV Remote deals

In 2021, Apple released a new Siri Remote that ditched the previous generation’s design and trackpad and brought better buttons, making it much easier to use. One of the great things is that you don’t need to upgrade your Apple TV to use the new remote. You can seamlessly connect it to your existing Apple TV.

Apple gave the remote a minor upgrade with its 2022 Apple TV revision, dropping the Lightning charging port in favor of USB-C. Functionally, both last year’s remote and the 2022 USB-C versions are identical and work with the same Apple TV devices.

If you want to keep your existing Apple TV but despise the remote, you can ditch the somewhat annoying trackpad and upgrade to make the experience better overall. While there are no direct discounts on the USB-C-powered remote right now, you can nab some freebies at Best Buy where a 30-day trial of FuboTV is thrown in, as are three months of Apple TV Plus and four months of both Apple Music and Apple News Plus for new or returning subscribers. Want to pay the very least? You can save a dollar at Amazon, but the freebies are probably worth the extra at Best Buy.

Refurbished Apple TV deals

The advantage of buying a refurbished device directly from Apple is that you can save some cash and you’ll still get a full warranty should any issues arise. Apple’s supply of refurbished Apple TV models fluctuates, with devices dropping as low as $99 at times. However, Apple doesn’t have any refurbished Apple TV devices currently.
