    Rumors are starting about a 5th gen Apple TV this year. What would it take to make you buy one?

    I'm assuming most would say 4K but for me I don't need that.

    What'd be your killer feature to get you to drop some $$ on one? What model(s) do you have already?

    For me it depends on what value it adds. If the 5th gen offers 4K and I've invested in a 4K television I'd likely buy one. Otherwise the ball is in Apple's court to wow me with some new feature I can't live without.

    I'm not interested in 4K as my to is mostly used to watch Sponge Bob

    I can't think of anything more I need from my TV but I'm open to the change.

    Whether it be a spec bump for gaming, or the ability for 4K content, that still wouldn't convince me to upgrade. I honestly can't think of something that would make me upgrade. I pretty much use it for streaming video.

    I currently have the original Apple TV (yes, still in use) and a 4th gen. If the 5th gen supports 4K, then I'll get one. Many of the monitors and video walls I install are 4K and I'd have to get one just to show that off. :-)

    I'm still happily using my ATV2 so I won't quit using it until it quits working.

    Nothing would attract me to it at the current moment. I have the ATV4 and am very pleased with it.

    Like the others, I can't think of anything that would cause me to rush out and upgrade from my current 4th generations TV to a 5th generation model. I'm not going to say I wouldn't buy one, but I can't think of anything that would make it a must-have item.

    Hmm, thats a good question. I would also agree with you about the 4K support. While it would be nice. I think most people are still keeping their 1080p TVs for a little while. 1080p is still plenty clear. With regards to features.. I'm pretty happy with whats on the table at the moment. I think it would be cool for Apple to drop the 32GB model and just have a 64GB version? I know this isn't a feature but maybe a different colour option? While the black definitely looks good. I like having colours in the house. Obviously the standard spec bump in the GPU and CPU category.

    I think having more options and lowering the price to the minimum possible.

    Giving it more Offline options and maybe PiP and PoP options, due the amount of new TVs ables to connect to any kind of network maybe some multiple simultaneous stream options.

    That would be great.

    I'm keeping my Apple TV 4 for now, not thinking of buying new one
    1080p is still pretty decent.
