    With all the talk focusing on the "New ATV" nothing is really being said about continued use or any type of updates to the V3 & V2 units.

    I'm thinking the 3rd generation will see an update for its OS next week... the 2nd generation I think still has value for being jailbreakable... both should still be useable for a year more...

    The ones I have right now would probably be EOL for me in 2-3 years. They work great for what I need them to work for.

    There may be updates to the OS for the older TVs, but nothing of the magnitude of what v4 will be. With 6 grown kids with their own families, I am sure that I can find a home for the units that I am replacing.

    I just need to see whose name is on the yellow post it note on the underside of each device.

    The same thing I do with my 2007 iMac. Use it.

    I'm hoping it includes Apple Music.
    I just find it a little off putting that the Gen3 didn't even get an honorable mention durning the Keynote ...

    Just like the 3rd Gen iPad... a 'red headed stepchild'...

    It's pretty out of date to be honest. With the weaker processor and all, it's probably best that they don't really touch it. I don't want it to be like an iOS 7 on an iPhone 4 experience.

    It did. They mentioned it would still be offered for sale for $69.

    So no Apple music for the Gen3 ...
    Apple TV - Compare - Apple
    So what do we do with our old ATV versions?-screen-shot-2015-09-19-6.32.37-am.png

    Well Gen 3 served me well but if there's a Black Friday deal on the new one, I'll be jumping on it. I suppose I could always use the older unit for a secondary TV set or maybe pass it on to my roommate. Very excited about the new ATV. This was long overdue. On the software, I agree that even though Gen 3 may not run on TvOS, it will see some sort of update.

    I would have thought so too but I hold out hope. There's a lot of these units out there and if Apple is still going to sell it at a reduced price, some love and attention is still expected. Not a lot, but some. I know they have to roll out the red carpet for the new one so their attention is on that.
