    what are the caveats, if any, of buying a used Apple TV 3?
    does the previous owner need to release it from their account?
    are there liens against serial numbers for unpaid iTunes purchases?
    Any advice would be welcome. Since the ATV4 came out, ATV3's are a good buy, used, and all I need is a box to AirPlay with an iPad
    thanks

    Just make sure the device works.

    Don't worry about previous owner's AppleID account (and linked charges). You'll be using your own AppleID account when you set it up.

    good question, just ask the seller to double check and ensure they're signed out.

    With iPads/iPhones if their icloud is logged in then it will automatically activate findmyiPad and their account is permnanently signed into the device.
