    I read a rumour a while back but judging by latest Target leak for Apple TV it isnt happening

    Why does apple not release a slimmed down Stick to compete better with Amazon and Roku? The box is way too expensive for most users. I get that its got a larger harddrive and ram etc, which is great is you play games

    But if you are only using it for TV apps you dont need all that, they really should make a stick with say 10GB for TV apps and simple games

    Then the box for the full experience

    I was looking at upgrading my old Roku (wont let me use Apple TV app on it), but I was waiting as I do like my ATV user interface better then both Roku and Amazon (i have all 3 on 3 different TVs)

    But if apple doesnt then I guess I will replace roku with another Amazon 4k stick for much cheaper

    Anybody know if there was any truth to the Stick happening

    Why make a slim down stick for TV when they have an TV app? I have a 65-inch Samsung 4K TV that I installed the TV app on and I am able to watch all of my purchased movies and I can rent movies just like I can with the TV box.

    Because the TV app is only available on the most current TVs. An eventual TV stick will cost much less than the TV 4K.
    By purchasing an TV stick people could ‘upgrade’ their existing TV without having to search for and spend hundreds of dollars on a TV.

    I have a Samsung and Sony and Westinghouse TV but they are all too old to get the App, My Amazon stick in the basement can, but my Roku in the bedroom can't. (ATV on main tv)

    Apple products are overpriced yet people (myself included) keep buying them. I don’t think it would be feasible for them to make an Apple TV Stick.

    I was just happy that our two Roku devices were new enough to add the Apple TV App. So perhaps getting a newer Roku box would be the most affordable way to go, in regards to adding the Apple TV app.
