    First order of business after setup will be to download apps and try out that new remote with siri. I believe the 3rd party apps are the primary feature of the new appletv that will move this platform forward and we are only seeing a taste of what is to come. I'm ready...long overdue for the refresh.

    I'll be looking to use Airplay connection with Amazon Prime Video.
    Since I can't expect the Amazon Prime Video app to appear anywhere on the old or new Apple TV
    Good Luck

    I'll be testing out Siri first to see how effective it really is and see what 3rd party apps are available

    Hopefully good voice input and control using Siri and casual gaming for my young kids.

    Bluetooth Headphones with the new Apple TV.

    I have a toddler and have been using bluetooth headphones with my Dish DVR (90% of time it worked perfectly as well) however I'm cancelling my TV service if I get my hands on this. Currently I either have to use bluetooth with Dish or use closed captioning with volume really low and this was the final issue I had with Apple Tv 3.

    I'm also curious to see what apps will be available. I'm not big into gaming however I do hope that this opens the door to games my child will enjoy later on (hope it will be this generations nintendo, maybe wishful thinking) and I do hope that within three years that Apple Tv will be able to take on current PS4/Xbox One (and yes by that time they will have newer versions possibly). After all I read somewhere that the A8 or this years A9 was as powerful as a PS3 I believe. While I'm not big into gaming I am a battlefield fan and enjoy the occasional GTA game.

    I'd love to see some new apps for productivity and photo/video (something that would truly shine on a TV) and hoping for that more than gaming.

    And if anyone reads this and is considering cutting the cable here's what I have and why I'm doing so:
    Dish Hopper DVR with 120 channels and HBO, Starz, Epix, Showtime (think that's it) for around $120 before tax

    For the stand alone price for Netflix, HBO, Hulu & Showtime and TV Season price of the shows watched in my household ranging from $20 to $50 a SEASON I'll be saving almost 50% of my bill yearly. It'll cost more when new seasons come on (unless I wait for them to hit Netflix or Hulu) but for a whole year I'm saving half on my bill.
