Apple’s TV streamer costs more than most other streaming sticks and boxes from the likes of Roku, Amazon and Google — even with the upgraded 2022 Apple TV 4K launching at a lower price. But if you’re all in on the Apple ecosystem, it could be worth it for you. With the convenient tie-ins with your Apple ID, iTunes purchase history and Apple services such as Apple TV Plus and Apple Fitness Plus, Apple fans are likely to appreciate the Apple TV’s user experience.
Given the comparatively high starting price, hunting down a great Apple TV deal is a good idea. We’ve rounded up the best Apple TV deals currently available below and organized them by product line so you can grab the right device for you.
Best Apple TV 4K deals
If you have a 4K TV at home and want to take advantage of it, the Apple TV 4K is for you — though this current moment is an unusual time to buy one. Apple just unveiled its 2022 model but it won’t ship until November. In the meantime, the 2021 model is still available via third-party sellers with some hefty discounts.
The 2022 model has an upgraded A15 Bionic chip powering it, HDR10 Plus support, as well as double the storage as standard. It also starts at $129, down from the previous $179 starting price, though you’ll need to punt for the $149 model if you want Ethernet — something previously included across the board.
If you don’t think you’ll benefit from those headline features, the 2021 model is still a solid buy, especially with some of the deals currently available. It comes in two options, one with 32GB of storage and the other with 64GB, and runs Apple’s A12 Bionic chip. It also includes a Siri Remote and Ethernet support.
This is the newest Apple TV 4K with the all-new (and vastly improved) Siri remote to accompany it. This version is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip to help maximize speed and app experiences. At $70 off, you’ll have a hard time ever finding a better price than this.

The 64GB Apple TV 4K offers extra storage if you’ll be downloading a lot of content or installing various games and apps. The more capacious model has a similarly massive discount to the 32GB model at Walmart and Amazon.
Best Apple TV HD deals
With the unveiling of the 2022 Apple TV 4K, Apple killed off the Apple TV HD. The move makes sense given the new lower starting price for the 4K model and the fact that the Apple TV HD was essentially a 2015 piece of hardware with a 2021 remote. The A8 chip powering it was getting a little long in the tooth, plus UHD TVs are way more accessible these days with a plethora of 4K TV deals available at any one point. You can, however, still snag the Apple TV HD if you want to spend as little as possible on an Apple streaming device.
Walmart has $70 off the most recent Apple TV HD, which is a new record-low price for the fifth-gen device. If you don’t yet have a 4K-capable TV set or you just want an additional Apple TV for a guest bedroom, this is the one to go for. Otherwise we still recommend the 4K version.
Best Apple TV Remote deals
In 2021, Apple released a new Siri remote that ditched the previous generation’s design and trackpad and brought better buttons, making it much easier to use. One of the great things is that you don’t need to upgrade your Apple TV in order to use the new remote: You can seamlessly connect it to your existing Apple TV.
If you want to keep your existing Apple TV but despise the remote, you can ditch the somewhat annoying trackpad and upgrade to make the experience better overall. Right now you can save a few bucks on it at Amazon.

Refurbished Apple TV deals
The advantage to buying a refurb directly from Apple is that you can save some cash on the purchase and you still get a full warranty should any issues arise. If there aren’t many brand new Apple TV deals around, it’s a good option for those wanting a recent model at a discount.
Apple supply of refurbished Apple TVs can vary. Right now, it is only listing 2021 Apple TV 4K at $109 for the 64GB version. Since that’s only a few bucks lower than Walmart and Amazon are offering it for brand new right now, it’s not the best option.
