    mm...if this does not work:
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT200197
    contact the apple resellers like iStore (Glorietta 2). For a fee, they can diagnose the unit. It may still be repairable.

    Finally gave in and got myself an Apple TV 4k this weekend. I just love how the zapple ecosystem works especially on the remote as ive already invested on the phone, tablet, watch and Macbook. They work very seamless.

    But ive yet to discover the other apps in this device.

    Sorry for this old question. I wanted to try vpn thru Apple TV. However, i wanted to download Hulu from the appstore but I just see the Ph store. How do i change the country in the tv to download it?

    Mm...TV OS: under general and region. If Hulu is still hidden, activate your VPN like Getflix (set up the DNS to recommended). Restart your Apple TV under settings, systems, restart.

    Is it still okay to buy the Apple TV 4K now? Or just wait it over perhaps there is a newer version coming? I have the HD version and the feeling of not maximising my 4K Smart TV is haunting me. Hehe.

    I just use my Apple TV HD solely for MLB and NBA league pass streaming since Samsung TV don't have a native app for both. Other apps like Netflix, Apple TV+, and etc, I go straight to the TV's native apps.

    i always look forward to apps being compatible with the apple tv ; the ease of use of the apple TV remote makes it all worth it. much easier to use than the standard remote for any smart TV in the market. I also find the apple TV interface friendly

    mm...still not a lot of 4K content yet and therefore, it should not be used to justify the jump to 4K streamers. However, it is safe to invest in Apple 4K ATV since the next upgrade, I think, is 8K and, as with 4K, it will take quite a number of years before that becomes a standard (for both hardware and content). Major content provider Disney announced plans that it will no longer provide 4K releases (physical media) for all its movies. That’s a bummer.

    If your TV can’t process Dolby Vision or HDR10, then just stick with your Apple TV HD.

    My ATV 4K's LAN port conked out after a lightning storm a few days ago. Hope this is covered under warranty.
