RadioShack (yes, they still exist) offers the 4th generation Apple TV and a 6-ft HDMI cable for $119.98 plus $5.95 shipping. The only way to dodge the shipping charge is to find it in-stock at a RadioShack location.
The promo page lists the HDMI cable as a $20 value, but that’s not realistic. For example, you can buy a similar AmazonBasics cable right now for only $5.02. All told, you’re looking at an overall savings of about $29. That’s the best current deal for this streaming media player, but we’ve seen it lower. During Black Friday it was $112 and this past weekend you could snag one for $100 if you were quick enough.
TV is a major part of our lives. We gather together around our big screens to watch big shows and big events. Yet somehow, the overall experience of TV has continued to stagnate. Until now. It all starts by recognizing that apps are the future of television. HBO NOW, WatchESPN, Netflix, Hulu, iTunes — apps are quickly becoming how we watch today. So we built a new foundation around this vision — with a new operating system called tvOS, innovative ways to connect with your screen, and a smart use of Siri to search for something to watch. This is the new Apple TV. This is where television is headed.
