I want to get one to try it out, but I don't really need one. My Roku Ultra LT and Roku Streaming Stick 4k are still working fine.

Re: The Apple TV Thread

Even though I have Apple TV+ for free through T-Mobile, every time I open it on my browser it wants me to pick a $9.99/month plan or a $99/annual plan. Um, no. I just click away amd move on. It's okay, but I'm concerned someone in my family will click it.

Re: The Apple TV Thread

Having one of everything, Iíd say the Apple TV is the 2nd-most used streaming device. I mainly use it for Apple Music, and Airplay from my phone or iPad. The NVidia Shield with Kodi does pretty much everything else I need, especially with SmartTube (ad-free YouTube.)

I'm signed in, but it keeps happening. That said, I'd been signed out for a long time. I dunno. It's weird.

Here are a few 2-month free trials for Apple TV+. These should be able to be used even if you've used previous trials; however, I think you cannot use them if you have a currently active subscription.

Re: The Apple TV Thread

Got this email today from Netflix. What's up with this?

Hi Decker,

You’re receiving this email because you’ve used Apple TV (2nd generation) and/or Apple TV (3rd generation) with Netflix in the past. Unfortunately, we’re sunsetting support for these devices on Jul 31, 2024. We know this can be frustrating, but we’re doing this to ensure you maintain the best possible Netflix viewing experience. You can still enjoy Netflix with our latest features on thousands of TVs, phones, tablets, and computers, including all newer models of Apple TV, like Apple TV 4K. We're here to help if you need it. Visit the Help Center for more info or contact us. The Netflix team

The 2nd and 3rd gen devices are 13 and 11 years old now. They donít even run tvOS. The surprise is they supported them this long.

Did you ever password-share your Netflix account?
