    I was foolish in not pre-ordering my 4K Apple TV 64gb last week and now they are all sold out. The 32gb ones are still available.

    For someone who mostly streams moves/tv/hockey etc. and who doesn't play many games, the 32gb should be fine shouldn't it?

    I need some reassurance that not getting the 64gb is okay.

    I don't think you'll find the 32 GB limiting, but with the new price structure I'd have a hard time justifying the 32 GB over the 64 GB price difference.

    The 32gb should work fine for most people, but you are right, only $20 more.

    You can order a large pizza or go for the 64gb make a decision

    $20 is not that hard to decide

    Now if it was $50 difference

    Wouldn't 64 be the way to go if you are at all thinking of streaming 4K?

    The file sizes will start to creep up to the 32gb limit, and it will have to redownload it if you stop watching in the middle and go back or you want to start from the beginning again or if. 64gb will probably keep it in cache. At least my old 64gb kept movies in cache if I stopped watching and came back to them later.
