Alongside the announcement of the new Apple TV 4K, Apple today in a press release revealed that users will be able to purchase the current 32GB Apple TV HD bundled with the new Siri Remote at $149.


The Apple TV HD provides many of the same features as the higher-end Apple TV 4K, but it lacks high-quality 4K HDR video and Dolby Vision support. Apple will continue to sell this lower-end model, now bundled with the new Siri Remote.

This new remote features a new clickpad control with five-way navigation, which Apple says provides better accuracy when browsing content on tvOS. Additionally, there's a separate power button that controls a TV's power, a separate button for mute, and Apple moved the ‌Siri‌ button to the side of the remote.

The Apple TV HD bundle with the new Siri Remote will be up for order on April 30, and available in the second half of May. You can read more about the new Siri Remote in our post covering the announcement.

On one hand, you'd think they'd discontinue this and just sell the previous version of the ATV 4K as the lower end model.

On the other hand, I'm glad they're still selling this because it means the ATV HD will be getting software support for a good while longer. There's a lot of them in service out there, some tucked in out of the way crevices.

Boo Apple! Way to go Apple! The love/hate relationship continues. :)

If they sold the remote separately that would probably cut about 75% of AppleTV 4K+ sales. ?
