    Can ATV4 show me how much storage space I have remaining?

    I only have the 32gb version. I downloaded/installed a LOT of apps tonight. There's gotta be close to 100 on the home screen.

    Just wondering if I should exchange it for the 64gb version.

    It won't tell you, but it'll warn you if you get low. And in the settings you can see how much space each app is using.

    Don't worry about it though, Apple TV doesn't operate in the way we're used to when it comes to storage space. Apps have a small initial download size, then anything else they might need is downloaded after that (it'll mostly be games that do it.)

    That extra downloaded content is marked by the system so that if it gets low on space it will delete whatever extra stuff you haven't used in a long time and install whatever the new thing is. If you ever need what was deleted it's downloaded again automatically.

    Basically the only benefit of the larger storage space is that you will be downloading things slightly less often.
