    Probably the 32GB is sufficient for me. I don't see myself installing a ton of apps.

    If I get it it'll be the 32GB. Maybe after using it for awhile I might see a reason to go higher, but I don't see a need right now.

    Unsure right now. Is the storage limited to apps?

    64gb. Extra $50 is nothing. Rather not risk the headache.

    Will we be able to sync pictures to the new apple tv? I like that feature of the first gen apple as I don't want to put my pictures on the cloud.

    I'm predicting & budgeting to be about 220-230 incl GST & eco fees for the 32gb for us in Canada. Could be wrong; but with the dollar in the dirty toilet, wouldn't be surprised.

    32 for the bedrooms. 64 for the main TV. I'd like to know what kind of apps we'll be seeing so I'd have a better idea of space needs, but I think it prudent to have more capacity on the main TV. The current one has what 8GB???

    I'm wondering if it's really worth it for me at $230 Canadian dollars. I mostly use it for AirPlay and a little Netflix. I already own an atv3 and Amazon Fire TV.

    32GB most likely.

    With Netflix, Plex, and something for Popcorn Time, etc, I'll probably have enough local storage for apps, since everything else will be streamed.

    Probably 32GB. I'm not sure what I'd use 64GB for considering all media will be streamed.

    64 since I am sure it will push all of my photos and video to it if I turn on iCloud drive.

    Apple TV apps are limited to 200mb anyway for anything bigger they have to pull resources on demand from the cloud and can only store them temporarily on the device.

    64GB. There's no such thing as "eh, that'll be enough storage."

    The limitation for app size is 200mb with no local storage (all apps have to store stuff in icloud). Assuming it's similar with iDevices in that 32gb = ~26gb usuable/free, thats space for at miminum 130 apps. I'd be real curious to see anyone make use of that or more.

    As I've told my mom a million times when she asks why I need 64GB instead of 16GB on an iPhone, it's not necessarily that I need 64GB. It's that I know I'll need the 17th GB on the 16GB iPhone. Haven't had any issues with storage on my 64GB iPhone 6. My 32GB iPad, however, is a different story. Some of the games are huge: The Simpsons Tapped Out, 859MB; Final Fantasy 4, 489MB. Keynote, 543MB; Numbers and Pages, right under 400GB.

    Sure, the limit is 200MB now. Let's see how long that lasts. It also makes a huge difference whether any video is cached on the storage.
