Hello everyone.

I am a new iTunes user so something like Apple TV is an obvious choice.

I don't want to spend money for Apple TV 4 because I can get Apple TV 3 almost for "free".

I've seen that Apple TV is running iOS ver. 8 something, is it gonna play
-iTunes movies
-Netflix
-Youtube

for at least some time?

Because Apple web site says it's obsolete :S

Yeah it should be fine for streaming video for a while. And if/when you decide to upgrade to an ATV 4, you can still use the old Apple TV in another room.

Should work. My old iPod Classic still syncs with the latest iTunes and can play music and movies from the iTunes Store (and also the content I've ripped from DVDs and CDs).
