Apple TV

If money is no object, then the Apple TV or Apple TV 4K box could be right for you. It comes with all the bells and whistles (for the beautiful geeks out there, that means things like Dolby Vision, HDR10, A10X Fusion chip, 4K HDR). It also comes with a hefty price tag. If streaming things from iTunes and Apple Music alongside Netflix is your game, this could be the your option. And if you like talking to Siri, it comes with a voice remote with Siri built-in.

Privacy policy reading level scores provided by the Usable Privacy Policy Project
Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.
