Thinking about getting a tv box. How does Apple TV compare to let's say the Roku 3?

Yeah I may have convinced myself to get the Apple TV. I really like that itll have the App Store. Thats the biggest selling point for me.

That whole shpiel with Crossy Road at the Apple Event may have been the worst waste of my time ever.

It looks cool and all, but with no MKV or HD audio, it's still not a movie player for me. I'll stick with my atv3 for watching Netflix and use the Mede8er for all my movies.

For me, I don't have any need for games or an app store on my movie streaming device. Now if one of the apps created is, say, Plex for Apple TV and it will pass better audio then just DD, then yea, I'm all over it.
