AppleCare Protection Plan for Apple TV.

For up to two years from the original purchase date of your Apple TV, you get direct, one-stop access to Apple’s award-winning telephone technical support and repair coverage. What sets the latest generation of Apple TV apart are features like the touch-sensitive remote control, Siri-powered voice search, a more powerful processor, and improved gaming capabilities.

Apple is offering free shipping for delivery between Nov. 2 and Nov. 4, and in an unusual twist, next-day shipping is $17—but the delivery window is Oct. 30-Nov. 3. AppleCare Protection Plan benefits are in addition to a consumer’s right to a free-of-charge repair or replacement, by the seller, of goods which do not conform with the contract of sale. For people who order on Monday, they can receive their Apple TV in a week with standard shipping, or they can choose next-day shipping and open their package on October 30 — perfect for streaming scary movies on Halloween.

The new Apple TV doesn’t look a whole lot different from its predecessor—which is also still available to purchase for $69—but the hockey puck-shaped set-top box has tons of new features under the hood. Since the Apple TV was announced in September, a number of other companies have released streaming devices: Google unveiled the latest version of its $35 Chromecast, Amazon released a new Fire TV, and the 4K-capable Roku 4 was launched.

Developers can’t just port iOS apps to the Apple TV—they have to design them specifically for the set-top box. (If you’re working on something awesome for tvOS, get in touch!) The new TV also comes with a redesigned remote with Siri integration for voice search, and you can buy a wrist loop for $13 to use the remote as a game controller. If you lose the remote, replacements cost $79. iMore notes that only one Siri remote can be paired to an Apple TV, so don’t expect to buy several remotes for the ultimate multiplayer gaming experience.
