This Apple TV does not come close to Roku.

Nobody uses Apple TV in USA, all home streaming is done with Roku.

Roku has a much faster remote, being a radio emitter not infrared like Apple remote, it sends instantly commands and its signal passes through blankets, bed sheets, walls, you do not have to point the remote to the TV.

Roku has lots of free streaming content, free theater movies on it own app or Tubi app, and plugs in the back of TV into an HDMI port like an USB memory stick, just a little larger, so you do not mess with extra HDMI cables.

Besides a Roku streaming player with remote included has a price less than one quarter of Apple TV, about $50, being 4K too with fast rendering at 60 Hz, no bugs in it software.

The new Google TV is better, but it's still an ugly UI and the apps are bleh and rarely updated. Roku does OK, but it's ugly and while it has more apps than Google, they are generally pretty bad.

It doesn't sound you have used one, but as long as you are happy with what you've got, great.

Apple supports them well.

will the original apple tv 4k still receive updates? cause i would rather keep the one i currently have, but still get the new remote

I really wonder who buys an apple tv unless they have a 10-15 year old tv.every purchased tv since 2013 is smart.every apple tv feature can be provided with software.

Also the fact that some games like even MINECRAFT isn't on the apple tv

Apple TV is a niche that nobody cares about.
Nobody wants to be part of their overpriced TV suite

Apple TV is really the only good smart TV box. I have them all, including the new Google TV, but they feel primitive and tacky compared to Apple's OS. And the apps for Apple TV are generally much better designed. I wish there was more competition, but there isn't.

this has less gpu cores than the previous model, although the previous model had less frequency for cpu, so i don't know which would be faster
