Apple Now Selling Refurbished Apple TV 4K Models at $30 Discount [Updated]

Just after adding refurbished iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models to its online store, Apple is now selling refurbished Apple TV 4K models for the first time in the United States. Apple TV 4K was released in September 2017.

apple tv 4k refurb
32GB and 64GB models are available for $149 and $169 respectively in the United States, reflecting modest savings of $30 off Apple's regular pricing for the equivalent brand new Apple TV 4K configurations. We've yet to see any refurbished Apple TV 4K models listed in other countries.

Apple says its refurbished products are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged with a new white box and accessories.

Refurbished Apple TVs are covered by Apple's standard one-year warranty effective on the date the device is delivered. The limited warranty can be extended to up to two years from the original purchase date with AppleCare for Apple TV for $29, but note this plan doesn't include accidental damage coverage.

Apple's refurbished products are virtually indistinguishable from brand new products, so they represent an opportunity for savings, but better Apple TV 4K deals are occasionally offered by resellers. Keep an eye on our Apple Deals roundup.

In addition to the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and Apple TV 4K, Apple also began selling refurbished second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro models in January.

Update: Refurbished Apple TV 4K models are now available in the UK for £30 off, and in several other European countries for €30 off, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Ireland. (Thanks, Sam and Holger!)

It's funny how people begged for 4K when the ATV4 came out. Even with the ATV4K - not much 4K content.

Seriously? iTunes probably has the most 4K movies of any digital provider. And their pricing/upgrade strategy is the best in the business.

Yes, imagine the potential if they allocated a team and gave it the focus equivalent to what relatively tiny companies like Roku does with a fraction of the money in the bank. I'd love to see Apple do an "all in" on :apple:TV for a while. There is still so much potential in this little box.

What are you talking about? There is a crap TON of 4k content! So much good stuff from Netflix (every in-house show / movie) and Amazon Prime!

Add to that all of the 4k HDR movies to rent/buy on the iTunes store and there is PLENTY to watch.

It's actually somewhat rare for me to be watching something that _isn't_ 4k. Pretty much the only thing is broadcast TV (Hulu).

Just waiting for ATMOS and DTS-HD MA passthrough. It’s been a painful wait.
