Apple TV Buying Tips/Advice?

Iím a Roku guy. I know nothing about Apple TV but in reading up it appears to be Appleís version of a Roku box.

My 8th grade son wants one for his room. Considering getting him one. HD not 4K.

Question: Is there anything I should know before or after purchase or is it just a straightforward buy, plug, play?

TIA

Unlike underEJ, I have never experienced connection issues. I have 40mb/s internet. My only complaint is the remote can be finicky. I use my iPhone 95% of the time and itís not a problem.

I do agree with ChiliConCarnage, Iíve seen few discounts and the refurb store is solid. The products look new, but ship in a box similar to new but without any print, meaning it wonít say Apple TV on it.

One thing I love is the ability to switch between my Apple account and my friends. They both have over 500 movies and hundreds of TV shows I can watch.
This is all very helpful SLC. Thanks, rep incoming.
