issues with the Apple box not supporting DV or Atmos on some service this week but not next, but the next update will reverse that and now the sites without DV support have it, but you can't even get 5.1 at the moment. What? Stereo audio is not good enough for that expensive 7.2.4 system you spent a fortune on?
Which is pretty much the entire history of Amazon streamers (I own the 2nd gen 4K streamer as well as the 4K stick).
I just got tired of the endless nonsense Amazon puts their users through.
If the streaming service and the content I want to watch supports DV and Atmos, quit screwing around and give me that, Amazon
. I don't want to hear excuses about a product that's been shipping for two years, nor do I care about your political issues with competitors and why it is you disable stuff to spite them.
If you're going to be in streaming hardware business, BE IN THE STREAMING HARDWARE BUSINESS,
and put out hardware that does what you claim it's supposed to do.
That would be why I chose the AppleTV4K. I got sick of Amazon's bullfeces.
