I posted back in April...
And finally with the latest release, some 6 months later, my Apple TV is no longer asking my Apple password every time I try to watch anything.
I have to say that their support is pretty crap. Periodically, every month or two, I have called, and every time I get someone that is polite and nice and well trained in placating complaining customers. They will take on the case and be my point of contact. They will stay with it until it is resolved. They understand how frustrating it is. The customer interaction training is excellent, if not the technical support behind the scenes.
Every time they have something to delay matters, such as their support people wanting times/dates of the issue, and so on.
Often it was "they wanted to know X", but that was weeks of months before and nobody emailed me or called me to say they were now waiting for something. I had to brave using my Apple TV again, get pissed off with it, and after a few drinks, feel up to the conversation with them again. Hard work.
Irony now - friends of mine can no longer use their Apple TV at all, just not accepting their password at all. Ooops.
So, now, do I go for a 4K Apple TV as I have had a 4K TV for years now? Probably.
I feel like a sheep!
