Apple TV on Sale for $20 Off at Staples for $89, Today Only

If you were about to purchase a new Apple TV, Staples has a one-day sale right now, offering the streaming media player for $20 off at $89. This is the third generation model and the deal is available both in-store and online (currently sold out).

If you want new, looks like this is your best bet to find one in store. But you could always go with an $85 refurbished model from Apple.ca, pretty much available all year round.

You could save $2 more by price matching at Future Shop or Best Buy, taking this down to $87.

Staples seems to have annual Apple TV sales, like last year, they had the device as a door crasher special for $88, plus who can forget the year before that when it was offered for $79 (which turned out to a SNAFU for online orders).

If you have an iPhone, iPad and Mac, an Apple TV is essential in my books primarily because of AirPlay (and AirPlay Mirroring) and also the excellent Netflix experience.

Let us know if you’re going to jump on this!

    Who’d want to buy an ATV3 when a new one is about to be on the market soon (rumours)

  • Yep, the Apple TV is long overdue for an update.

    Or buy directly from Apple Canada for $85 including free shipping, free return and the usual 1 year warranty?

    I’ve had an Apple TV 2 since it was released. I haven’t bothered to upgrade to the 3 because I don’t see it’s worth it. It’s great, but so disappointing that Apple really does seem to continue to treat it like a hobby. The app selection in Canada is anemic and with so many of the US channel apps requiring a cable login ID, faking a US address isn’t even worth it.

    The YouTube app is so cumbersome. Unlike just about every other YouTube app on every other device, you can’t login to your subscriptions and just see a list of all new videos from all channels to which you subscribe. Your subscription channels are just listed randomly in no order whatsoever and you have to go in and out of each channel individually to check and see if there are new videos.

    It’s nice to be able to watch movies and mirror my MacBook, but there are loads of ways and devices to do that with now. I really hope Apple puts some effort into a meaningful update to Apple TV 4.

    I love my ATV3, just wish there was a built in browser as always mirroring my phone isn’t that practical.
