New Apple TV Orders Go Live in Canada, Starts at $199 [u]
If you want to buy an Apple TV, now is the time: as promised by Tim Cook, the company has started accepting orders for the all-new Apple TV (4th generation). You can choose between either the 32GB version, which retails for $199 (CAD), or the 64GB version. However, the latter will cost you $269 (CAD). By comparison, you’ll pay $149 and $199 respectively in the US.
In addition to the new set-top-box, you can buy an AppleCare protection plan for $29, offering access to two years from the original purchase date to Apple’s (award-winning) telephone technical support and repair coverage.
You’ll also need an HDMI-to-HDMI cable (if you buy it from the Apple it’s $25; Amazon.ca is $6 each!), because in the box you’ll get the Apple TV 4, a Siri Remote, a Lightning-to-USB cable and power lead.
Apple also sells the Siri Remote separately for $99 (CAD), a Remote Loop for $17 and the SteelSeries Nimbus wireless gaming controller for $64.95. All accessories, as well as the Apple TV 4, are available to shipping in 3-5 business days.
Apple Canada informed us via email Siri features do not support Canadian French at launch, for those wondering.
