We didn't expect to see any sales on the Apple TV this year, particularly for the latest 4K model. Fortunately, we have a few deals to take advantage of this Black Friday season.

Black Friday Apple TV Deal Predictions
- Don't expect Apple TV sales
If you're an Apple user, the Apple TV is probably your streaming gadget of choice because it's the only one that can play content from iTunes and Apple Music. Unfortunately, it's also the device we're least likely to see on sale over the holidays.
Last year we saw just a single deal around Black Friday, featuring an Apple TV 4K bundled with a DirecTV Now subscription — not necessarily something every shopper would want.
Still, Apple TVs do go on sale throughout the year, particularly previous-generation or refurbished devices — which can run up to 45% off. If sales on new devices show up, expect them to be in the modest 10% range.
Considering the comparably high MSRP of the Apple TV 4K — starting at $149 for refurbished models and $179 for new models — even a solid discount won't make it as affordable as other options. You'll find other 1080p streaming media players for $20 and 4K streamers for as low as $40, but even a good sale won't get you an Apple TV for less than $80.
