Cut that cable cord: Apple TV HD just dropped to $99 — it's $50 off

The end of summer has a way of turning one's attention if not inward, certainly indoors — specifically to one's home-entertainment life. That means being reminded of your TV...and, alas, your cable bill. As in: "Why the &%$#@ am I still shelling out a hundred or more precious greenbacks for cable every single month when nearly everything I want to watch can be streamed?" If you've been looking to finally get smart about your viewing, well, here's the opportunity you've been waiting for: The 5th generation Apple TV HD is now more than 30% off at Amazon — just $99, down from $150.

Curl up on the couch, let Siri fire up your favorite shows, movies and games, and make the world go away.

Whether you're an Apple aficionado looking to upgrade, a Roku-er who's been mulling a format change, or a newbie altogether, you won't find a better unit at a better price than this 5th-gen Apple TV component.

Why? Let us count the ways: It offers an 1080p HD picture; Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 surround sound; Apple's trademark A8 chip that'll take your gaming and app use to another dimension; a Siri-driven remote with a touch pad; the ability to use AirPods to get your stream on privately. Of course, you'll have seamless, crystal clear access to all your favorite content providers — HBO Max, Disney+, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Paramount, Criterion and more.

And have we mentioned that it's over 30% off??

Prepare to be very, very not surprised: Thousands of customers have sung the praises of this 5th generation unit.

"Heck, yeah!" said one of them. "BIG improvement in performance, capability, and interface. A few things I have noticed: 1) I'm not a big 'smart TV' guy, but there are some very useful apps available. 2) AirPlay is much more reliable. 3) I always have trouble with my cable box, AppleTV, TV, and soundbar HDMI interface getting...confused. Since I have started using the Apple TV remote to start up and shut down my system, I have had no issues."

"It's Apple, the best," began this five-star fanboy. "As usual, not disappointed with an Apple product. I have on several of these but this version seems sturdier — the remote is heavier, solid. I would buy again."

"Best investment I've made," trumpeted an Apple acolyte. "I had an Apple TV 3rd generation for years and loved it at first. I didn’t have a regular TV provider like DirectTV at the time. Then I read about the 5th generation and realized what I was missing out on. I’m loving this one. It’s awesome that it has an App Store so I can download new apps if I want to. The voice command is so convenient! Highly recommend!"
