Only Apple TV 4K. No need for a new watch and I still need to check with people in a business plan about phones.

Is there anything you need extra storage and GB on the Apple TV? It's only $20 more for the double capacity, thinking I might as well go for it.

Gonna get the Series 3 Watch (non-LTE). No need for anything else yet, but will probably get the new Apple TV at some point.

I'll be buying the AppleTV 4K as well. Anything I should be aware of?

Will be going from the Official Android TV box (Mi) to this. Hoping I can side load KODI for some rare occasion but my 90% use case is PLEX.

Noticed earlier that a bunch of my prior iTunes movie purchases have been updated to 4K and HDR.

Iím still shocked Apple was able pull that off, along with selling 4K movies at regular price.

Even if youíre an Apple hater, youíve gotta be pretty damn thankful for what they did. One would think 4K movie prices are going to drop across the board, including discs. This should help drive demand, which should help bring down the price of 4K TVs a little faster.

Positives all around.

It may still be available but your order will be much down the line of fulfillment. Some colors/options may also be out temporarily i.e the shipping time will slip for popular configurations.

For real. Iíve made fun of Eddy Cue before, but he really came through on this one.

Makes me think that VUDU/Amazon/Google didnít even try, they just let the studios do whatever they want.

Surprise of the show for me. Really impressed Apple pulled that off, quite honestly.

I donít think thereíll be a problem. All the polls I see say 75% of folks are waiting for the X. Iíll be interested how fast the shipping times stretch out for the 8.

Kinda regretting giving away all those digital codes because I was ripping the blu rays to Plex. Noticed my digital copies of Logan and Lego Batman got upgraded to 4K, so I need to go dig some other ones up.

Checking in from Tokyo.

I'm so worried about X stock that I'm buying an 8 today provisonally to resell my 7+ ASAP. I'll offload the 8 as soon as I can get my hands on an X, but in case stock is insanely bad that could be until January for all I know

Looking to get an LTE Apple Watch Series 3.

Also, does Verizon offer monthly payments for the Watch itself like they do with phones?

- Burned on Apple TV 2015, will skip 4K - hopefully Apple's actions will affect google play/amazon for better range of movies and pricing.

- my series 0 SS is still ok for notifications. Might keep a look out for a cheap series 2 SS as stores clear stock. I donít need LTE and canít use it in the UK anyway on my operator, and SS forces me to buy LTE.

- I want an X but half tempted to get an 8 to play with for a couple of weeks, see how I get on.

Damn, I guess the 4K service is not yet available in Finland. Didn't notice any 4K movies on the store :(

Thereís an official plex app, but you can sideload apps easily enough if you have a Mac.

I do.

I was mainly concerned about performance in KODI, it can be resource intensive on occasions. Though with the A10X, it should be better.

So, with the assumption that getting the 8 and 8+ will be a bit easier, how hard do you guys expect it to be to get the X?

Impossible for 2017. Just my guess. I think it is fair to say it will be the hardest iPhone to get ever. I expect 99% of orders on Oct 27 to be 3-4 week delivery from Nov 3 which puts it at early to mid December for first grouping to get theirs.

I'm pretty sure PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is meant to replicate the struggle of getting an iPhone X.
