Smart TVs and set-top boxes are almost a dime a dozen these days, from those provided by TV makers and cable operators to the myriad devices that run some form of Android, not Android TV. The current generation of devices and platforms boast of advanced functions, some of which take a page right out of smartphones, but that was not always the case.

Gaming-centric Apple TV might finally come next year

"Apple TV" now means three things, depending on the context. It could refer to the Apple TV app that has become available on non-Apple platforms recently, or it could be the shortened form of Apple TV+, the VOD and streaming subscription service that's available only on the Apple TV app. Originally, however, Apple TV referred to the company's set-top box, which has almost been mostly forgotten and ignored even by Apple itself. There are, however, persistent rumors of its long-overdue revival and, given recent market trends, it might very well happen next year.

In October it was revealed that Apple would extend the 12-months-free Apple TV+ access they'd given to hardware customers. Now Apple's delivering $4.99 credit in November, December, and January to people that have a subscription to Apple TV+ (that pay an amount of money for said subscription each month.)
