I love the way I can search for a program on any service, and it keeps track of what I've watched and whats upcoming through any of them, except Netflix because they have opted out and they did the same thing on GoogleTV. I haven't found it to be a walled garden at all. Like if I search for a movie that AppleTV has on itunes AND its on Hulu or Disney+, they aren't even deceptive, it leads me to the service that I have installed over their own pay per view service. Theres a Spotify app even though Apple has a competed service, and theres even a Plex app (for non-copyrighted downloads
ETA: oh and yeah the remote sucks. Good thing the box supports CEC controls so I can use my TV's remote. And yeah their own power connector rather than USB is annoying but I'm nearly certain it came with one so its not like you have to go buy one.
