I have a Roku(and we still play angry birds and galaga on it
) and I got apple tv and for whatever reason (maybe the Apple tv has a better antenna) the apple tv connects to the wifi much better than my Roku. If you won't be connecting by wifi it won't be an issue. We just got a Wii U which also has Netflix, so I have a lot of redundancy now. Apple TV has a lot of cool bells and whistles we use it often to view home movies.
