Picture quality Apple TV

Is there an improved picture quality on the Apple TV compared to the now to box or do you think it's the same.

They are the same in terms of image resolution.

 

However, the Apple TV boxes can be configured to output a (UK/EU) 50Hz video signal, which the current NOW TV (Roku boxes) can't do...

Ah, so that means it's a smoother video quality and would look more like 720p when live streaming channels.  Or am I totally off,aha.

Unless you're watching some old crappy sources say on Gold, the 'live stream' resolution will be (down-scaled from Sky TV's original 1080i/50Hz resolution to) 720/50Hz...

Ah right.

do you think it would be worth getting an Apple TV or do you think should stick to the now tv box.

Apple TVs are extremely good, but really rely on you using other Apple services such as iTunes for music.  If you don't, the selection of apps on the NOW TV box is far superior.  There is no iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 or My5 on AppleSmiley Surprised

The Apple Tv 4th gen has a better picture quality than the black box in my opinion.

 

Just need a decent Now Tv app, Netflix is great.
