There is an issue however with these refurbs as they come with re-assigned UDID’s however, this is where the problem lays as these UDID’s are for ipod’s which means that installing apps on them using Developers accounts impossible.


With developer accounts going for $99 this is an expensive problem to have, we have contacted Apple Support regarding this issue but as of yet there has been no response. We urge everyone purchasing refurbsihed Apple TV’s to be careful when choosing to do so.
