Not an Apple fan by any means, but hard to beat an Apple TV.  Kick myself for not getting one years ago.  Has the aforementioned apps.  

 

 

 

 

I thought so too until Apple removed YouTube from the Gen 3 version.

 

 

There is quite a huge difference between 3rd gen and 4th gen onwards, as the 4th gen introduced the App Store.

 

Plus, the 3rd Gen ATV is now 9 years old...

For bach TV where you can not get DVB-T but you have fibre Internet at the bach and at home, you can set up network DVB-T tuners at home and access them from the bach.  If you have non-network tuners, you can network them by making them SAT>IP tuners with software such as minisatip or TVHeadend (on Linux).  With USB and PCI pass through a virtual Linux on a Windows box would also work.

fe31nz: TVHeadend (on Linux).


If youre going down this path just add iptv streams instead of a dedicated tuner. Guide here https://www.mjh.nz/2017/06/tvheadend-nz-freeview-iptv.html
I have the above setup on a Raspberry Pi. Works flawlessly
