The interface is nice, but the real appeal comes from interoperability between it, macOS and iOS devices (AirPlay, Apple Music, etc). It's nice if you'd like a centralized UI for your apps instead of controlling everything from your phone like Chromecast, but if you're not locked into the Apple ecosystem you can get equally great media players for half the cost.
