About this itemApple TV brings TV shows, movies, music, photos, Internet video and more from computers and other devices to your TV.
Now there’s always something good on TV
With Apple TV, everything you want to watch — movies, TV shows, photo slideshows, and more — plays wirelessly on your widescreen TV. No managing storage. No syncing to your iTunes library. HD movies and TV shows from iTunes and Netflix play over the Internet on your HDTV, and music and photos stream from your computer. All you have to do is click and watch.
With iCloud, you can browse and watch your purchased TV shows and listen to your previously purchased music. And with Photo Stream, your photos update automatically — no syncing, no sending. Apple TV features a powerful A4 chip, so it plays everything effortlessly, without frozen screens or stutters. And just like watching a DVD, you can fast-forward through opening credits, pause for a popcorn break, or replay a hilarious scene until you memorize every line.
Apple TV is quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand. Which makes it perfect for sitting neatly on a TV stand or squeezing into a crowded media cabinet. And when it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light.
From the movie theater to your home theater.
With Apple TV, you get instant access to the hottest Hollywood titles and new releases — often the same day they come out on DVD. Popular movies are never out of stock, and you can rent as many as you want. Even read a quick movie review, watch the trailer, and check out the latest ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. Once you find what you’re looking for, simply press Play, and in seconds, you’re watching the opening credits with theater-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. SD rentals start at just $2.99, and HD rentals start at $3.99. You have 30 days to start watching, and once you begin, you can watch as many times as you want in 24 hours.
You can also buy your favorite TV shows and watch them without commercial interruption for just $1.99 in SD or $2.99 in HD. And you can download them later to your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or computer at no additional cost. It works the other way around, too. Buy an episode on any of your devices, and it automatically shows up in your list of previously purchased items, so you can watch it via Apple TV. Watch a show the day after it airs, or camp out on your couch and catch up on past seasons with a marathon of back-to-back-to-back episodes. And Apple TV keeps track of your favorite shows — so the next time you turn on your TV, you can quickly see which season you’re watching and which episodes are new.
Your content. Large and in charge
Not only can you stream music, photos, and videos to Apple TV from your computer — but thanks to AirPlay, you can also stream it all from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. So if you feel like watching a movie you have on one of your devices, you don’t need to rent or buy it again. You can also stream a home video you just recorded or videos from websites and AirPlay-enabled apps. Simply tap to start playing content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then tap again to instantly stream whatever you’re watching — or listening to — directly to Apple TV.
From classics to recent Hollywood favorites, Netflix on Apple TV lets you watch even more movies and TV shows in HD and with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound when available. Apple TV organizes Netflix’s huge catalog of streaming titles so you can find what you want with just a few clicks. When you find something you like, watch it right away or add it to your instant-watch queue. Since Apple TV lets you access your Netflix account directly from your HDTV, you can ditch all the computer-to-TV adapters and skip straight to the part where you press Play.
