Apple TV is essentially a little black box that you plug into your computer. From here you are instantly connected with hours of entertainment in up to 1080p HD. You can enjoy live sports, the latest TV shows, an endless selection of blockbuster movies, the news, and more, all in high definition on your television set. You can even manage your photos, music, and other content from your Mac or iOS through AirPlay.
You can choose from a range of new releases from iTunes, where you can rent or buy and even go behind the scenes through iTunes Extras. With Apple TV you can go beyond iTunes, however. You can also enjoy the programs from HBO, Netflix, and Hulu Plus. Apple TV gives you a world of entertainment accessible effortlessly through you fingertips. Channel surfing is a thing of the past and you never have to be out of the loop at work or school with the hottest new events and TV shows.
On Apple TV there is something for everyone. Whether you like reality TV shows, staying up with current events, crime dramas, movies, or cartoons for the kids, everyone in the family will be happy. Most families have at least one sports fan, and he/she will be completely satisfied with Apple TV too. Apple TV has clips and highlights from big names everyone knows like NBA, ESPN, NHL, and MLB. Live games are also available so that you can be on the same page as all of your friends during important sporting events.
In this fast pace and changing world, especially with all of the important and historical debates and events taking place this year, having your go-to news is also important for many people. Apple TV enables you to watch CNBC News, Sky News, Bloomberg TV, ABC News, Wall Street Journal Live and of course The Weather Channel. Everyone can get their ideal entertainment needs met with Apple TV.
Apple TV also has fun and smart capabilities which allows you to do a lot more than just watch movies, TV, sports or the news.
