Apple TV MB189B/A ... your TV? Apple TV brings iTunes to the big screen.
Say you've just downloaded Cars from iTunes. Instead of huddling around your computer to watch, you pop some popcorn while your computer wirelessly syncs your new flick to Apple TV. Then you pull up a seat, put up your feet, and pick up the included Apple Remote to play your movie on TV. Give yourself a hand: you've just changed the way you watch digital media.
Apple TV connects to your TV via an HDMI port or component video and audio ports. Its built-in, superfast 802.11 wireless capability syncs your iTunes library to any Mac or PC in the house. Best of all, what's on Apple TV stays in sync: anytime you change your library in iTunes, it changes on Apple TV - wirelessly, automatically.
Apple TV puts your iTunes library - movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts - plus movie trailers from Apple.com on your TV. And your digital photos from iPhoto on a Mac or Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Album on a Windows PC appear in high definition, so you can put on a stunning big-screen slideshow.

The concept of this is great - to basically have itunes on your TV. I've been a user of itunes for a number of years. I mostly use it to download music and also occassionally movies but the only way I could watch them back was through my iphone which wasn't ideal considering the small screen size. This was the main reason why I purchased this. It is really easy to set up and all you need is an itunes account, internet connection and an HDMI cable. The movie download aspect works great. The menus are beautifully presented and its easy to navigate your way through. There's plenty of catergories to choose from and each movie offers further suggested titles which ...

Looking around the market for streaming devices, Apple TV has to be the easiest I've come across in terms of setup and general use. ~~Looks~~ Like all Apple products they pride themselves on being asthetically pleasing and the Apple TV is just that. It looks just like a slightly smaller version on the Mac Mini. The remote it comes with is very basic, having just a menu button and just the general media controls; play/pause, skip, rewind, volume up/down, simple yet all you need. ~~inputs/outputs~~ Apple TV is the only device that has a direct HDMI output, as crazy as that is Apple has no need for it so you won't find it on any ...

It seems as though the Apple TV never really caught the attention of massive amounts of people in the UK, but listen up, this tiny device has seen some great improvements in the way of content. Apple always seem to do things with style. I own a lot of Mac equipment and one of these sits underneath mt TV. It stands about 4 CD cases high (28mm) and 197x197mm in width and depth. The sleek lines show just the infrared receiver lens on the front. Around the back you have connections for USB, ethernet (to connect to your computer network for internet connectivity), HDMI, component and composite video and an optical audio (toslink) connection. The idea ... Read the complete review

I've had my apple tv a while and although I've generally been happy with it, I do have a few complaints. I'll start with the good points though. It looks great, its compact and sleek and it matches the other products in the apple range well, especially the mac mini. The toned down version of the OS X operating system is very clear and simple to use, everything is laid out in a straightforward simple manner that makes sense. Its easy to find everything you're looking for, from trailers for the newest TV series to cult films from the eighties. I've only ever purchased content in Standard Definition so can't comment on the HD, but the ... Read the complete review

I was a bit dubious about this product when I heard about it, but it is a real godsend. For years, we have wanted to be able to watch content from the computer on the TV. We've had a range of 'solutions', none of which has been user-friendly or worked. The Apple TV just solves this problem, perfectly. You put your video content into iTunes, then synch it with the Apple TV. The Apple TV interface is beautiful and simple (as you'd expect from Apple). The remote control is tiny and very straightforward. (I think you can also use an iTouch or iPhone as a remote.) It lets you listen to your iTunes music on your main stereo system, ...
