A lot of entertainment. In a very little box.
With Apple TV, everything you want to watch — films, some in 1080p, photo slideshows and more — plays wirelessly on your widescreen TV. No managing storage. No syncing to your iTunes library. HD films from iTunes 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 and Photo Stream, your photos update automatically — no syncing, no sending.
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.
Cruise through the simple Apple TV menus with the sleek, aluminium Apple Remote, included with every Apple TV. Choose from films, Photo Stream, Podcasts, YouTube and more with a click. The Apple TV interface takes full advantage of your widescreen TV, making it clear and easy to find whatever entertainment you’re in the mood for.
Get connected with Apple TV.
Setting up Apple TV is about as simple as it gets. Just plug the power lead into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV using your Wi-Fi network, that’s all you need. Well, that and a comfy sofa.
Give your digital collection some airtime.
Home Sharing on your Apple TV makes sure those songs, photos and home videos don’t have to stay on your computer. For maximum entertainment, stream your digital collection over the air to your Apple TV. Just don’t forget to call dibs on the recliner.
Your HD films. Instant entertainment.
It puts the cinema in home cinema.
No more queueing to check out DVDs or watching stale blockbusters on cable. 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 films are never out of stock, and you can rent as many as you want. That’s perfect for those spontaneous film nights (or afternoons or mornings). Search by top films, title or genre. Even read a quick film review, watch the trailer and check out the latest ratings from iTunes. Once you find what you’re looking for, simply press Play, and in seconds, you’re watching the opening credits with cinema-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.1 SD rentals start from just USD 2.99, and HD rentals start from USD 3.99. You have 30 days to start watching, and once you begin, you can watch as many times as you want in 48 hours.

Your photos are just there on your HDTV. For you, and everyone, to enjoy.

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.
