Does Apple TV send out its own wifi?

    Not sure what you mean. The Apple TV needs to be connected to a network, usually a WiFi network, or possibly connected with an Ethernet cable. If you have Internet connection then 99.9% you have a network as well. If you have an Apple TV, a Mac with movies, and no Internet connection at all, then the Mac can create its own WiFi network and you can play movies or music from it.

  • It does NOT act like a wi-fi router. It does NOT extend a wi-fi network. It acts like many other wi-fi client device, but also advertises itself as a display device with AirPlay.
