Does my computer need to be running to use Apple TV? Or can the Apple TV device store media or access the iCloud directly?

  • Best Answer:

    When Steve Jobs introduced Apple TV, he said people don't want another computer. Apple TV is an independent device that connects to your iCloud and iTunes account wirelessly through the air, and uses these services independently. If you want to share photos and music directly from your computer than yes, but other than that your Apple TV is its own device.
