Product Details

Apple TV With A5 Chip Processor, Model MD199LLA

The Apple TV is a tiny entertainment powerhouse that plays the content you love from iTunes, Netflix, YouTube, and your favorite sports leagues on your widescreen TV. In up to 1080p HD. The perfect centerpiece to your home entertainment center, the Apple TV gives you complete control on your favorite programming and music choices. Installation is a breeze, just plug it in, connect to the internet and start streaming.

The Apple TV gives you the opportunity to connect to your favorite streaming websites, but it also becomes your iPhone and iPad's best friend. With Apple's proprietary AirPlay, you can wireless stream content from you other Apple devices directly to your widescreen HDTV. Start streaming your photos and videos with the touch of a button. Sit back, and enjoy!

Features:

  • Movies, TV shows, music, photos, and more. All on your widescreen TV
    Apple TV gives you anytime access to endless entertainment. Thousands of HD movies and TV shows from iTunes — many in stunning 1080p — play through Apple TV on your HDTV, and music and photos stream from your computer. You just click and watch. With AirPlay, it’s simple to play content from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on your TV.1 And the Apple TV interface makes it easy to find whatever you’re in the mood for
  • Small. Powerful. Efficient
    Quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand, Apple TV sits neatly on a TV stand or in a crowded media cabinet. When it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light. And the included Apple Remote makes it easy to get to your favorite entertainment
  • Easy setup
    Setting up Apple TV takes almost no time at all. Just plug the power cord 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. Except for the popcorn
  • Give your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch some airtime
    With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your widescreen TV via Apple TV.1 So if you want to watch a movie stored on one of your devices, you don’t need to buy or rent it again to watch it on the best screen in the house. You can also stream home movies, photos, or videos from websites and AirPlay-enabled apps. And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can display the screen of your iPad or iPhone 4S on your HDTV.2 So when you tap, swipe, pinch, or play something, it shows up on the big screen — ideal for sharing entertainment with friends or showing off your gaming skills (or lack thereof)
  • Store it in iCloud. Watch it on Apple TV
    With iCloud, you can buy movies and TV shows on Apple TV and watch them on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. And vice versa.3 iCloud also stores your photos and pushes them wirelessly to all your devices4 — including your HDTV via Apple TV. It’s the easiest way to get instant access to your content, no matter which device you’re using
  • iTunes Match
    If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you can access your entire music collection from iCloud — including songs you’ve imported from CDs — right from your Apple TV. Play your whole collection on Apple TV or any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer for just $24.99 a year.5 iTunes Match has an amazing scan-and-match feature: All the songs in your iTunes library are scanned and then matched with those available on the iTunes Store. Matched songs are instantly added to iCloud with no uploading needed. Any remaining songs are automatically uploaded from your computer to iCloud
  • Photo Stream
    Uploading all the photos from a summer vacation or a big event is as easy as doing nothing at all. With Photo Stream in iCloud, your most recent 1000 photos automatically appear on all your devices — including Apple TV — no matter which device you used to take the picture. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there on your HDTV. For you, and everyone, to enjoy

    This is a wonderful, unobtrusive little box that has a few flaws. First and foremost, some of the apps that come with it does not work (Watch ABC, and the 3 Disney apps). This is not a big deal with my family, since we can get this service through U-Verse.

    The second flaw is accessing iTunes on our pc. It took me some time and frustration before I figured out that iTunes needs to be running on the pc whenever Apple TV attempts to access the content. I couldn't figure out why seemed to work intermittently until the light bulb went off. This is not a big deal either, but it is something to keep in mind.

    Overall, we are very happy with the device. The Watch ESPN app is especially nice, since a lot of the college games we are interested in watching are not broadcast locally, but we can watch them through the app!

    The Apple TV seems to be just a vehicle for selling content. They should give them away. You can get much more control, freedom, and content by connecting a laptop via HDMI cable to your TV.

    I have a Yamaha receiver connected to my home network via a network bridge. It seems much easier to connect to the network and is far easier to use with the excellent and FREE Yamaha AV Controller app for my android phone.

          Comments about Apple TV With A5 Chip Processor:

          I purchased the Apple TV with the expectation that it would have a similar interface and performance as my 5 year old Roku. I was wrong. the Apple TV interface is beautiful and easy to navigate. Video is smooth with no jitter or interuptions - 1080 resolution images mostly look better than those delivered by my blu-ray player. Set up was easy. Roku is great and I still use it on my second television, but I moved the Apple TV to my most frequently used system. My old Roku is great and I recommend it but, right now, Apple TV is a great, inexpensive streamer.

Last year that had viewing game required sitting in the office viewing the computer. Now games can be viewed comfortably in the family room on the big screen for all to enjoy. There are also other viewing options HULU, Netflix, iTunes and much more. Very easy to use..........plug and play.
