Apple TV. Now there’s always something good on TV.

le TV gives you access to everything you want to see and hear — blockbuster movies, TV shows, your music and photos, even news and sports — right on your widescreen TV. And now that your content is stored in iCloud, you can easily access your previously purchased TV shows. Even your photos update automatically. And best of all, Apple TV is just $99.


A lot of entertainment. In a very little box.

With Apple TV, everything you want to watch — movies, TV shows, photo slideshows, and more — plays wirelessly on your widescreen TV. No managing storage. No syncing to your iTunes library. HD movies and TV shows from iTunes and Netflix 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, you can browse and watch your purchased TV shows and listen to your previously purchased music.1 And with Photo Stream, your photos update automatically — no syncing, no sending.
Apple TV features a powerful A4 chip, so it plays everything effortlessly, without frozen screens or stutters. Videos look crisp and clear. And just like watching a DVD, you can fast-forward through opening credits, pause for a popcorn break, or replay a hilarious scene until you memorize every line.
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.

Less clutter with HDMI.

Play audio and video through a single HDMI connection.

Intuitive interface.

Cruise through the simple Apple TV menus with the sleek, aluminum Apple Remote, included with every Apple TV. Choose from Movies, TV Shows, Music, Podcasts, Photos, Internet, and Settings menus 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 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. Well, that and a comfy couch.

Give your digital collection some airtime.

Home Sharing on your Apple TV makes sure those songs, movies, TV shows, and photos — even 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 movies and TV shows. Instant entertainment.

From the movie theater to your home theater.

No more waiting in line 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 movies are never out of stock, and you can rent as many as you want. That’s perfect for those spontaneous movie nights (or afternoons or mornings). Search by top movies, title, or genre. Even read a quick movie review, watch the trailer, and check out the latest ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. Once you find what you’re looking for, simply press Play, and in seconds, you’re watching the opening credits with theater-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.2 SD rentals start at just $2.99, and HD rentals start at $3.99. You have 30 days to start watching, and once you begin, you can watch as many times as you want in 24 hours.

Now anytime is prime time.

Buy your favorite TV shows and watch them without commercial interruption for just $1.99 in SD or $2.99 in HD. And you can download them later to your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or computer at no additional cost. It works the other way around, too. Buy an episode on any of your devices, and it automatically shows up in your list of previously purchased items, so you can watch it via Apple TV. Watch a show the day after it airs, or camp out on your couch and catch up on past seasons with a marathon of back-to-back-to-back episodes. And Apple TV keeps track of your favorite shows — so the next time you turn on your TV, you can quickly see which season you’re watching and which episodes are new. Just choose shows with a few clicks of the included remote.
