“…at $99, you don’t have to fully understand what it does. It has the Apple brand, so there must be something cool about it, right? It plays TV shows, movies, and slideshows? Well, that sounds good. Netflix too? Wow, nice. And it’s only $99? What the hell, I’ll give it a try.” – Macworld
So I got my Apple TV a couple of days ago. Is it as great as I thought it would be? Pretty much! I have a slick way to do Netflix streaming on my TV and also to get iTunes movie and television show rentals into the TV. All I had to do was buy an HDMI cable and plug ‘er in.
There was some tedium involved in entering my iTunes and my Netflix account information by clicking on onscreen letters via the remote, but after that: dead simple.
Of course it also plays music out of my computer’s iTunes library.
Overall, I’d have to give the Apple TV a thumb’s up.
