Enjoy 1080p high-definition movies, videos and more

Apple TV gives you a virtually unlimited selection of high-definition movies, TV shows, video, and photos to explore. This wireless digital media receiver can play music from your computer, show photos from your iPhone®, even access your media collection stored online in the iCloud.

Apple TV

The newest Apple TV can stream full 1080p high-definition video and audio. You'll enjoy your favorite TV shows, movies and even photo slideshows in breath-taking 1080p resolution. And with the ability to deliver Dolby® Digital 5.1 surround sound, your movies and shows will sound as good as they look.

Apple TV

With iCloud, the sky's the limit

Apple TV links to the iCloud, where you can store your music, photos, documents and more online. And the iCloud can be accessed by any Apple device — use Apple TV to display photos you took with your iPhone, on your HDTV's big beautiful screen. Or the music you bought through iTunes, or the home movies you edited on your iPad. If it's in your iCloud, it's available via your Apple TV. And you'll navigate through all of that entertainment via a crisp 1080p interface that's a pleasure to look at.

Apple TV

There's more with AirPlay®

AirPlay wireless streaming makes it easy to tap into your iTunes library through Apple TV. Just open iTunes on your laptop or Apple portable device, and select Apple TV in the AirPlay menu. You can control the volume remotely, and even stream the music simultaneously to additional AirPlay-compatible components.

Download Apple's free Remote app to your iPhone, iPod touch®, or iPad®, and turn it into a powerful Wi-Fi® remote that'll control the music coming from your PC.

But your computer isn't the only compatible entertainment source. You can send music or video from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Play games on your TV using your iPhone as the controller, hearing the soundtrack through your audio system.

Play Internet radio stations through iTunes, or sound from your iPhone or iPad apps — including music services such as Pandora® and Rhapsody. It's all possible with Apple TV.

But if you have an iPad, iPad 2, the new iPad or iPhone 4S, you're not just limited to audio. Your device also has AirPlay Mirroring functionality. That is, your iPad or iPhone 4S can wirelessly stream what's on its screen to your TV screen through the Apple TV. Show everyone what's on your device, even when you zoom in or change from portrait to landscape.

Sign up for entertainment!

With an iTunes account, you can rent or download 1080p HD movies and TV shows. If you're a Netflix subscriber, you can stream your selections straight to your HDTV through Apple TV. And you'll enjoy the same simple, intuitive interface you get with iTunes, so browsing and selecting your programs will be a breeze.

You can even keep up to date with sports. MLB.TV, NBA and NHL.TV all offer subscriptions through Apple TV so you can watch your favorite teams — sometimes live. And with Apple TV you can rewind or fast forward through recorded games, or just pause the action if you need to.

There are a host of on-demand news programs available on a subscription basis, including some produced by the Wall Street Journal.

Video and media library options

The Apple TV also serves up videos from YouTube®, Vimeo, Flickr, and other select sites. Still not enough? You can also enjoy your favorite audio or video podcasts. And with Home Share, you can access up to five different iTunes libraries within the same network. So if you've got photos on your iPhone you haven't put on your computer — no problem. You can search your libraries and find that photo, wherever you happened to store it.

Good for streaming

Written By Bo, Massachusetts on Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you're into gaming and/or apps, you'll need to go with the latest version at twice the price. However, for streaming movies and tv programming without any of the other bells and whistles, this is still the smartest choice. We also have a Roku 3 and the Apple is definitely more stable. Before getting this, we had subscribed to Sling TV primarily to be able to get HBO Now on the Roku. The rest of Sling's content was useless to us and their interface was the worst I have ever seen, so we were paying a total of $35/month just for HBO. Dropping the $20 monthly fee for Sling is now paying for our Apple TV over and over again. The only negative is the remote which is not much bigger than your doctor's tongue depressor, so it's too easy to press the wrong button.

Pros: Intuitive interface Stable Excellent video and audio quality Good selection of content

Cons: Remote is much too small No Amazon Prime

The little box that still does

Written By Bill from KCMO, KCMO on Thursday, September 24, 2015

So Apple released this version of the Apple TV many, many years ago - 2012 to be exact (2013 if you want to include the upgraded wifi and bluetooth capabilities) - and it's only become more capable as time has marched on. While it doesn't have access to as many online video services as competitors like FireTV and Roku, it does have much better versions of the apps for access to common services, like Netflix and Hulu, than the FireTV and Roku have.

It's also the no-brainer streaming box for households running with other iOS devices and Macintosh computers, or those who have heavily invested in the iTunes media ecosystem.

While this box is becoming long in tooth, the price has improved to where it needs to be. It may only have a 1080p picture, but chances are that 1080p picture is higher quality than the 1080p picture of competing devices, even on the same streaming service (case in point - I was given a FireTV box and ran both devices side by side while playing House of Cards from Netflix - while some parts of scenes were a little brighter on the FTV, the ATV had less noise in the picture).

If you're looking for a basic 1080p streaming box and you don't already have a smart TV, this is a decent pick. If you have an investment in the Apple ecosystem of hardware and software and want an easy way to put your media on the big screen, this is a great option. However, if you already own a smart TV or you're not an user of Apple stuff, look elsewhere.

Pros: Apple integration Great picture for 1080p Supports Dolby Digital 5.1 audio from many sources Regular software updates Best in class apps to access online streaming services

Cons: 2012 hardware Stuck at 1080p No DD+ 7.1 or any DTS audio Not going to be as capable as the upcoming Apple TV 4

very happy

Written By sammagolicat, Virginia on Wednesday, September 23, 2015

My son used this at college and suggested it. So, I bought it and also agree that it is awesome. Thankfully, I have multiple "Apple" devices in the house so that when I'm using one to watch a movie (you can also use a laptop), I can still use another device to scroll through my FB feed or other online activities. It is plug and play! Noting to it. I bought a multi-port USB hub because my TV only has 3 usb inputs. This way, I ca always leave it connected without removing any other devices. Basically, any online video streams directly from your device hrough Apple-TV and to your big-screen! Great item and great price point! I'm happy with it.

Pros: everything

Cons: had to buy a USB hub because my TV only has 3 USB inputs and I have multiple devices connected already

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product, but stopped working 2 weeks out. This is the second Apple TV to stop working. The first was out of warranty. Apple did replace the second faulty unit with a new one in a timely fashion. Tech support did their best to resolve the issues, but could not.

Pros: Program access. Easy to use. Compact size. Good service/support.

Cons: Questionable long term durability.


Written By PSheds, South Carolina on Monday, August 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to setup and configure. We use it mainly to watch HBOGO and Netflix. It doesn't have the buffering problems that watching Netflix on our Samsung Blu-Ray has. My son uses the built-in WWE Network app. He also uses AirPlay to show off his iPad games on the TV.

Pros: Easy of setup and use. Smooth video and great sound. AirPlay.

Cons: Can't add additional apps. You need to run some apps off of your iPad or iPhone.

Great Door Stop

Written By SaiJaiJai, Alexandria, Virginia on Thursday, April 16, 2015

Makes for a great door stop. After a few months of working, it was showing a picture indicating a cable connection to a computer. Not knowing what this meant had to go on line to look it up. Found out this means connect to iTunes to restore. Upon connecting to iTunes to restore, received an error message that said this device was unable to be restored. Took it to the local Apple Store to have it check out only to find I had to get an appointment for the next day to have someone look at it. Now my time is more valuable than what I paid for this device. So I upgraded to a smart TV and use the Apple TV puck as a door stop for my AV room. Every night when I go in to watch the new smart TV I just kick the puck up against the door to keep it closed. (Air currents in the house pop the door open) Works great!

Pros: Great Door Stop

Cons: None

Another Apple product that "just works." Very easy to navigate

Pros: Very easy to install and use

Cons: Apple's remote functions well but is too small. Did a google search and was able to find how to program my tv remote to work with Apple TV. It would be nice if apple offered more channels.

Nice new price

Written By Bwana, Oxnard, California on Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my second Apple TV box. What I like is that I can stream identical content to both at the same time, so a group of people can be in the living room and another in the media room watching the same movie. The new $69 price point is great. BTW, Apple TV works MUCH BETTER than the apps on my Sony TVs.

Pros: Price, size, functionality

Worth the $ just for AirPlay!

Written By Craig, Central Ohio on Monday, March 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this for the sole purpose of Apple Airplay. I unboxed this unit and was streaming iTunes music from my PC to my stereo receiver (connected with optical audio cable) within 10 minutes. For me, this feature alone was worth the money. Heck, I may never watch videos, movies, TV shows or use any of the other features but this simple box allows me to play all of my extensive audio collection (about 75gb of music) throughout my entire house easily. Also, from what I can tell, the AirPlay seems more versatile than that built-in to most modern audio receivers as I was able to quickly access my playlists right from the TV screen. Further, I don't have to even have to leave my TV on once I have it all set up. Or I can just switch inputs on my TV if I want to use the TV for other things such as gaming while AirPlay is running. Nevertheless, if my DVR ever screws up and my wife misses an episode of Scandal, she can buy it for a few bucks through Apple TV. There is so much value here and it's like all Apple products - simple! I only wish it had Pandora but I can stream that through my Xbox One so it's not like I can't get it another way.

Pros: Apple AirPlay and much more! Simple to use!

Cons: No Pandora

A new addition to our media room as there was a need to be able to stream the one billion movies and TV shows (that we have purchased on iTunes for our kids in recent years). This device talks to our iMac and enables us to pull up movies, TV shows and music in our media room. Can't beat this technology for the price of $99.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have used Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV. I prefer Apple TV with Airplay giving it a slight edge over Amazon Fire TV, but both devices are worth the extra money over Roku.

Pros: It interfaces seamlessly with other Apple Devices.

Cons: Amazon Fire TV is faster.

If you are a Mac person, like me you will love this Apple TV for streaming. If you have Mac's you can stream your photos and music. I believe PC's too. But Mac's are seamless. Of course you need iTunes...If you travel, take it with you and stream from wherever.. It is definitely small enough..Well worth the price...

Pros: User friendly. Everything works well.

Cons: Remote could be bigger.

I love my Apple TV

Written By Matt, Phila, PA on Tuesday, February 25, 2014

TV watching could not be easier. Right now I just use Apple TV for new movies but there is so much more to explore. I like the "pay as you watch" idea instead of a monthly fee. The movies are top billboard and the streaming quality is excellent. Even the sound is top notch Digital Dolby. I had Netflix and hated the choice of old B rated movies, slow streaming quality and dull sound. I like quality and Apple TV delivers.

Pros: Quality HD picture, clear Digital Dolby sound, ease of use. Pay as you watch, no fees.

Cons: None from me, just what the doctor ordered.

Had an older apple tv previously and was skeptical about buying one without a hard drive (as they used to come). Could have been happier. Set up was easy, and this version offered many more options and consistent air play. My last one made mirroring other devices a bit difficult. Love the option for HBO go right from the device.

Pros: Quick Set up Mirroring with no problem Small footprint Seemingly no interference with any other components

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product only works with 2011 or newer Macs. Incompatible with all other versions,like mine. That was not clearly stated in this ad. Only deep digging at the Apple Store garnered the critical info. Also,concerning the "money back guarantee", well, $10 was deducted "for my convenience" for the return label. So, it ended a 90% to me and not the stated 100%. I would have done better buying locally. Be sure to read the fine print before ordering. It could save you some money,as the prices are often no real bargain and easily matched or bettered elsewhere.

Pros: Unknown

Cons: Incompatible with my version of Mac it

AirPlay Mirror is amazing, and I can get my photo stream pictures. The software is fast and intuitive, puts the Samsung and LG smart stacks to shame

Apple really needs to open up an SDK for this product, and it will finally take off

Pros: Typical apple: easy to use, intuitive

Cons: Needs more software

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my 9yr old daughter to watch Netflix. This was very simple to configure and I loved the fact that it has both options of wired or wireless. I will be buying one for me

Pros: simple to configure and I it has both options of wired or wireless.

Cons: Can't think of one yet

Big Entertainment Value for a Little Device!

Great little hockey puck size device. Love to stream music and photos through it. Best electronic value you can add to your media system. I have 4 of them spread throughout the house, including one outside in a covered gazebo.

Pros: Easy to use and set up.

Cons: Wish more channels are offered.

yet another "me too" device

Apple TV is a ok choice if you are starting with nothing. ( No smart TV, No wifi Blueray player, No PS3/Xbox/etc. No a/v receiver) Chances are that you already have some device that can already do most of what apple tv does. (netflix, hulu, youtube etc. are all available in other web based devices like bluray players, a/v receiver, or gaming systems; You WILL need one of these anyway to complete your system) Apple TV offers very little over these other required components in your system and is therefore really redundand! Only feature it offers over others is capability to view your iphone/ipod directly on tv, but there are apps that can do this. BTW, apple tv does not fully support older apple devices (like iphone4 and older, why?)

Pros: apple logo on box, airplay integration.

Cons: another box with wires/connections that is really redundant and not needed in any decent av system

Great payoff for the money

For only a hundred bucks, I now have access to all my music on the Apple Cloud. Could not have been easier. Great recommendation by the Crutchfield staff. Thanks.

Pros: Very easy set up. Easy access to all my Apple music. Identical format to what I see on my iPad and MacBook Pro. Netflix looks great as well.

Cons: Netflix is about the only channel of interest. Roku has more variety.

Finishing Touch to my Home Theater

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This purchase was the finishing touch to our home theater system. As with any Apple product, it truely is "plug and Play". I just had to program the NAD receiver and we're off flawlessly steaming movies...nice picture quality and no glitches. It is kind of freaky how all of our Apple devices automaticaly sync to it.

Apple TV - great device!

Really great product. There are some older videos that I have to covert to a compatible format to be able to view them with the apple tv, but other than that, great product.

good functionality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I primarily bought the device for the MLB app and the Apple TV is serving its purpose well. I am a dvr lover. So, I would not give up the way I watch tv now to go with Apple TV or one of its competitors. But, for specific apps like the MLB app, the Apple TV is great.

I had a Roku before this. The apps were great. But, the box was cheap (no digital optical audio out) compared to the Apple TV. I would buy the Apple TV again without hesitation.

Pros: -MLB app (U-verse does not have the MLB Extra Innings package) -free digital music -tons of podcast -extremely easy setup

Cons: -occasional buffering (My internet speed is supposed to be up to 12 MBPS and I still get some buffering which is probably normal for these types of media players.)

This product is Fantastic!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I honestly couldn't be more happy with this product and will be purchasing additional units for other parts of my home. It does everything it says it does and makes streaming audio/video from my family's iPhones and iPad a breeze. The user-friendliness couldn't be any better. The primary uses of my Apple TV include streaming Youtube videos, TuneIn radio stations and my iTunes library. I haven't embraced the Netflix or Hulu waves just yet, so I'm afraid I'm not using the device to its full capabilities. There is so much more to do with this fantastic little box than the apps that come preloaded. Download the free remote app and you can leave the IR remote (that comes with the device) in the box! "Mirroring" your Apple devices is also a breeze. Fantastic product. Fantastic value. Fantastic service. I'll gladly spend my money with Crutchfield again and again because of their superior support and technical knowledge. You won't be disappointed with the Apple TV!

Pros: Ease of use. Endless possibilities. Download the free remote app and you can leave the IR remote in the box. Device itself is very small.

Cons: Cannot think of any.

Great with new large TV
