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.
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.
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.
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.
