About the Apple TV (4th Generation)

If you want it, just ask

Looking for something good to watch? With the new fourth-generation Apple TV, you only have to ask. Say the name of a movie or TV show, or even just a genre. Dual microphones in the slender Siri Remote hear you and obey — Siri searches through Apple TV's Netflix, Hulu, HBO NOW, SHOWTIME, and other apps to find just what you want. And you can refine your search by asking for a certain actor, director, and more.

If you want it, just ask

Looking for something good to watch? With the new fourth-generation Apple TV, you only have to ask. Say the name of a movie or TV show, or even just a genre. Dual microphones in the slender Siri Remote hear you and obey — Siri searches through Apple TV's Netflix, Hulu, HBO NOW, SHOWTIME, and other apps to find just what you want. And you can refine your search by asking for a certain actor, director, and more.

You can also ask Siri to display weather, sports scores, news headlines stocks and other information as you're watching. And if you missed some dialogue, “What did he say?” will prompt Siri to skip back and temporarily turn on closed captioning. Now that's service.

Apple TV

Easily search and select with the Siri Remote.

Control by touch and Bluetooth

The Siri Remote also has a cool Glass Touch interface, so you can swipe, scroll, navigate, rewind, and fast forward, all with a simple thumb motion. The Siri Remote has both infrared (IR) and Bluetooth control. With Bluetooth, you don't have to worry about pointing the remote at the TV (and hitting the little red sensor). The Apple TV will pick up the commands from anywhere in the room.

So much to see and hear!

The new Apple TV has a wealth of entertainment options. In addition to selecting movies, TV shows and music from iTunes, you can also subscribe directly to HBO NOW and Showtime, as well as Netflix, Hulu, and big league sports such as the NBA, NHL, and MLB. And that's in addition to other services such as PBS, YouTube, ABC, CNN, Fox, and Disney.

Connect the Apple TV to your HDTV via an HDMI cable, and prepare for stunning audio and video. If available, you can enjoy full 1080p HD video with Dolby Digital 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.

Big games on the big screen

With apps made for the new Apple TV, you can enjoy spectacular games on your TV, with the sound played through your best speakers. And for some of these games, your Siri Remote can also be your game controller. The remote's accelerometer and gyroscope translates your hand and arm motions into in-game action.

A world of music

Enjoy over 30 million songs with your subscription to Apple Music and Beats 1 radio. You can also play music from your iTunes library, and of course stream music from your iPhone or iPad. You can also choose from thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world.

Apple® AirPlay®

Apple TV has Apple AirPlay technology built in. Wirelessly share content from your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® or computer running iTunes® via your Wi-Fi® network. And with AirPlay Mirroring you can display your Apple portable's screen on your TV.

    Product Research


    Apple TV: With Apple TV, you can stream movies, TV shows, music, and games from iTunes and other online services via your home's WiFi network to your HDMI-connected TV. You also get access to your own personal music, video, & photo collection on your Apple iOS device and iCloud account for playback on your TV screen.

    • A8 Chip with 64-bit Architecture: The new Apple TV features the powerful 64-bit A8 chip. The A8 chip is designed to be power efficient and to sustain a consistently high level of performance, making your experiences on the new Apple TV better than ever
    • tvOS w/ Metal: Apple TV's tvOS operating system leverages many of the same frameworks, technologies, and concepts that you are already familiar with for Apple's iOS found in iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Metal is a technology found in Apple TV that allows tvOS to support highly immersive apps. It also enables Apple TV to squeeze maximum performance from its A8 chip, making your experiences on the new Apple TV more lifelike and exciting than ever.

    Wired & Wireless Network Connectivity: Apple TV offers both wired (Ethernet) and wireless (WiFi) network connectivity. It is equipped with an Ethernet (RJ-45) port which supports a 10/100BASE-T Ethernet wired network. It also features built-in WiFi (802.11ac; 2.4GHz) that supports a wireless WiFi network.

    Note: You can transfer your WiFi network and password and Apple ID account information automatically to Apple TV from your Apple iPod touch/iPhone/iPad with iOS 9.1 or later.

    HDMI 1.4: Apple TV is fitted with an HDMI 1.4 output to connect to your TV & home entertainment system. The App TV's HDMI output supports up to 1080p video and 7.1 multi-channel audio.

    Apps: The new Apple TV features a built-in App Store making it more entertaining than ever. Through apps, Apple TV gives you access to the most riveting entertainment content. Apps like Netflix, Hulu, and iTunes have full catalogs of hit movies and TV shows. HBO NOW and SHOWTIME bring you Hollywood blockbusters and original series. You'll also find your favorite college and professional sports. Breaking news and weather. Fun stuff just for kids. Educational programming, music concerts, and more.

    • iTunes: Apple TV makes it easy to catch all the latest entertainment on iTunes. You can rent or purchase recent box office hits and cinema classics, plus enjoy bonus content with iTunes Extras. You also have access to single episodes and full seasons of popular current and vintage TV shows. Many movies are available the same day they come out on DVD, and TV shows are available the day after they air.
    • Entertainment: Subscribe to HBO and SHOWTIME right from Apple TV; no cable or satellite subscription required. With HBO NOW, you get instant access to HBO's award-winning original programming, sports exclusives, as well as the latest Hollywood blockbusters. SHOWTIME presents your favorite SHOWTIME Original Series, hit movies, live sports, comedy specials, and more. You can also get instant access to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Watch everything from classics to recent Hollywood blockbusters to original programming on Netflix. With a subscription to Hulu, you can watch current and previous seasons of TV shows from ABC, Fox, NBC, Comedy Central, MTV, The CW, and Univision. And enjoy classic films from the Criterion Collection, as well as original shows.
    • Sports: Get full-season sports subscriptions from the NBA, NHL, and MLB. Subscribers can watch live or replay regular season games on demand, while non-subscribers can still get real-time scores, full-season stats, standings, and video highlights.

    Favorite & Most Recent Apps: You can move your most-used apps to the top row of the Home screen for faster access. You can also double-click the Home button on the remote and you'll see the apps you've used most recently used without have to go all the way back to the Apple TV's Home screen.

    Siri Remote: The new Siri remote offers both voice & touch-surface control which makes finding what you want to watch on TV fun & fast. Thanks to Bluetooth, you don't even have to worry about where you point the remote; the new Apple TV will pick up your commands from anywhere in the room.

    • Voice Control: There's no easier way to interact with something across the room than using your voice, and now the Siri Remote lets you do that with Apple TV. Dual microphones on the remote allow Siri to hear your commands clearly, even if there's background noise. Simply say what movie or show you want to watch, and Siri finds it for you, without having to click through multiple menus to get there. Siri understands a wide range of commands, and intuitively applies them to the current context whenever possible. Siri doesn't talk back to you on Apple TV like it does on iPhone and other devices, but it'll carry out your request and display the results onscreen.
      • Movie & TV Show Searches: With Siri, you can quickly search for a movie or TV show across popular services, including content apps such as iTunes and Netflix. All your viewing options are displayed on the screen, so you can see where a movie or show can be found. You'll also see if it's available to rent, buy, or watch with a subscription. With Siri, you can continue to make follow-up commands during a search until you find exactly what you want.
      • Other Siri Functions: Siri doesn't just let you search for movies and TV shows; ask Siri to show you sports scores, control playback, pull up the weather, access your settings, and check your stocks. You can even tell Siri to reduce loud sounds, which boosts dialogue and softens music and sound effects, so you don't wake up the whole house when you're watching a late-night movie. Or if you can't understand a line from a show, ask "What did he just say?" And Siri will skip back and temporarily turn on closed captioning, so you can see what you missed.
    • Touch-Surface Controls: The glass Touch surface on the new remote was engineered to provide an experience that feels both fluid and precise. What your finger does on the remote is exactly and immediately what it does on your screen. You can use your thumb to swipe, scroll, select, and easily navigate around your screen. Which means no more endless clicking of arrow buttons to find what you want. You can move your thumb in any direction on the remote's Touch-surface and the action is mirrored on your TV screen. Once you find what you want to watch, simply click anywhere on the glass Touch-surface to make your selection. You can even swipe quickly with a sweeping motion to fast-forward and rewind across large amounts of time. Or swipe with smaller, more precise movements to go almost frame-by-frame.
    • TV & Universal Remotes: You can configure the Siri Remote to turn your TV on or off, change the input to your Apple TV, and even control the volume. You can also use any infrared remote to control Apple TV. You just need to let the other remote learn the signals that the Siri Remote generates.
    Note: The Siri Remote has a rechargeable battery inside. With typical usage, you'll need to charge it a few times a year. An alert appears on the TV screen when the remote battery is running low. Connect one end of the included Lightning-to-USB cable to the Lightning port on the bottom of the Siri Remote, and then connect the other end to a computer's USB port or to a 3rd party USB/AC power adapter (sold separately).

    Gaming: The same Siri remote you use to watch Apple TV can also be used to play video gaming apps that are available on Apple TV. The Siri Remote doubles as a dynamic game controller, with the Touch surface acting as a virtual directional pad. It even has a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope. The new Apple TV also supports MFi-based controllers (sold separately) that let you run, jump, shoot, kick, throw, & punch.

    AirPlay: With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac to your HDTV. Peer-to-peer AirPlay makes it easy for guests to share content from their Mac or iOS device directly to your TV; without learning your WiFi password or having to connect to your home network. And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can display the screen of your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac on your HDTV.

    Music & Radio: Apple TV gives you access to Apple Music and your My Music Library.

    • Apple Music: Access millions of songs on Apple Music (requires a subscription). Listen to dozens of hand-curated ad-free radio stations and Beats 1 radio brought to you by Apple Music. You can also create your own custom stations, based on your pick of artist, song, or genre.
    • My Music: Listen to music from your iCloud Music Library, including music you add from Apple Music, your iTunes purchases, and songs uploaded from your computer, along with your iTunes Match library.

    Videos & Photos: Apple TV lets you use your "My Photo Stream" and "iCloud Photo Sharing" to view the photos and videos shared from your iCloud account on your connected television. You can choose to view your photo albums as a slideshow with Apple TV. You can even use one of your photos as the Apple TV screensaver.

    • My Photo Stream: Turned on by default on your iOS devices, My Photo Stream automatically uploads new photos taken on an iOS device to your other devices that use My Photo Stream, including Apple TV.
    • iCloud Photo Sharing: You can view albums of photos and videos shared from another iOS device or Mac using iCloud Photo Sharing, or view other people's shared albums if you're subscribed.

    Home Sharing: Apple TV lets you access your iTunes account on your Windows PC or Mac, so you can watch & listen to content saved in your iTunes library on your computer from your connected television & home entertainment system.

    Bluetooth: You can connect a Bluetooth device to the Apple TV; such as an MFi-certified (made for iPod touch/iPhone/iPad) game controller, Bluetooth headphones, or other accessories.

    Storage Management: Apple TV streams video and music, but it stores apps locally. The more apps you download to Apple TV, the more storage is used up. At some point you may get a warning that you're running out of disk space. If so, you can remove apps to free up space.

    Accessibility: A variety of accessibility features help you get the most out of your new Apple TV. If you are blind, have low vision, or are deaf or hard of hearing, you can easily find and enjoy your favorite entertainment. These accessibility features include VoiceOver, Zoom, Bold Text, Increase Contrast, Reduce Motion, Closed Caption & SDH Support, and Accessibility Shortcut.

    Cinematic Screen Savers: When you're not actively using Apple TV, it displays aerial HD videos of stunning locations around the world on your TV screen. Shot specifically for Apple TV, these dreamy landscapes drift across your TV, turning your big screen into a mesmerizing work of art.

    Detachable AC Power Cord: The Apple TV operates off of standard household current using its internal power supply and detachable AC power cord.

    3 questions already asked

    Is there a monthly charge?
    [ Nicholas  Jan 17, 2016 ]
    11 answers
    Apple TV is like a big iPad. No charges are required, yet you may wish to purchase a subscription to some apps. Many free stuff like an iPad. You can find many of what you watch on cable for free. If you have a cable or satellite subscription, you can use it to access almost all content you would on cable, even if that was at another residence. You need a good internet source, wifi or Ethernet to access content, just like an iPad.
    [ Eric  Jan 20, 2016 ]
    No, unless you voluntarily purchase a stand alone service like Showtime, HBO Now. etc
    [ MICHAEL  Jan 19, 2016 ]
    No, unless you pay for an app or service such as Netflix.
    [ KARIN  Jan 19, 2016 ]
    No, the device itself is free, and there are free titles available for it. But there is some content available for purchase.
    [ Michael  Jan 19, 2016 ]
    There is no monthly charge to own an Apple TV. You do however have to own movies on iTunes or subscriptions to things like Hulu, Netflix or other apps to use on your Apple TV
    [ Andy  Jan 19, 2016 ]
    There is no monthly charge for the Apple TV, however, various apps do require paid subscriptions (Netflix, Hulu). I believe some apps for certain broadcasters are free as long as you log in with your cable or satellite provider information.
    [ Paul  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    no, not for the basic Apple TV usage. Showtime, HBO, and other premium channels require a standalone streaming subscription, or subscription through your cable or satellite provider. I love the new format, touchpad and voice search. I'm also a big fan of HGTV, Zillow, and a lot of other free AppleTV apps.
    [ MARTHA G  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    There is only monthly charges for specific services like HBO or Netflix. But no set monthly charge.
    [ Jonathan  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    No monthly charge -- you connect to a streaming service (i.e. netflix or hulu). There is an app store where you can purchase shows, movies, apps, etc, but it is not required.
    [ Elliot  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    Not for the Apple TV. Just the apps, which you can voluntary purchase (Netflix, HBO...).
    [ Phillip  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    There is no monthly charge to use the Apple TV and many of the apps, but some apps like HBO do charge a fee.
    [ Michael  Jan 18, 2016 ]
    Can you get local and world new with this ?
    [ Michael S.  Jun 25, 2016 ]
    1 answer
    If you subscribe to the local channels programming is available on Apple. World news is available through Apps but may not be up to the minute.
