The future of television starts with apps. You already use apps like Netflix, Hulu, HBO NOW and WatchESPN to watch TV on your mobile devices. And that’s where TV on your big screen is headed. The new Apple TV is designed around this reality. And the Siri Remote with Touch surface takes the effort out of searching through all these apps to find something great to watch. In addition, the App Store brings games and apps to your television with big experiences created specifically for the living room. Welcome to the new Apple TV. It’s where TV is headed.
It’s all about apps.
Apps are the future of television. Think about it. On your mobile devices and computers, you already use apps such as Netflix, Hulu, WatchESPN, and iTunes to watch TV shows. And that’s exactly where TV in the living room is headed. Apps have liberated television. They allow you to make individual choices about what you want to watch. And when and where you want to watch it. With the new Apple TV and its powerful new tvOS, developers are creating experiences that will change what you expect from your big screen, making your TV feel as personal as your iPhone or iPad.
All the entertainment your TV can handle.
iTunes movies and TV shows. Netflix and Hulu. ABC and Disney. HBO and SHOWTIME. Live sports and news. And so much more. If it’s worth watching, there’s definitely an app for that.
Games and apps on TV. It’s gonna be huge.
The App Store makes its TV debut. Think big, exciting games. Apps that turn your living room into a fitness studio or a classroom. Even multiperson experiences that redefine family game night. We can’t wait to see where developers take this.
The television finally gets some technology love.
With the advent of iPhone and iPad, many of the big innovations and newest technologies have focused on the small screens that fit in our pockets or that we carry in our hands. But it’s time our big screens share in that technology and get an equally innovative experience. With the new Apple TV and tvOS, a redesigned interface, and the Siri Remote, there’s never been a better time to be a TV.
A TV experience you’ve never experienced.
Your TV screen is all the way across the room. That’s why the experience of using Apple TV is designed to let you feel like you’re interacting directly with your TV, not separated from it.
Ask more of your television.
With all these new apps on your TV, what’s the best way to find something to watch? Just ask Siri. With the Siri Remote, you tell your TV exactly what you want to watch. Or ask Siri to give you a few options, like “Find me some funny TV shows.” Siri automatically searches across popular services like iTunes, Netflix, and more, so you don’t have to dig through each app individually. You can even ask Siri to launch a specific app. The Siri Remote takes the work out of watching TV.

Share your experience on a product with others.
I like it. Some unexpected limitations, such as content access to a number of the network portals., but the quality that I can access is fulfilling. I purchased the Apple TV primarily to access tv.jw.org, And for that purpose, the Apple TV is a fine performer.
The Apple TV was my first step in getting rid of cable TV. It paid for itself within two months by reducing my bill to Internet only. The interface is well designed and allows for quite a few streaming services in addition to easily managing content that I already own.
