Review of Apple TV
Understanding the new Apple TV prefix, which was not updated, but a new one – yes, you can still rent a movie for the evening, but you can also set up karaoke if you want and sing on TV, or play, or watch Comedy Club.
It comes with many extra features and specifications at low budget price with 4K support. The result of pictures and videos are very clear and you can easily attach this with any Apple Tv. There are 2×2, only the choice of TV shows is limited. I am personally waiting for the Mediated application to calmly watch new series of favorite TV series on TV, films.

When telling or showing someone the possibilities of Apple TV, they can immediately argue, they say, because all this is in advanced modern TVs and without any consoles, there is a Smart TV, Android TV and other shells that can give the opportunity to play or buy movies in third-party services . All this is true. But there are at least a few reasons to buy Apple TV:
You can Check and Buy From Amazon
- If you have a very good TV, but without any shells.
- If you have a very good TV, there is a shell, but it does not suit you.
- If you have been using iTunes for a long time, there are hundreds of movies and music albums in the library and I would like to launch all this content on TV and rent movies.
- If there is a desire to play games on TV, but you have never done this and there are doubts about the convenience of this process, then it is definitely worth trying Apple TV.
Design and Construction
Compared to the previous version, the console has become larger, the connector for connecting the optical cable has disappeared, well, everything else remains the same. Here is a complete list of connectors and not only:
- HDMI 1.43;
- Supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac with MIMO technology;
- Ethernet port 10 / 100BASE-T;
- IR receiver;
- USB-C for service and support;
- Built-in power supply.
The possibilities of the operating system are very good in the future, but even now the device is not perceived as something unfinished, raw, neither I nor those I have given to try the prefix have such a feeling. On the contrary, the thing is perceived extremely positively. If you already had Apple TV and you are used to renting movies there, then you can do it here, only in passing you can install Ru Tube, watch Dances or TV shows, many people like Comedy Club – you can watch Comedy.
There are 2×2, only the choice of TV shows is limited. I am personally waiting for the Mediated application to calmly watch new series of favorite TV series on TV, films – there, by the way, is a very good selection of movies, there is a lot of this that you will not find anywhere else.
The choice of applications is already great now, here you and The Nat Geo TV, and HBO NOW, and the news, and YouTube – you know, there in general, you can hang on the day if desired. All applications resemble analogs for iOS, that is, these are video directories, select and watch. The quality is good, I use Apple TV with an old Samsung TV, besides Full HD, I have nothing to boast about.
Performance and specifications
Apple, as always, took care of people with disabilities. Three times you press the Menu button, and VoiceOver is turned on, and the menu items are voiced, here’s a list of all the Universal Access items:
- Bold font;
- Increase contrast;
- Reduced movement;
- Support for closed captioning and subtitling for people with hearing impairments;
- Keyboard shortcuts (I don’t quite understand this).
A bit about video and audio formats:
- H.264 video up to 1080p, 60 frames / s, high or main profile level 4.2 or lower;
- H.264 video, base profile 3.0 or lower with AAC-LC sound up to 160 kbps, 48 kHz, stereo sound in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov formats;
- MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640×480 pixels, 30 frames / s, simple profile with AAC-LC sound up to 160 kbps, 48 kHz, stereo sound in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov formats;
- HE-AAC (V1), AAC (from 16 to 320 kbps), protected by AAC (for files from iTunes Store), MP3 (from 16 to 320 kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3 and 4 ), Apple Lossless, AIFF and WAV, Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Plus 7.1.
Let me remind you again that Apple TV is sensitive to the quality of the Internet connection, you can connect to the network via Wi-Fi, and using an Ethernet cable, this method seems to me an anachronism. Although you can fend off – the speed and reliability of the cable connection is higher. Well, if not confused by another cable in the living room, your will.
The heart of Apple TV is the A8 processor with 64-bit architecture, the console works smartly, the transition from section to section is fast, from flaws – only the lack of thumbnails for some movies on the main page, but there is already a tvOS problem. For all the time of use, there were no app crashes, I would like to get some kind of intelligible menu of running applications, like in iOS.
