Apple TV - Only £87.39 Delivered @ Amazon

Apple TV only £87.39 delivered at Amazon. Cheapest I can find at the moment compared to other online retailers such as Play.com where this retails for around £99 and next cheapest to this price is £93.94 at Dixons. Don't forget to collect Nectar Points too! It's a Marmite thing in my opinion you either love it or hate it!

Apple TV:

Apple TV redefines what your HDTV can do. A new design provides instant access to your favourite content. Rent or buy HD films. Buy HD TV programmes. Listen to your iTunes music or Internet radio on your home cinema speakers. Show off your photos in high definition. Even watch YouTube. All from the comfort of your sofa.

Our most entertaining design yet

The sleek new Apple TV has been completely retuned for your entertainment. It's 80 per cent smaller than the previous generation - even with a built-in power supply. Which makes it perfect for sitting neatly on a widescreen TV stand or squeezing into a crowded media cabinet. Not only does the new Apple TV have an amazingly small footprint, it's also incredibly energy efficient. It stays cool without a fan, so it's never noisy. And when it's not filling your living room with drama, romance and comedy, it uses less power than a night light.

All streaming. No hassle

Everything you want to watch - films, TV programmes, photos and more - streams wirelessly to Apple TV. That way you don’t have to worry about managing storage or syncing to your iTunes library. HD film rentals play over the Internet to your widescreen TV, while music and photos stream from your computer. Either way, all you have to do is click and play. Since Apple TV features a powerful A4 processor, it streams everything effortlessly, without frozen screens or stutters. Video looks crisp and clear. And just like watching a DVD, you can fast-forward through opening credits, pause for a popcorn break or replay a hilarious scene until you memorise every line.
Get connected with Apple TV

Setting up Apple TV is about as simple as it gets. Just plug the power lead into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV, that’s all you need. Well, that and a comfy sofa.
HD Films. Instant film rentals--It puts the cinema in home cinema

No more waiting for DVDs or watching stale blockbusters on cable. With Apple TV, you get instant access to the hottest Hollywood titles and new releases. Popular films are never out of stock and you can rent as many as you want. That's perfect for those spontaneous film nights (or afternoons or mornings). Search by top films, title or genre. Read a quick film review and watch the trailer. Once you find what you're looking for, simply press Play, and in seconds, you're watching the opening credits with cinema-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.* SD rentals start from just £2.49, and HD rentals from £3.49. You have 30 days to start watching, and once you begin, you can watch as many times as you want in 48 hours. (*Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound is not available with all HD rentals.)

YouTube, MobileMe and Flickr. Tune in to web favourites--The Internet's most wanted. Now on your HDTV

Put down your mouse and grab a remote. In addition to films and TV programmes, Apple TV gives you access to some of your favourite Internet content - and makes it even more entertaining by giving it the film-star treatment on your HDTV. Browse and play YouTube videos, watch your favourite HD podcasts and listen to Internet radio through your home entertainment speakers. Apple TV even lets you access Flickr photos and MobileMe galleries. From the biggest screen in the house.

Photos, music and videos. Be VIP of your TV

Turn your TV into an HD photo album

With Apple TV, every megapixel of every photo looks amazing. Big, bold and in glorious HD: it's the treatment your digital life deserves. So instead of huddling around a computer screen, you and your friends can relive memories from a comfy spot in your living room. Or add some life to the party with a photo slideshow. Select an album, pick a slideshow theme and finish it off with a soundtrack featuring music from your iTunes library.

Your music. Your speakers. The perfect duet

You've got tons of music on your computer. But the best speakers in the house are part of your home cinema system. Apple TV connects them without missing a beat. Your iTunes music library streams directly to Apple TV. So you can sit back, choose a tune and enjoy the music.

Give your digital collection some airtime

Those films and TV programmes you bought on iTunes don't have to stay on your computer. For maximum entertainment, stream your digital collection over the air to your Apple TV. Just don’t forget to get the best place on the sofa.

iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. The perfect companions to Apple TV

Channel surf, tap and flick with the Remote app

Control Apple TV using your iPhone or iPod touch. Download the Remote app free from the App Store. And with a flick of your finger, you can rent new films and browse your media collection. Remote uses the same easy-to-use interface you already use to browse music and video on your Multi-Touch device. So straightaway, you know how to navigate. If you want to find something specific, use your device's QWERTY keyboard to quickly tap out the title instead of clicking letters on the Apple TV screen. Then keep tapping to play, fast-forward, rewind and pause to your finger's content.

If it's on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, it's on Apple TV**

You can already stream music and video from your computer to Apple TV. With AirPlay, you can stream music and video from your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch too. So if you feel like watching a film you have on one of your devices, you don't need to rent or buy it again. Just tap to start playing content on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then tap again to instantly stream whatever you're watching - or listening to - directly to Apple TV. (**AirPlay is coming soon and will be available on all iOS 4 devices.)

How it works:
Start watching a film or TV programme on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Tap the AirPlay icon and choose Apple TV.
Whatever you’re watching will instantly begin streaming to your widescreen TV.

Apple TV redefines what your HDTV can do - yes it forces it to only output 720p and not 1080p. Bit silly of apple in these 1080p days to restrict a device to 720p!. Maybe the next version based on the A5 cpu will do 1080p.
#2
Agreed. I suspect it may have something to do with 1080p data sizes and the transfer of such huge movie files via iTunes and the reliability of streaming such large amounts of data via WiFi, anyone have any insight on this?
Good price.
#3
If your wanting xbmc this is the cheapest suitable device.

I have a hacked wdtv live and one of these with xbmc on. This is far better if you dont mind not having 1080p. IMO

Grrrr....i was going to wait for this but its a great bit of kit. Im a big fan of apple, i know a lot of people think its over priced junk BUT...it works. You take it out of the box and it works, anything ive bought from apple does just that. Kids have ipod touch's, i have an iMac, iphone, airtunes etc and they sync and work great. Id like to say the same about comparable products by other companies that sell cheaper items but on many occasions i just feel let down. (Anyway better get back to working for apple marketing) JOKE. I think its a good price anyway!

of course it will. Its Apples business model to leave out features to make the next model more attractive
from a business point of view its a great system

Anyone who is familiar with xbmc. If i get one for xbmc, will it be the full fledged version, that you would get on a htpc. Or is the iOS version a stripped down, light (crappier) version ?

Have just bought this but just wondering what is xmbc. I'm guessing it's some sort of way to hack into the Apple TV, but wouldn't this make the warranty void? Thanks in advance :D

Heat added for the price, but if you already have a PS3 or 360, it already has all the functionality you'll need movie-wise.

Full version, but will frequently stutter on 1080p videos as the Apple TV doesn't have the power to cope with them.

Looks good, but do you have to use content you bought on itunes?

You can put XBMC on a WDTV Live? I didn't know that. But this is better with XBMC; For what reason?

Thanks, just been doing some reading up and it seems that you can only stream files off the network with this, and not play them off a external HDD :(

Xbmc is an app you can download for it, it is a sort of alternative UI with alot more customisable features, eg, it will get all your movie and tv show info, covers etc automatically. You can get loads of different themes for it.

An example of what can be done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLzdLOO3sYI&feature=player_embedded

I've had Apple TV since Christmas. It's a great bit of kit. Perfect for showing off pictures to a large group instead of everyone crowded round a laptop. I stream from my iPhone, iPad and MacBook pro. I would recommend it.

Much nicer to use, looks cool, tvcatchup, iplayer, 4od.
#21
bought one on release date, took it back day after. Thing was quoting 6 hours to download a movie to play so never got to stream one. forums said that was fairly normal, not sure if they resolved in the end. anyway, got a ps3 instead, i can stream, store, play 1080 blu rays etc and play games

maybe this has been resolved now. dunno, but worth reading up on

Didn't know tv catchup worked on wdtv that's pretty cool if true

LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrader due out in a few weeks and has the potential to do so much more than the apple tv

Bought one instead of an AC ryan wish I had not.

Had to rebulid PC to get it stream, after a few hours on apple help line trying to get itunes to share.

Wireless networking can be a bit hit and miss, Ok for a bed room, use my Blu ray for streaming in living room.
Great price, but you may regreat buying

Ohh lol I never knew it stood for that so thank you. Probably because I have never owned an Xbox.

This is a great bit of kit when xbmc is on it. Bought mine when I was on holiday in the states. I never use the actual ios software it just stays in xbmc all the time. Streams perfect over WiFi via my nas. Only had a couple of issues as already mentioned when trying to stream 1080p videos. Great bit of kit at
£100

The ATV2 can "do 1080p" but it will output as 720p.

Ordered one this morning Hot for me.

Had one for just over a week, got a refurb from Apple. XBMC runs very well, anyone know how to change the time to a UK time?

Whats the best skin to use?
#30
Have one running XBMC in my bedroom replacing an original XBOX. No comparison really - tiny, silent and plays pretty much anything (not .wtv as yet). Will only get better with future releases. Bargain.
#31
How do I get xbmc on a wdtv?
#32
I have one of these, and out of the box, unless you have an extensive itunes library, then is pretty limited IMO....BUT the moment this thing becomes jailbroken...WOW!
I have a PS3...and i've read the comments about people being happy with the PS3 media player...really??!! OK you are comparing a £250 product to an £80 one.
The Apple TV with XBMC (granted these are mainly XBMC features) DOES:
organise your library
download Cover / fan art
Seasonalise / Episode TV Shows
Download synopsis / Genre / Actor info etc
Tell you which videos you have watched
Remembers where to resume a video after watching a few other items etc
Skinnable.
Plays pretty much all formats including the MKV's

The PS3 does:
play back local files (no biggie for me, all my stuff is on my NAS)
1080p (as long as they're in a valid file format, so no mkv's etc)
errr...thats it.

Don't get me wrong, I own a PS3 and it is my main media device downstairs, and its what we use when watching avi's etc the only thing is there is so much functionality missing.
For an £80 device that can be hacked and XBMC installed on, the Apple TV does the job. I find it more than lives up to the expectations, and especially when i'm running it on a 40" LCD in the bedroom, i don't find myself sitting there thinking "what...no 1080?"! Also have you seen the size of the thing...its tiny!!

Hot from me, and ordering another one for downstairs, so that I don't have to run the risk of a PS3 that overheats when you throw 2 or 3 1080p movies at it.
#33
Pedantic! you know what i mean....read what i said, take it out of the box, sync it and snd it works. UNLIKE a lot of other products.

PS3 runs MKv and any other format fine if you use TVversity or PS3 media streamer. Yes you need to have a PC/NAS on to stream, but you do for Apple TV, which cant play local files.

All Apple devices take hours to stream a rented/bought movie from the store.

You are better off grabbing someone's old small form factor P4 or Athlon X2 for free or £50 tops, add a £40 low profile HDMI card and you have access to everything.

IMO useless piece of kit.

PS3 is fine if you a) like the sound of fans b) dont mind having to screw around all the time to get things going.

I was using a ps3 and tversity/ ps3 media server both of which I found to be awful. Rewind and fast forward being particuarly crap if I recall correctly. I mean it did work but was so limited. it could play pause and stop and that was about it. Plus it would have the occasional freeze and de-sync. And the server was an 2gb core duo, so should have had plenty to help it along.

I cant comment for the device about streaming from itunes, but if I were to get this and use it to put xbmc on, I would have a lovely tiny media centre for my living room/bedroom. While this is far from an all in one solution, your suggestion to build your own pc and configure it, hope it wont make much noise, put an os on it etc etc, may work for you but for others, myself included, I just want something nice, neat, that will do the job as intended.

To say it is useleess is really not the case. I have an iphone and ipad and they (constuting all apple products, as you have suggested) do not take the "hours" as you have quoted, to stream from the apple store. Maybe this is a problem you face, or a limited number of others. I note no-one has given their actual bb speeds to perhaps give a reason as to why they themselves are experiencing difficulties. Mine is 20mb (real world speed on virgin). I have only just upgraded from 10mb. This may or may not be the case as to why I do not experience difficulty.

I dont mind if people comment on here about their experiences, but some comments are just so throwaway its unreal.

Rant over!

Cheers

I can agree its a matter of the item being fit for personal purpose. I havn't had those issues with PS3 though typically I play all files locally from an external drive, unless its unsupported (in which case I use a PC), I certainly cant hear the fans, however it is placed near a floor standing speaker.

I'm om 10mb Virgin, the 3 movies I have rented have taken 2-3 hours to download ready for use (on an iPad), it's good to hear this may be a network speed issue instead of hardware failings to be sure.
#37
I bought one of these for the bedroom when it first came out, then took it back - for me the limitation of not being able to use the remote to change the volume was frustrating - also it did not integrate with my IPhone 3G as promised by the dude at the Apple shop - you have to have a 3GS or 4G to allow the media sharing. I found it quite limited in what it could do.

I love using Remote with my Airport Express to stream music around the house, but this felt too limited - maybe in an update or 2 it will be better. In the end I got the £299 Sony 32" Full HD TV I found on HUKD and with DNLA and integrated freeview HD I found it a much neater solution.

Never used XBMC, but these days I can't be arsed messing around jailbreaking stuff! :D

Heat added for the price, but if you already have a PS3 or 360, it already has all the functionality you'll need movie-wise.

indeed i have both although i only use my ps3, but i can stream anything i like using tversity and it plays fine.

i thought these boxes had hdd so you could put all your dvd movies on them so you dont need the discs. does anyone know if such a device exists?
