should make plain that price includes shipping. very good deal i believe

Unlock the thing and its not a bad device at all

Good price if this is what you are after, I'd hold out for the next version that should have an A5 CPU and handle 1080p, that's just my 2p's worth.

Yeah I have a sneaking suspicion that the reason these have dropped in price is due to a new model (referenced in the new iOS firmware Beta) coming out. The big question is when will they be out?

cold from me. what's the point in a HD movie player that can't actually handle HD? WD Live is a better choice, by all accounts.

This version handles 1080p once its jailbroken

It can accept a 1080p video stream but the hardware in the box can only output 720p.

I love my ATV jailbroke or not, with any IOS device streaming music, watching films is great.
Without it jailbroken, its only 720p and has to be annoying file formats (thank god handbreak etc) but with the speed of my Broadband connection at home and lack of 1080p content of all the tv shows etc out there in comparrison to 720p versions it still looks great and does the job amazingly!

AirPlay is what this is about. If you're looking for a WD Live style network/USB streamer device you may as well get the WD Live.

I think I'd rather pay the extra £4 and have the peace of mind that it's coming from Amazon.

If it ever materialises. There was nothing stopping Apple putting an A5 in one for months now.

Meanwhile, all the industry talk is about this now.

Why? if anything ever goes wrong you should deal direct with Apple anyway. Makes no difference where it's from.

Do these have bluetooth/usb host? Just wondering if theres a possibility of onlive being available on it.

no 1080p on iTunes rentals yet

hoping the next version will bring more options

I think £80 is about right for this anyway, $99 in the usa.

It's has it all but not available if not jailbroken.
And you will find it harder to jailbreak the most modern devices since they contact gs.apple.com immediately a network connection is established and OTA upgrade themselves.
Jailbreak it, modify the /etc/hosts file with a dummy IP address for the Apple update servers. Reboot quickly then add your xbmc / webserver / streaming packages after. Don't delay!

Lol this doesn't even output 1080p... it's only 720p! even my Samsung Galaxy S2 can handle 1080p

Buy the WDTV, much better and more powerful and delivers True 1080p picture and supports Bluray ISO's.

but I'm sure there's idiots out there that will buy this because it's made by Apple. brainwashed fanboys pay a premium for limited and restricted products!

COLD.
720p only is hilarious.
But people still defend it

Jailbreak -> Install XBMC -> Install ICEFilms plugin = media heaven.

Hot.

So do we have to Jailbreak before we connect to our home network?

I bet its fun round your house, all gathered round your mobile phone watching the latest film, lol

It's horses for courses, Apple win hands down when it comes to digital content and thats coming from somebody who has owned a WDTV for the last few years. The WDTV is a good player but i will "drop it like it's hot" when Apple bring out a 1080p media player. They are, hands down the best when it comes to user interface and use experience and for that reason I understand why people still buy these even with 720p limitations.

Amazing sarcasm!

I have the WD TV Live. superior product to the Apple TV....FACT!

Ooo an apple product deal, has the flame war started yet?

Personally I'd wait for the next gen model, which hopefully will come around in time for netflix to finally come across the pond. Or failing that it'll be coming out so soon as to have you kicking yourself for buying this version

Seeing as you are going to be using XBMC on it anyway, what has Apple's UI got to do with it?

ClaireGoodi

Do I need one?!



Pretty sure the world will keep spinning if you give it a miss.

Look, this is a fantastic device IF it does what you want. Regardless of who makes it, whether there is a better product out there etc.. You should be voting hot or cold based on the price of THIS product and £80 is a very good deal.

You can still jailbreak these if that's what you want to do and shove XBMC and UpdateBeGone on it and leave it.. it will work forever more as a netrwork movie streamer..

Are there alternatives? Yes.
Will it only output 720p? Yes.
Will there be a new version soon? Who knows.. go listen to the rumour mill and make your own mind up.

Hot, nice deal. Would have got one if I hadn't picked up a 1st gen last month.

I assume you should be able to. From TVCatchup or iplayer etc you can stream it to the ATV (to your TV)

I like the idea of one of these jail broken and running XBMC - assume all the airplay stuff and connecting with iphone/ipad would still work.

Can you put XBMC on the WD box or is that a WD interface only?

Can you play games that support AirPlay?

This is what I do with mine - got it set up in the bedroom on a small 22" set - no need for 1080p - I just use my iPhone to watch TVCatchup then flick it over to the TV using Airplay - works brilliantly.

Back to a discussion on the deal. This is available cheaper from very.co.uk for £68.06 if you are a new customer to them and set up a credit account (if you like once you have made the order just pay the outstanding balance with your card straight away)

At very it is £99, use code 23NKF for £25 off making it £74. Then Quidco/Topcashback offer 6% cashback for new customers and they pay this on the value of the goods before discount thus £5.94 cashback.

So in total effective price £68.06. If you can’t click and collect at store it is £72.01 delivered.

Hope this helps some people as it is what I did when I ordered last night-bargain at that price when jailbroken. For me the difference between 720p and 1080p is negligible, as it should be for anyone with a TV 32" or less

To be honest, for the best part of £85 its quite a nifty device if you own one or more iphones and decent surround sound system. It allows you to play your playlists stored on a PC/Mac and content from your iphones.

Its certainly not perfect by a long way, but useful and relatively cheap if you have all your music stored within iTunes.
