4.0 out of 5 stars Great product from a trusted brand., 6 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Apple MD199B/A TV (official UK version) (Electronics)
Bought this mainly so I can watch Netflix movies on my big tv (as my Samsung smart tv won't install the Netflix app). As you would expect with Apple, everything just works out of the box and is easy to set up. The only thing i've spent any time figuring out is that my TV doesn't pass-thru Dolby 5.1 audio, so I had to connect the Apple TV via optical cable straight into my soundbar (rather than via the tv) and switch on the Dolby option in the 'Apple TV set-up menu' and it works fine now, but that's Samsung's fault, not Apple's!

We also have ipads and iphone's in the house which work seamlessly with the Apple TV, playing movies and listening to itunes music. Their is also a YouTube app which I found to be very good.

The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because I think it's time Apple starting thinking about other regions more (not just the US of A) and gave us BBC iPlayer, and some of the 'on demand' channel aps like for the likes of itv, C4 and C5. Then Apple TV would be perfecto!

It's not that apple won't give you Iplayer. It's that the BBC won't give apple Iplayer due to them being too applecentric and won't let other devices, other than airplay, stream to their device.

A 'trusted brand' which intentionally designs products to break down and expects you to pay a premium for the privilege. A company whose sweatshop factories in China have some of the worst working conditions on earth. And then there's their rampant, mercenary tax dodging schemes, and, of course, iTunes, where they force consumers and other music buyers to iTunes-only sites by restricting content purchases to the country from which the customers' payment details originated, which in turn hiked music prices exponentially. No one should ever trust Apple but, alas, we - the serfs - do. Sorry, rant over
