Sleek, sexy and now with loads of content, the Apple TV is a genuine must-have for iTunes users

A genuine joy to use; vast array of great-quality downloadable content available on-demand; excellent sonic performance

During his keynote speech at Macworld in January 07, Steve Jobs announced two new products. The iPhone may not be perfect yet. The other, Apple TV, is a limited device that's, as of yet, unsuited to the UK. Disappointing ...

Connects your Mac to your TV, Beautiful menu system, Connect up to five Macs

Only works with expensive televisions, Video format options are limiting, We still can't buy movies or TV shows

A good idea ruined by limited compatibility and a lack of UK focus

Apple iTunes TV review

 

Leaving aside all the music you can buy from the iTunes Store, an increasing amount of TV content can be accessed from this entertainment portal.

It works with Apple's customary ease of use, the quality is good and the selection of programmes extensive, but we're not convinced of the economics of paying nearly £2 an episode, when there are free alternatives.
