Your computer is the centre of your digital life. Your TV is the centre of your entertainment life. But what if you want to play everything you’ve collected on your computer on your TV? Pair your computer with Apple TV and play the music and video from your iTunes library – plus your photo slideshows – on the box.
Apple TV puts lots of free content from the internet on your widescreen TV. YouTube videos, podcasts – even stunning HD video podcasts. Not to mention your photos (and your friends’ photos) from Flickr or .Mac Web Galleries. They all appear on the biggest screen in the house, ready to share from the sofa.
Connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV via an HDMI cable (sold separately). This single cable delivers both audio and video. If your HDMI port is in use, or if your TV doesn’t have an HDMI port, connect using component video cables with analog audio cables or with an optical audio cable (all sold separately). See above for TV compatibility.
Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi technology, Apple TV connects to your wireless network to download content from the Internet, so you only have to connect it to your TV, not to an ADSL or cable modem. Just join your existing wireless network from the Apple TV setup screen and you’ll be buying music from your sofa in minutes.
If the best sound system in your house is connected to your TV, why play your iTunes library anywhere else? My Music lets you play up to 36,000 songs from your computer on the big screen (and the big speakers). You can build your library from Apple TV, too: browse more than 6 million songs, listen to a free preview, then click to buy. It’s like visiting a music superstore. From your sofa. And any music you buy from Apple TV automatically syncs to your computer, so you can transfer it to your iPod.
