Video walkthrough and review of the new Apple TV

Wed, Sep 29, 2010


PC Mag reviews and takes us through the new Apple TV software. Regarding $0.99 rentals of TV Episodes, PC Mag issues a note of caution.

You can buy or rent a show on iTunes via your computer or iOS 4.2 device, start watching it on that device, and finish watching it by streaming to your Apple TV. However, this is a one-way street. You can’t rent something on Apple TV and watch it on your iPod touch later. You also cannot purchase any content on the Apple TV—rentals only. Therefore, I advise you to purchase or rent all of your content via your computer or iOS device (after the update). By doing this, you ensure that a video you can be watched back and forth between all of your iOS, computer, and Apple TV devices.

They also have some unboxing photos over here, you know, if you’re into that sorta thing.

    Nice Review, I just Received mine 3 minutes ago from FedEx, The only problem with his review was that the iMac hasn’t shipped with a remote since 2007.

    So those of you who use Apple Products already are aware of this blunder he made.

    Though a small one, I have seen many people complain that their iMac didn’t come with a remote due to this review, and they called Apple to complain…

    Really.. Read the Items included list on your product manifest & supplied by Apple and even directly on their Website.

    This guy must have a old Mac to reference a Remote control being included.
