With AirPlay, it’s simple to play content from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac on your TV.1 And finding whatever you’re in the mood for — from any Apple TV content provider — is quick and easy thanks to a beautiful and consistent interface.2 Learn more about what’s on Apple TV
Quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand, Apple TV sits neatly on a TV stand or in a crowded media cabinet. When it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light. And the included Apple Remote makes it easy to get to your favorite entertainment.
To set up Apple TV, just plug the power cord into the wall and connect Apple TV to your high-definition TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Getting started couldn’t be simpler — just hold your iPhone or iPad with Bluetooth turned on near Apple TV and it will learn about your home network and receive your account settings automatically.3 Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV using your Wi-Fi network, that’s all you need to do. Except make popcorn.
