Then when you want to switch accounts, you go back there and you'll see "Switch to Account" with the ones you've added listed.

It's a relatively new feature. I think it was added with the previous update.

Went looking but couldn't find details... Will any bluetooth keyboard work or does it have to be Apple branded? I think it's the former, but curious.

The original Apple TV was horrible. I can't believe Apple made that. The new one is triumphant. It's way better than what Google and others have to offer, it's relatively inexpensive, and it works wonderfully with other Apple stuff.

A device that can take video streaming from an iPhone and put it on a TV for $100 is remarkable since there are plenty of analog video transmitters that cost more. But if your ATV is not on wifi, it should act as a wifi router or switch like Airport cards and boxes can. And it could use an App Store and a better video browsing system.

(1) TV Show Folders (and movies) - CANNOT STAND that this feature was taken away back when Gen2 came out. It is ridiculous that it hasn't been implemented when even iTunes sorts by each season now.

(2) Multiple Home Sharing Accounts. It should have access to more than one at a time...useful for big families/roomates.

(3) Output of other aspect ratios when Airplaying the iPad...it would be nice to wirelessly connect to a projector/smartboard for teachers and not have to deal with the black bars.

(4) Apps - sure, def. want them, but not for just anything. i want companies to make app channels and such. That would be a big help.

Great! I'll finally get one.

I was going to get a Lightning HDMI adapter for my iPhone 5 and next iPad, but that costs fully half what an AppleTV does, and cables are awkward. May as well get an AppleTV and go wireless!

I can't confirm, but historically Apple has never limited people from using non-Apple keyboards and mice.

Beware, Netflix does not work over AirPlay! Probably digital rights issues

Can't tell if you're trolling or not, but Airplay Direct is a rumor. Apple never "promised" anything about it.

What other equipment? My ATV did that too because my TV is not HDCP-compliant. So did my TiVO and FiOS cable box when I watched movies. It's BS. I had to get a Cables Unlimited HDCP stripper from a bankrupt Chinese company for $50

Hurrah for: "Send stereo audio from movies, TV shows, and other videos on Apple TV to AirPlay-enabled speakers and devices (including AirPort Express and other Apple TVs)."

...Home theatre set up has become extremely easy

Yeah, it's weird that their iOS app doesn't allow Airplay. Maybe they want people to use the Apple TV's built in Netflix app.

Update: Apple appears to be referring to the new Apple TV model with a code name of J33I, compared to the J33 code name used on the third-generation Apple TV. While we have no direct evidence, it is possible that the "I" simply refers to an international variation of the current box. Just last month, Apple launched iTunes movies in nearly four dozen new countries.


Ok cool. That means that I can live just a little better now and calm down from my panic now that I know that my third-generation TV isn't as obsolete as I originally thought when I first saw this post.

I am not sure what is so new about iTunes Match streaming, I could have sworn I was able to do that before?

It isn't iTunes Match streaming that was added. That was already there. This is iCloud Music Purchases. So basically if you aren't an iTunes Match subscriber, all music you have previously purchased from Apple will be able to streamed from their servers.

Exactly. Why bother with the Netflix iOS app over AirPlay when the TV has a Netflix app built-in?

Question... why would you need Netflix over AirPlay when it's built into the Apple TV itself?

I couldn't agree more. To try and circumvent turning my mac on, I recently downloaded File Browser onto my iPhone and iPad. Does the trick and works great, but would still be nice to take one less variable out of the equation.

Or, better still, rather than Apple trying to pick the right size hard drive to balance pricing needs and customer wants (which widely vary), how about just normalize the USB port and let those that want local storage hookup however much storage they desire?

You can stream purchased music if you are not an iTunes Match subscriber.

Also can confirm, bluetooth keyboard works with Apple TV (2nd gen).

Amazon is a competitor in where Apple wants to go, durrrrrrrrrrrr.

If you use an TV, you'll find out exactly why it's actually a desirable product.
