I am a novice at technology and would like to be able to easily watch movies and tv on my tv from my apple devices, as well as multiple formats on my apple devices. I have a friend who lends me movies/shows on a flash drive/external HD and I would like to be able to watch them on the tv wirelessly as well as on my iPad mini (when it gets here). I also use Hulu and Netflix. (Currently I only know how to watch on my MacBook Pro and use a cord to mirror image onto tv) What is the most simple way to watch multiple formats on tv wirelessly and on iPad? Do I need to buy Apple TV? Smart device? Roku? Other? Will I need to convert the video files? How do I do this? Easiest method? Please help .
