    So, with the relatively recent flood of new apps (HBO GO, WatchESPN, etc.) to the Apple TV, I thought it would be neat to have a thread where people say what apps they want in the future. Feel free to be creative.

    I'll start it off simple:

    1. Vevo (this makes total sense and would be freakin' awesome)
    2. Spotify (...although iOS version w/ AirPlay may actually be the best way)
    3. Amazon Instant Video
    4. TED Talks (yes, I know there's a podcast)
    5. Major TV Networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) with live broadcast and catch-up (I know Hulu sort of does the catch-up part, but no CBS)


    6. The Daily Show (since the full episodes are online already in HD.. why are the iTunes versions SD, anyway? - really stupid)

    wish list


    Basically any porn site would be awesome on Apple TV. I currently have to rip and convert all my porn videos and add them to a very hidden/buried playlist so my Sunday school teacher wife doesn't find them.

    I wish A La Carte channel apps. Throw away cable converter and save money for cable bill.

    ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and PBS local channels
    Local sports channels
    Family channels

    It would be good if it could stream local digital free to air.

    Not sure if serious, but a JB Apple TV can do all
    Of that. Haha

    Games, FPS with a BT controller. I want to be able to play all those FPS games on the ipad on my apple tv but want a BT controller to use instead of the ipad screen.

    I am pretty much set to not purchase another xbox or PS since the price is too high for me for something I won't get to play often in the first place.


    Why don't you just stream them on your phone or ipad and airplay them to the ATVs screen? Nothing to hide from the wife other than maybe a favorites list and that is pretty much it. Use a browser she doesn't use like Skyfire or something. Problem solved.
