Hi all,

I'm struggling to find a review or any pre-release info that confirms this. Can anyone confirm whether the new Apple TV has full iCloud Photo Library support e.g. view all content, rather than only the Photo Stream option that exists on the previous gen.
Thanks!

Thanks bobbba, although I did note the Photos footage at the 6 minute mark does show Photo Stream at the top and so I'm not 100% sure the full functionality will be available at launch. I guess we'll find out from tomorrow!

I feel like I heard someone during a review saying it has access only to shared photo streams, and not full iCloud Photo Library. I'm guessing it may be because a TV is usually a communal screen, and photo libraries tend to be more private?
