    Hallo: I am a little confused regarding the difference in content between iTunes on my Mac and the content I can see on my Apple TV. There is a wider array of content on my Mac (and OS devices) than there is on the APple TV in terms of movies to rent/buy. I assumed that the content would be exactly the same, but it most certainly isn't... any ideas, anyone????

    Hello!

    I guess the content it the same but the idea of both is different,

    iTunes is ment for a computer or iPod/iPhone etc, it's used to play media, download it and sync your devices.

    Apple TV is designed to hook up to your TV and be used as a Media Centre, as opposed to something like Zune on an Xbox 360 or Sky Movies etc.

    Hope that helps!
