    i don't know if this has been implemented already, but what if we could scroll back and forth on an episode on netflix with our watch using the digital crown?

    It'd be cool. Difficult to pull off, as it seems the AppleTV already lags a lot if the content isn't fully loaded (at least, this is the case for my previous-gen model). Clicking forward and back on the remote (after clicking up or down for smooth ff/rwd or skip by segments) helps account for the lag.

    I'd be happy with using the crown to scroll up and down lists. I've tried it purely out of habit many times.

    I personally have written to Tim Cook numerous times about the possibility of getting the Apple TV to airplay back to the apple watch' screen netflix and amazon.

    You mean to play video on the watch itself? Sucking up battery power to stream video onto a screen the size of a postage stamp? And mount it on the wrist, which gets uncomfortable to hold to your face after thirty seconds?

    I hope he feels it's a terrible idea.
