    Hi all

    So today I got my new AppleTV.

    Was looking forward to it but am really disappointed at the day 1 functionality (in the UK at least).

    Apps missing - NowTV? heavily promoted on apples website as providing content for the new AppleTV but no app on day 1. My apple TV box is essential for NowTV.

    Also, things like the Trailers app? Wheres that gone. I liked watching trailers on the old AppleTV...

    Any ideas or am I doing something wrong here.

    Thanks for that.

    I guess I'm being a bit too impatient.

    Though to be fair it should be available for launch. Theres a fair bit of quite justifiable annoyance on the NowTV support forum.

    That aside, as I'm sure it will appear soon...

    Where do you watch trailers on the new AppleTV?? Any ideas anyone?

    I love the new Apple TV so far, but I would also have liked a Trailers app.

    The biggest omission, for me, is Podcasts. I really hope Apple add this ASAP.

    had a longish play with the atv4 in the Cribbs store today. not yet compelling for the uk was my conclusion... but I have never been a big user of the Apple movie or tv store.

    UI takes a fair bit of getting used to.

    Game graphics are weak...probably ok on an iphone but look poor at 1080p on a TV.

    I think they will sell well...but uk apps line up is lacking in quality apps... and discoverability is lacking.
