What is AppleTV?
As you probably have guessed, AppleTV is Apple’s answer to streaming entertainment. AppleTV has been around since 2008 making it the oldest streaming TV and microconsole out there. Apple believes that the future of television and streaming entertainment is app based. With apps like Hulu and Netflix as well as iTunes, the AppleTV offers a lot of options for streaming.
And, the newest generation of AppleTV includes Siri so if you’re looking for a show to watch, Siri can help you find it! With Siri, the AppleTV is more hands-free than ever.
