Small. Powerful. Efficient.
Quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand, Apple TV sits neatly on a TV stand or in a crowded media cabinet. When it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light. And the included Apple Remote makes it easy to get to your favorite entertainment.

Easy setup.
Setting up Apple TV takes almost no time at all. Just plug the power cord into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV using your Wi-Fi network, that’s all you need. Except for the popcorn.

Give your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch some airtime.
With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your widescreen TV via Apple TV. So if you want to watch a movie stored on one of your devices, you don’t need to buy or rent it again to watch it on the best screen in the house. You can also stream home movies, photos, or videos from websites and AirPlay-enabled apps. And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can display the screen of your iPad or iPhone 4S on your HDTV. So when you tap, swipe, pinch, or play something, it shows up on the big screen — ideal for sharing entertainment with friends or showing off your gaming skills (or lack thereof).

Store it in iCloud. Watch it on Apple TV.
With iCloud, you can buy movies and TV shows on Apple TV and watch them on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. And vice versa. iCloud also stores your photos and pushes them wirelessly to all your devices — including your HDTV via Apple TV. It’s the easiest way to get instant access to your content, no matter which device you’re using.

iTunes Match.
If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you can access your entire music collection from iCloud — including songs you’ve imported from CDs — right from your Apple TV. Play your whole collection on Apple TV or any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer. iTunes Match has an amazing scan-and-match feature: All the songs in your iTunes library are scanned and then matched with those available on the iTunes Store. Matched songs are instantly added to iCloud with no uploading needed. Any remaining songs are automatically uploaded from your computer to iCloud.

Photo Stream.
Uploading all the photos from a summer vacation or a big event is as easy as doing nothing at all. With Photo Stream in iCloud, your most recent 1000 photos automatically appear on all your devices — including Apple TV — no matter which device you used to take the picture. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there on your HDTV. For you, and everyone, to enjoy.

HD movies.
Always the best seat in the house.

With Apple TV, you get instant access to buy or rent the hottest HD movies — many in 1080p and often available the same day they come out on DVD. That’s perfect for spontaneous movie nights (or afternoons or mornings). Search by top movies, title, or genre. Can’t decide? Read reviews, watch trailers, and check out Rotten Tomatoes ratings. Or let Genius make a recommendation based on movies you’ve watched before. Then pick a flick, press Play, and in seconds you’re watching the opening credits in theater-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround.



HD TV shows.
Make any time prime time.

Buy your favorite TV shows and watch them — without commercials — whenever you like. Watch a show the day after it airs, or camp out on your couch and catch up on past seasons with a marathon of back-to-back-to-back episodes. Apple TV keeps track of your favorite shows, so the next time you turn on your TV, you can quickly see which season you’re watching and which episodes are new. Just choose shows with a few clicks of the Apple Remote.

Play your content from your Mac or PC on the big screen.
Get everyone in on the birthday pics, vacation videos, or party mixes. Click Computers on the Apple TV menu to stream your photos, home videos, and music collection from your Mac or PC. And Apple TV lets you wirelessly access your content from iCloud, too. Click Photo Stream to see your iCloud Photo Stream on your widescreen TV. If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, click Music to play your favorite tracks. Sharing your memories and music with your friends and family has never been easier.



All the clips and pics you love.
Play all those funny or fascinating videos you come across on YouTube and Vimeo. Browse your friends’ Flickr photos. Watch HD podcasts. And listen to Internet radio through your home speakers. Apple TV makes anything you find on the web hugely entertaining.

Watch from spring training to postseason.
Have an MLB.TV subscription? Watch games live and in HD on your TV. Or replay any regular season game on demand from the archives. Don’t have a subscription? You can still get team schedules, real-time scores, stats, and standings — free.

Slam-dunk coverage of your favorite team.
Access your NBA.com subscription and see every dunk, free throw, and rebound live from your couch, or replay regular season games on demand. Nonsubscribers can access real-time scores, full-season stats, standings, and video highlights.

See every check and power play.
Subscribe to NHL GameCenter™ and watch live games in HD.8 Follow your favorite NHL teams and see their schedules, games, and stats. And don’t worry if you miss a game — you can replay it anytime you want.

Breaking business and financial news.
Stay current on late-breaking business, international, and financial news with Wall Street Journal Live. Hear expert insight on the market and the economy and how it affects your finances and investments. Don’t have a lot of time? Watch summaries of leading and breaking news stories — 24 hours a day.

Play content from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on your HDTV.
AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream what’s on your iOS device to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. Or mirror exactly what’s on your mobile display to the big screen. Vacation photos, blockbusters, the latest games — AirPlay and Apple TV put it all on your TV.



Show off your photos, videos, and more on your HDTV.
You have friends over and you want to share great photos or the perfect party mix that’s on your iPhone. Or you’re in the middle of an epic action movie on your iPad that could use a little more screen. That’s where AirPlay comes in. Just connect your device and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network, and the AirPlay icon automatically appears. Then tap the AirPlay icon in a specific app — Photos, Videos, Music, Safari, or any AirPlay-enabled app — and everything streams to your HDTV via your Apple TV. It’s a simple way to play your stuff on the biggest screen and the best sound system in the house.



Turn what’s on your iPhone or iPad into a widescreen experience.
AirPlay Mirroring lets you show exactly what’s on your iPhone 4S or iPad screen to everyone in the room.2 Show web pages, games, photos, videos, spreadsheets, class material, and more on your HDTV via Apple TV. Zoom in and out and pause for applause. Rotate from portrait to landscape and your audience sees that, too. AirPlay does it all wirelessly, so you can work the room or sit comfortably among the crowd. If you see it, so can they.



Turn your iPhone or iPad into the ultimate controller.
Take control on your iPhone 4S or iPad while the action unfolds on your widescreen TV.2 Patrol the air while commanding the cockpit from your couch. Browse the latest in interior design ideas and save your favorites on your iPhone 4S or iPad. With AirPlay, your TV displays talents it never knew it had.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions (Last Update : 18th Mar 2012)

Q) Can I use the plug directly into the power socket? Do I need a transformer?
A) Yes you can. However it comes with a 2 pin plug, so you just need a 3 pin adapter to plug into the power socket. You DO NOT need any transformer as it has a built-in universal power supply.
3 Pin Adapter

Q) Do I need to get anything on my side, in order to use the Apple TV?
A) Yes, you'll need a HDMI cable. If you'll like to connect the Apple TV set to your amplifier, you'll need to get a digital audio cable as well.

Q) I can't find the user manual in the box!
A) There isn't one. However you can download them here.

Q) I do not see the Movies/TV shows rental section on the main menu, where is it?
A) Make sure you log-in the Apple TV iTunes Store with your US iTunes account (not SG iTunes account). See here to learn how to create an (US) iTunes App Store account without a US credit card.

Q) How do I rent Movies/TV shows if my US iTunes account is not linked to any credit card?
A) You'll need to top up you U.S. iTunes account using iTunes Gift Cards. See my U.S iTunes Gift Cards Offer here

Q) Is jailbreaking legal?
A) Yes! A recent ruling from the US Copyright office has officially declared jailbreaking will no longer violate federal copyright law. (See Article)

Q) Does Jailbreak allows me to view all the iTunes Movies/TV shows for free?
A) No.

Q) Will all my normal AppleTV features still work after Jailbreak?
A) Yes, all normal AppleTV features (iTunes media playback, rentals, photos, Netflx, etc...) will remain intact and unchanged.

Q) So what good is Jailbreak then?
A) It'll allow you to be able to install 3rd party applications, such as a web brower and universal media player (XBMC, Plex, etc) which will allow you to stream all video formats, etc.

Q) What iOS is the Jailbroken Apple Tv (3rd Gen)?
A) Unfortunately jailbreak for ATV (3rd Gen) is not available yet.

Q) Will I lose the Jailbreak if I update to a future iOS version?
A) Yes

Q) If I didn't buy my Apple TV from you, can you still Jailbreak for me?
A) Yes, but there will be a charge. PM for details and to fix appointment.

Q) Is the 1 year manufacturer's warranty valid in Singapore?
A) Yes. However, similar like the iPad, the service centre will only have parts to service it after it's been officially launch in Singapore. So if you have a defective set that is within the warranty period, and the Apple TV is still not launched here yet, just bring it back to me, and I'll get it serviced in the States on your behalf. Remember to keep the official receipt.

Q) I have other questions!
A) Just drop me a PM and I'll get back to ASAP.
