A lot of entertainment. In a very little box.
With Apple TV, everything you want to watch — movies, TV shows, photo slideshows, and more — plays wirelessly on your widescreen TV. No managing storage. No syncing to your iTunes library. HD movies and TV shows from iTunes and Netflix play over the Internet on your HDTV, and music and photos stream from your computer. All you have to do is click and watch.

With iCloud, you can browse and watch your purchased TV shows and listen to your previously purchased music.1 And with Photo Stream, your photos update automatically — no syncing, no sending.

Apple TV features a powerful A4 chip, so it plays everything effortlessly, without frozen screens or stutters. Videos look crisp and clear. And just like watching a DVD, you can fast-forward through opening credits, pause for a popcorn break, or replay a hilarious scene until you memorize every line.

Apple TV is quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand. Which makes it perfect for sitting neatly on a TV stand or squeezing into a crowded media cabinet. And when it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light.



Intuitive interface.
Cruise through the simple Apple TV menus with the sleek, aluminum Apple Remote, included with every Apple TV. Choose from Movies, TV Shows, Music, Podcasts, Photos, Internet, and Settings menus with a click. The Apple TV interface takes full advantage of your widescreen TV, making it clear and easy to find whatever entertainment you’re in the mood for.



Get connected with Apple TV.
Setting up Apple TV is about as simple as it gets. 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. Well, that and a comfy couch.



Give your digital collection some airtime.
Home Sharing on your Apple TV makes sure those songs, movies, TV shows, and photos — even home videos — don’t have to stay on your computer. For maximum entertainment, stream your digital collection over the air to your Apple TV. Just don’t forget to call dibs on the recliner.









From the movie theater to your home theater.
No more waiting in line to check out DVDs or watching stale blockbusters on cable. With Apple TV, you get instant access to the hottest Hollywood titles and new releases — often the same day they come out on DVD. Popular movies are never out of stock, and you can rent as many as you want. That’s perfect for those spontaneous movie nights (or afternoons or mornings). Search by top movies, title, or genre. Even read a quick movie review, watch the trailer, and check out the latest ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. Once you find what you’re looking for, simply press Play, and in seconds, you’re watching the opening credits with theater-like Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.2 SD rentals start at just $2.99, and HD rentals start at $3.99. You have 30 days to start watching, and once you begin, you can watch as many times as you want in 24 hours.

Your content. On all your devices.

iCloud stores your TV shows, your music, your photos, and more and pushes them wirelessly to all your devices. So you can buy your favorite TV show on Apple TV, and also have it available to watch on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. iCloud is the easiest way to get instant access to your content — no matter which device you’re using.



iTunes and iTunes Match.
You can take it with you. (Coming Soon)


If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you can access your entire music collection from iCloud — including songs you’ve imported from CDs or bought somewhere other than iTunes — right from your Apple TV. Play them on Apple TV or any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer for just $24.99 a year. 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 your iCloud library with no uploading needed. Any remaining songs are automatically uploaded from your computer to iCloud.



Photo Stream. (4.4 only)

Say Grandma couldn’t make it to your kid’s first soccer game. You snapped enough pictures, but the thought of uploading all those photos was daunting. Until now. With Photo Stream in iCloud, your last 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 Grandma, and everyone, to enjoy.



AirPlay
What you see is what you show.

Your content. Large and in charge.

Not only can you stream music, photos, and videos to Apple TV from your computer — but thanks to AirPlay, you can also stream it all from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. So if you feel like watching a movie you have on one of your devices, you don’t need to rent or buy it again. You can also stream a home video you just recorded or videos from websites and AirPlay-enabled apps. Simply tap to start playing content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then tap again to instantly stream whatever you’re watching — or listening to — directly to Apple TV.



AirPlay Mirroring. (4.4 only)

And now with AirPlay Mirroring, you can wirelessly and securely stream what’s on your iPad 2 or iPhone to your HDTV. So you can show off just about anything you can do on your iPad or iPhone for the whole room to see. Like that awesome new app and your gaming skills (or lack thereof).



Even more flicks with Netflix.
(Special procedures required for it to work in sg)

From classics to recent Hollywood favorites, Netflix on Apple TV lets you watch even more movies and TV shows6 — in HD and with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound when available. Apple TV organizes Netflix’s huge catalog of streaming titles so you can find what you want with just a few clicks.

When you find something you like, watch it right away or add it to your instant-watch queue. Since Apple TV lets you access your Netflix account directly from your HDTV, you can ditch all the computer-to-TV adapters and skip straight to the part where you press Play.



Season tickets. Now available couchside.

Watch NHL, NBA, and MLB games — live and in HD — right from your living room. Have a subscription? Choose the home or away broadcast. Pause to take a break from the action. Fast-forward to catch up. Or rewind to see that amazing play again and again. And you can replay any regular season game you missed on demand from the archives. Don’t have a subscription? You can still get team schedules and real-time scores, standings, and stats — both in-game and full-season — all free.

All the news. All the time.

Now there’s even more great content on Apple TV. Stay current on late-breaking business, international, and financial news with the Wall Street Journal Live. Hear expert insight on the market and the economy and how they affect your finances and investments. Don’t have a lot of time? Watch summaries of leading and breaking news stories — close to home and across the globe, 24 hours a day.



The Internet’s most wanted. Now on your HDTV.

Play all those funny, fascinating, or weird 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 on your HDTV.

LATEST NEWS AND UPDATES ON APPLE TV 2

AirPlay Mirroring Coming to iPhone 4S



First announced for iPad 2 back in June, AirPlay mirroring is now coming to iPhone 4S. This feature will let you see on your TV (with the Apple TV 2 plugged in) exactly what’s on your new iPhone. Although iOS 4 natively supports AirPlay for photos, videos and music, and there are iPhone apps that let you AirPlay pretty everything – web pages (Web Browser for Apple TV), live view of your iPhone’s camera (Camera for Apple TV), maps, text editor (TVOut Genie!) – one thing still missing are games. Well, it will finally change with the arrival of the iPhone 4S and, as this video shows, we can expect it will work as smooth as we are hoping for.



According to Apple, AirPlay mirroring will be available only for iPhone 4S and iPad 2, the only Apple devices powered by A5 chip, as the other devices are simply not powerful enough to handle the mirroring. Hopefully, we’ll soon be seeing an iOS 5 apps with AirPlay feature built-in, which would let us to AirPlay the app without the necessity of mirroring your iPhone.

Short after the iOS 5 has been unveiled, Firemint announced that its Real Racing 2 HD will be the “first title to support full screen wireless gaming over AirPlay”. According to the developer, this won’t be just mirroring – the players will be able to play Real Racing 2 HD on their big screens without a cable, while their iPad 2 displays racing telemetry in real-time.

And if you don’t have the second generation Apple TV, you can also plug in the HDMI cable and mirror your device over the wire as well.

Photo Stream and AirPlay Mirroring for iPad 2 Coming to Apple TV 2

Among the tons of the new features that will come to our iDevices this fall along with iCloud and iOS 5, there are two Apple TV2-related features. The first one is Photo Stream – a special Photo Stream album on your Apple TV 2 will let you access your photos stored in iCloud. iCloud’s Photo Stream service automatically uploads the photos you take or import on any of your devices and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices and computers.



The other feature is AirPlay mirroring that lets wirelessly display everything you do on your iPad 2 right on your HDTV through Apple TV 2. According to Apple’s iOS 5 promo video, this will let you airplay not only photos, videos and websites (it’s already available on Apple TV 2) but also video games. To allow atv2 to make use of the AirPlay mirroring, the new Apple TV 4.4 software will be released. The beta version of this new firmware has been released to the developers yesterday.

Real Racing 2 HD First to Support Wireless Gaming over AirPlay on Apple TV 2



Firemint has just announced that its Real Racing 2 HD will be the “first title to support full screen wireless gaming over AirPlay”. According to the developer, this won’t be just mirroring – the players will be able to play Real Racing 2 HD on their big screens without a cable, while their iPad 2 displays racing telemetry in real-time. “No black borders, no wires – just iOS racing at its finest,” the company promises. The new release of Real Racing will take advantage of Firemint’s dual-screen technology, allowing a console-style gaming experience similar to Nintendo’s Wii U.

“Relish Real Racing 2 HD’s superb visuals as they’re streamed effortlessly to your big screen TV. Grip your iPad 2 and steer with unerring precision and the freedom of wireless play. Stay closer than ever to the track with real-time racing telemetry, displayed directly on your iPad’s screen,” the developer said in the press release.

The current version of the game features full HD 1080p TV-out and dual screen gaming support on iPad 2, allowing you to play Real racing 2 HD on your HDTV at full 1080p using HDMI adapter.

AirPlay mirroring for iPad 2 is one of the new features of recently announced iOS 5. It lets you wirelessly display everything you do on your iPad 2 right on your HDTV through Apple TV 2. It will let you airplay not only photos, videos and websites (it’s already available on Apple TV 2) but also video games.

The Apple TV Manual is now available online from the Apple site. It can give those unfortunate enough not to have an Apple TV of their own a glimpse of what they are missing.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions (Last Update : 12th Feb 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.

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 2?
A) 4.4.4 (Currently the latest firmware as of 12th Feb 2012)

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

Q) If I didn't buy my ATV2 from your Mass Order, can you still Jailbreak for me?
A) Yes, but there will be a charge.

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 Apple TV 2 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.

On the official firmware, u can only play iTunes supported format (i.e. mp4,etc)

However if you jailbreak and install xmbc on the Apple TV 2, you will be able to play rmvb format movie files.
