Apple TV Review and Giveaway

Tim Brookes 11-08-2014

Apple introduced its set-top digital media player in 2007, and it’s currently on its third generation of hardware. Not a lot seem to have changed since the svelte streaming box was first introduced – so can we really recommend purchasing it in 2014?


The Apple TV costs $99 and goes head to head with the likes of similarly priced products like the Roku 3 Roku 3 Review and Giveaway As more content becomes available online, the need for a traditional television subscription may not be enough anymore to justify the costs. If you’re already subscribed to services like Netflix or Hulu Plus, now may...

Wireless streaming, movies for rent and deep integration with the Apple ecosystem – what’s not to like about the Apple TV? We’ll tell you in this review, and then we’ll give it away to one lucky reader.

Introducing the Apple TV

This is the first revision of the third generation of Apple TV hardware running iOS 7.1.2, but not as you know it. It’s a hundred dollar media streamer that provides online access to Apple’s iTunes catalogue of movies, TV shows and music for rent and purchase, as well as plenty of free streaming content from the likes of YouTube, Vimeo and others.

There’s also an emphasis on streaming local media using iTunes’ HomeSharing function, as well as iCloud integration for the sharing of photos on the big screen. Another reason many are drawn to the Apple TV is for its AirPlay capabilities, which allow users to stream video and audio content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac OS X devices. Being an Apple device, you’ll need to sign up for an Apple ID in order to make purchases and even share your local media.

Despite not being a games console per sé, it’s worth noting that many developers build AirPlay functionality into their games and apps to enable dual-screen play or to facilitate pass and play multiplayer modes, as Team 17 did with Worms 3 Worms 3: Finally, A Proper Worms Game For iPhone & iPad Team 17 originally released Worms for the Amiga in 1995, and it didn't take long before the world took note and the game was ported to the PC, PlayStation and even the GameBoy. Now, nearly...

Here are several other awesome AirPlay receivers that are much cheaper. Read More .

Initial Impressions and Setup

As is often the case with Apple products, the Apple TV is presented in striking cardboard cube-shaped packaging – the inside of which slides out to reveal a matte-black streaming unit, metallic silver remote control, black anti-tangle power cable and a quick-start guide. Apple has chosen to not include an HDMI cable, which – despite seeming a bit stingy at first – didn’t bother me once I realised how many HDMI cables I’ve started to amass.

apple tv review


The Apple TV unit itself is small, sitting just 23mm high and 98mm square. Apple’s logo sits adorning a matte black surface that’s fairly susceptible to finger grease. This is accented by the glossy edges that surround the unit, culminating in HDMI, Ethernet, power and optical audio ports to the rear. During operation, a single white LED appears on the front of the unit, a throwback to the days when every Mac shipped with a slowly blinking sleep indicator.

Setup is a cinch, and really speaks for the Apple way of doing things. Plug it in, choose your language then setup Wi-Fi access (or use Ethernet, your choice). Once you’ve done this, you can begin using the Apple TV to watch trailers and stream YouTube videos. In order to make full use of the services available, you’ll need to connect your Apple ID, log in to iCloud and HomeSharing and then set up any third-party accounts (like YouTube or Flickr) you wish to use.

The Apple of My Living Room

Movies, TV shows and other media is provided courtesy of iTunes, which means there’s a good range of media on offer at any given time. There’s even support for Netflix and Hulu Plus, provided you live in the right area (or you’re willing to circumvent the region-lock using DNS trickery 2 Effective Ways to Access Region-Blocked Videos Without a VPN Internet users outside of the United States are blocked from accessing the wealth of streaming video and music content available to Americans.

Further content is provided by the likes of YouTube, Vimeo and other niche services like Crunchyroll for anime or the MLB app for baseball highlights, and everything that is available is enabled by default. There’s nowhere to download further “apps” to add more content, and overall I was a bit disappointed with the amount of free content available.

apple tv in depth review

Similarly, local content can only be shared using the iTunes HomeSharing feature, which requires you log in using your Apple ID (and have all media in iTunes-friendly formats, in your library). The feature works seamlessly, but I don’t use iTunes so I found myself lamenting the fact that Apple hadn’t provided a way to browse simple DLNA/UPnP media streams like those provided by PS3 Media Server Stream & Transcode Media To Any Device With PS3 Media Server If you've setup and tested one media server, it probably feels like you've tried them all.

apple tv in depth review


Like most new iOS devices, the Apple TV is fast and reliable – and that’s what counts. Compared to wrestling with the interfaces many manufacturers consider adequate for so-called smart TVs, it’s a breath of fresh air. The UI is responsive to any input you provide, and takes a very simple approach to serving up online and networked media.

This version of iOS is like nothing you’ll find on an iPad or iPhone. It’s a customised front-end designed to be used with the Apple TV remote that still abides to Apple’s former skeuomorphic design sensibilities and, coming from iOS 7, feels rather old-hat from the get go. Unfortunately responsiveness isn’t everything either, as the UI suffers from some unfortunate problems.

apple tv 2014 review

These include a lack of pagination for the “latest releases” on the homescreen, which means you have to flick through movies one by one (something even the Xbox 360 gets right), the ability to only view two lines of any given movie review and the “everything enabled by default” nature of the included services. There was a lot of what I would technically refer to as “crap” enabled by default (commercial offerings like Red Bull TV) though fortunately it’s possible to disable much of this under the settings.

apple tv 2014 review

The decision to omit a Spotlight-like search-everything-engine on the home screen seems like an oversight, too.

Living With The Apple TV

Different people will buy the Apple TV for different reasons, and it’s probably a good idea to cross-reference your requirements with what Apple is actually offering before purchasing. You might find that your money is better spent elsewhere.

apple tv 2014 review

It must be said that buying an Apple TV feels a bit like spending money in order to spend more money. If you don’t own any movies or TV on iTunes, you won’t be able to stream without buying or renting. You’ll need some sort of subscription if you’re going to use it for streaming Netflix or Hulu Plus so if you don’t want to buy or rent movies, you might want to consider something other than the Apple TV.

AirPlay performance is very strong. It’s possible to manipulate videos playing on other devices using the Apple TV’s remote, and the service is always running even if your Apple TV happens to be asleep. To wake it up, simply choose it as an AirPlay location and wait a few seconds. Wireless playback starts in literally two taps, provided you’re tuned to the right HDMI input on your TV.

apple tv 2014 review

Occasionally I had some issues where the receiver wouldn’t show up, though restarting the iPad (not the Apple TV) seemed to solve this. Streaming to the Apple TV from my iPhone or iPad doesn’t sap very much battery, with an hour of streaming barely using 5% of my available juice. I increasingly found myself turning to my iPhone to find video content, which I’d instinctively AirPlay to my TV and control with the Apple TV remote.

The remote itself feels solid – it’s small, tough and quite easy to lose down the side of the sofa thanks to its thin design. The directional pad has a “select” button in the middle, and I found this a little too easy to hit this accidentally. Just like your old iPod, the Menu functions as “back” button and the device is put into sleep mode by pressing and holding the play button on the home screen.

There’s also the option of using your iPhone as a remote The 7 Best Free Remote Control Apps for the iPhone Read More , which provides you with improved text input and a touchpad for manipulating the UI.

Should You Buy The Apple TV?

The Apple TV slips right into an existing Apple setup like a glove, with features like AirPlay, iTunes integration and HomeSharing to make it an enticing bit of set-top kit. It’s nice how your photos appear on your TV automatically if you have an iPhone. However, if your media lives outside of your iTunes library and you’re not really that crazy about spending more money to stream content, it’s probably a bad choice.

From a software standpoint, the Apple TV feels outdated, like a version of iOS stuck in time. Local media is restricted to delivery via iTunes and there’s no way of expanding the number of services included – but it’s probably a lot nicer to use than your smart TV. But what about a jailbreak? Well apparently that’s never going to happen, so you can kiss goodbye to any XBMC dreams you had.

MakeUseOf recommends: Buy it if you’re already immersed in the Apple ecosystem but consider waiting, it’s likely Apple will be refreshing the line at some point in the near future.

    Another great apple product that i'd surely like to try!

    I have an Apple TV (2), and it is just one of the small boxes I use to throw content to our big TV. It certainly makes throwing iPad screens and content very easy.

  97. Tonya Tipton
    August 14, 2014 at 4:29 am

    I don't use the Apple TV and the reason I don't is because I didn't know anything about the Apple TV but from your review of this unit it's something I would love to try out.

  98. Eddie G
    August 14, 2014 at 2:50 am

    I don't use it, as I don't really need it. My TV has a great deal of features built in, including netflix and other subscription services.

  99. Eddie G
    August 14, 2014 at 2:43 am

    I don't use it. This is mostly due to not wishing to own and Apple products.

  100. Carolyn Berg

    I would love to try it.

    I don't have Apple TV, but I do like the idea of it... It beats hooking my laptop up to the TV when I want to watch something from iTunes.

  104. Karla Sceviour
    August 13, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    I don`t have an apple tv,,but I want one badly,so I can watch Netflix on my tv,,what a nice giveaway,thanks so much!

    August 13, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    I dont use it. at the time price and versatility of the platform were the major issues.

  106. Cami
    August 13, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    I do have an Apple TV and I really like it. I use to airplay and watch Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, etc. The drawback with streaming movies from my library is that I have to use iTunes and have it open the entire time. I would love to have another Apple TV for basement TV so I can add it to my network.

  107. Stoja Todoric
    August 13, 2014 at 2:25 pm

  113. Kendall B

    I used to own and loved it but the airplay stopped working on my campus wifi.

  114. bright humani
    August 13, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    I do not use an apple TV, primarily because it is not properly and effectively marketed and priced in Zimbabwe for Zimbabwean customers

  115. DAN J
    August 13, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    I'm getting my first iPad today.
    So, I think that cool to have Apple TV to play with too.

  116. Dave
    August 13, 2014 at 9:24 am

    I have an ATV and two Roku3. The need to have iTunes for the ATV is a major drawback. I use Plex on the Roku and it works very well. The "skin" on the ATV is nicer than Roku and Airplay is a big plus. I think however these are out-weighed by the flexibility of not being forced to use iTunes and the greater variety available on Roku. I would give a narrow win to Roku.

  117. Anne F
    August 13, 2014 at 5:25 am

    no, but would love to try it!

  122. Andreia

    I don't use it because I don't have it neither have the money for it :(

  123. Rico Robbins
    August 13, 2014 at 1:59 am

    I would like something to enable my non-smart HDTV to have smart features, plus have the ability to use airplay for my iPad. I believe the Apple TV will do that for me the best!

  124. Míss R
    August 13, 2014 at 1:53 am

    I haven't used it as I don't own one, but I know a few people that do love theirs. Thanks for the opportunity to win one. Good luck everyone.

  125. Bruno
    August 13, 2014 at 1:31 am

    I don't use it because I don't have the means to buy it neither the money but I wish I could have it :)

  126. Wendl

    I don't use it now as I don't own one, but I will if you give one to me.

  131. Mickey G

    I don't own an AppleTV but I would like one for the AirPlay features. Not worth buying one though...

  132. Muhammad Hadi

    Never have it. It seems useless because of Malaysia internet it so slow. And I just want to have it.

  133. David Smith

  136. Ryan

    I don't due to cost.

  137. Jo-anne P
    August 12, 2014 at 8:55 pm

    No apple tv here the reason is I don't run anything other than android and I am not smart enough (yet) to figure it out. I am so dang proud I finally have all my devices synced and can access my google bookmarks on any device that I am enjoying this victory for a while. Many times I was sure I was developing a brain tumor trying to figure it out. So before I venture into the ios apple world I think I should concentrate on figuring out all these backup programs I won and all the space I have on the "cloud", Asus backup and Acronis True Image lol not to mention dropbox lol

  138. Bill
    August 12, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    no do not have one but would like to.

  139. arthur nelson

  180. Grant R
    August 12, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    I'm more a fan of the Amazon Fire TV. The all-inclusive search (including voice search), coupled with the ability to expand its capabilities with any app I want make it a sweet choice. Also, it can easily be hacked to allow streaming of your own content.

    Haven't used Apple TV yet but everything that I have heard has been very positive, not to mention friends raving about how they find movies on their iphone, use apple TV to stream it and then watch it on their big screen TV. Would love to give that a try if I won.

  189. Andrew
    August 12, 2014 at 11:38 am

    I don't use an Apple TV because I my connection probably isn't good enough for extensive use of streaming video, so I haven't bought one.

  217. Rikker
    August 12, 2014 at 5:04 am

    I tried out a friend iTV and found it easy to use but I don't watch really anything it had to offer. I would be just be "finding" something to watch rather than using it to watch what I wanted.

    i heard about it, but never used it before; because my internet is a bit slow, and it's not my priority, i think that's why :)

    No, I don't own Apple TV. Up to now, I had no use for it but I am watching more TV than before and since I have new hearing aids, I don't have to blast everyone out of the house either. Sounds like a pretty good product. Thanks for the review.

    I don't use any Apple products. I used to but they started to build over-priced, under-performing hardware that you had to buy in order to get their OS. If you could have gotten their wonderful, sleek OS on reasonable HW 18 years ago when I needed to decide which path I was taking, I would be a Mac addict.

    It looks like Apple phones and, yes, the Apple TV are continuations of that.

    I've an Apple TV and it's great to have the ability to use the USA contents using Trickbyte especially Netflix, coz I'm not living in USA. Streaming from iPad to my TV is very easy & listening to worldwide radio streaming is the best routine every day. Would recommend to everyone.

  276. Anthony
    August 11, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    I have an original apple TV (with internal HDD) and it has served me well, but since they moved to running IOS (rather than whatever mine runs) it feels like it has been left behind.

    Generally, apple gear makes most sense if you are willing to get apple gear for everything - in which case it works well, it seems more robust than other equivalent products.

  277. Dave N

    I have used but don't own an Apple TV. I always just used my PC, ipad, or iphone so I don't know really why I would spend the extra money for another apple device with limited functions.

  280. Alan T

  281. Va D
    August 11, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    No, I just never got into the whole Apple TV hype. Now streaming on the computer is so much easier I don't know if I would ever need to use it.

  282. Dennis Dubs
    August 11, 2014 at 6:16 pm

    I haven't used Apple TV yet, but I've been looking into cutting out cable TV and going digital for some time. I looked at ROKU, Chromecast and AppleTV but I am still not sure which, I need to see them up and running to choose.

  283. Jeanne T

    I actually own two (2), yes two Apple TV. First and Second generation. I guess you see I love it. Allows me to view all my favorite movies and TV shows from Hulu and Netflixk. Of course, from Apple Store as well.

  288. B. Lerner

  291. Pamela
    August 11, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    I don't use apple tv, as I don't own one, but would love to! I subscribe to netflix, and it'd be wonderful to be able to stream the films/shows on my television. I probably wouldn't bother with it if I didn't use a streaming service, as then I'd have to rent or buy anything new. Thanks for the giveaway!

  292. Shemp D
    August 11, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    I bought one once, but when I hooked it up to my home theater I found that it was not compatible. I had a slightly older HDTV that I was still using 'cause it was working fine and fit in with the rest of my stuff. Turns out that even though my system is HDMI compatible, the monitor itself is not and the Apple TV would only work if all elements are 1080i. Now it's time to try it again with the new TV.

  293. Mikkel
    August 11, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    The Optical Audio output still does not work, which is a real bummer because you have to listen to the TV audio and not our surround sound audio!

    We like the Apple TV! Most members of my extended family are well embedded in the Apple ecosystem. At family gatherings we throw on the big TV screen family photos, videos, etc. I find it convenient to start a Netflix movie on my iPhone while walking on my treadmill, and then switch it to the TV when I go into the family room. Its simplicity of operation is an important feature for me - an old guy of 78! The Apple TV is a useful toy at a reasonable price.
