I am considering an Apple TV to stream music from my iTunes account thru my multi room music system. Does any have any comment on how well it might work?
1 answer
Multi room system. How is that set up? With mine, I have Apple TV connected to reciever and my reciever connected to my hifi speakers. I don’t have tv connected. I use ipad or iPod touch to airplay music to Apple TV from iTunes. It works well. If you have Apple TV connected to a reciever to multi speakers. It would work well.

About to purchase a generation 4 and want to know if I can get sbs ondemand and abc iview from the apple app store? Would the 32GB be OK for basic use (no games etc)?
1 answer
ABC iview and sbs on demand are available through the App Store. They may already appear when you click on the app tab as they do on my Apple tv. I did not download them specifically. I use mine for basic use. I have no photos, music, movies etc saved on my Apple TV and it's fine for me. I use the home sharing function from my computer to the Apple TV for music on my tv so I don't use any storage space on my Apple TV.

Sorry someone else will have to help you, Apple do not take responsibility for their product so if you buy it and it is not compatible tough titties. We are understandably disgusted with Apple and will never endorse any of their products ever again. I suggest you buy a different product for less but that is just me.If all you are doing is air play the 3rd generation Apple TV is all you need . I'm an apple fan and be leave the 4th generation Apple TV is great value . Air play works just as well on both items I am connected to Telstra for my internet so don't get any problems with my Apple TV I hope this helps youApple TV 3 is perfect for this so don't waste your money on the 4

It can vary, "movie of the week is $0.99, you can find this easily on the movie for rent page. Others can be from $3.99 , $5.99 and $6.99, the higher the price the more recent the film is.

Can I use Apple TV on my 12 month old iPad mini?
2 answers
No, it must be connected to a TV WITH HDMI cableThe Apple TV myst ne connected to your tv. If it is the case, most apple product (iPod, IPad, iPad mini) running iOS 6 and up will run your Apple TV. My advice is don't waist your money on it unless you have a large collection of movie from iTunes. Google cast is half the price and will do more that the Apple TV .
