Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good, but the new version is so much better This is a great simple box to get online TV services such as Netflix. However, the selection of apps is very limited and you cannot add your own choice from an iOS style app store. If you want to stream from an iOS or Mac OS X device then this will do everything you want. However, if you want a selection of apps from an app store then get the updated version. It has a far better remote, selection of apps and you can play games! 20 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by App-solutley fabulous Easy to install, easy to use, very good price especially for an apple product. Really no need for sky movies anymore. A brilliant way for the more senior members of a family to view photos and watch videos of grandchildren etc Highly recommend this product 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great product Fantastic product and great service from John Lewis. The extended warranty is a massive advantage 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy I now have two and love them. They work really well as long as your internet is good or if you plug in an internet cable. 10 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by It doesn't work Might be useful to prop the door open with. It doesn't work. I've read all the Apple support pages and still no joy. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Very happy. Quick delivery. Very easy set up. Does what it says on the tin! 03 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Limited usefulness Usual quality of manufacture from Apple, however the only real use this thing is to me is to mirror my Ipad, Macbook onto my TV. Virtually every entertainment app on it you have to pay for via Apple's app store, mostly rather poor quality and expensive american content. There is no Freeview/ BBC Iplayer/ or UK streaming content on it at all and you cannot add content to it. The Remote is extremely basic and clunky in use. So in all very good at streaming your videos/pictures/music from your Ipad/Iphone/Mac and mirroring the screens from same to your TV via HDMIbut thats it. Does NOT work with anything else only apple OS's 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by apple tv Easy to use. Does what it says. Installation was easy too. 27 October 2015
