Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Setup, Nice addition If you have apple products iphone, ipad ,mac then this is an excellent addition to allow them to stream content direct to a tv. Very useful to mirror ipad and then stream iplayer or any other tv catchup without the need of smart tv. Can play music or video straight from your mac itunes. The inbuilt channels are a bit US specific and some are pay to view, but the others are useful. With the price drop by apple, its more cost affective than buying as hdmi cable to plug your ipad into a tv. Very easy setup, very portable if want to move to other rooms and as with apple no issues. 24 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Easy to use. Opens up so much more to all the family. Excellent value. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another reliable Apple product Does what it is claims to do. Straightforward set up and easy to use/ intuitive. The price at John Lewis was favourable and the extended guaranteed is always a bonus. The ability to play from an iPad to TV screen is very useful and Apple TV does this smoothly, producing good quality images. 14 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Apple TV Easy to install and operate. It uses WiFi to connect your Apple devices( iPhone, iPad etc) to your TV. The Apple TV provides the functions of a 'Smart TV' and also enables certain APPS to display onto the TV screen. Great for streaming films, but do not expect to browse the internet using the TV screen to display the content. 25 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by APPLE TV Got this for my 80th birthday - using John Lewis Broadband supplied Netgear Modem Router DGN2200 found problems connecting with Sony Bravia TV set. Broadband Customer Services failed to provide positive feedback to resolve problem - managed to do so through Netgear support. Next problem still unresolved was failure to link existing network i-pad / laptop (windows) to that APPLE TV to play existing music, photographs video through the Sony Bravia! Feel helpless and embarassed with failure to use a generous gift which should have been a helpful entertainment tool. 14 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by not quite Purchased Apple TV to use with my MacAir as a method of connecting the computer to widescreen TV, due to the lack of video sockets. All connected up and working within 5 minutes of opening the box. BUT beware - I had hoped that when I was away from my Sky box, I could stream Sky Go through the device from my laptop to a larger TV screen- Sky Go is not supported and the connection crashes and soon as the video link is made with Sky. So rather an expensive VGA adapter!!! I will keep it because I do share family photos. Apple ned to manufacture a simpler version!!!! 01 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Arrived before time. Well packaged. So easy to set up. Can stream from my iPhone and iPad - very pleased. 17 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost Perfect Overall great device, does what it says on the box. However, occasionally loses connection with iTunes and sometimes downloads for up to an hour. 03 February 2015
