In recent years there has been a tremendous boost in the number of people using the internet to stream and/or download media such as TV shows and movies. We’re likely all familiar with movie streaming services such as NetFlix and YouTube.
You might not be aware that the Apple TV does much more. Using AIRPLAY you can stream wirelessly virtually any content that is on your handheld Apple device or any recent Apple computer, to your television. This includes photos, music, home movies and web sites; without the hassle of adapters and wires to connect your device.
Little-known amazing facts to get more out of your Apple TV remote:
Jump Back: Press and hold the MENU button on the remote to instantly jump back to the main screen.
Mark episodes or movies as watched: Highlight the show (from your iTunes library) you want to mark as watched or unwatched then press and hold the Select button until the status changes.
Reorder the apps on the main menu: Highlight the app you’d like to move and hold down the Select button until you see the channel wiggle. Use the Left and Right buttons to move it where you’d like. Press the Select button to lock it into place.
