Apart from “Chapter 1: Introducing Apple TV,” these chapters are available only to TidBITS members; see “‘Take Control of Apple TV’ Streaming in TidBITS” for details.


Discover What’s on Offer

As of this writing, the Apple TV has over thirty built-in content options. This chapter summarizes each, including details on what they cost and how to access them.

Apple often adds and removes content options, so this list is subject to change. Some apps, such as iTunes Festival and Apple Events, are seasonal.

Your Apple TV isn’t limited to built-in apps. AirPlay offers a limitless selection of content. For more information, see the next chapter.
