AppleTV - 11/30/13 10:41 PM


Wish someone had told me a long time ago how really neat AppleTV is. I installed the critter myself [now you know that it has to be simple and easy if Ethel can do it] and experimented with several things. Ended up on PBS and watched a two hour special on Carol Burnett receiving the Mark Twain award. Laughed my sides off.

Have to watch the local Wildcat football game before I can investigate some more. Fourth quarter and we are ahead 24 Tigers 21.

Use your iPhone and view the photos on your iPhone on your tv now. And the videos too.

I love my AppleTV. There are a lot of shows available on it that we couldn't get otherwise. If it weren't that we depend on cable for localness, I could easily see getting rid of cable.

I love my AppleTV too.

I hate my streaming Netflix movie options which seem to be 99.9% garbage. I've already watched the .1% of good stuff and get more and more annoyed that "New Releases" consists of more and more old throwaways dug from the same heap.

I tried Hulu+ for a week free trial and quickly realized that the idea of paying for all those endless commerial breaks is just not going to be a good thing.

I agree about the Netflix streaming. I don't see why they can't stream the entire catalog. Well, probably the copyright holders don't allow it. Still--stupid.

The TV shows on Netflix are ok, though. I've found several that I never heard of before but like a lot.

The Smithsonian Channel of AppleTV is also neat.
