    Unlocking or jailbreaking Apple TV is the activity discouraged by Apple. To avoid the long procedure of unlocking or hacking apple tv, I would like to share a free application that will provide you a huge bundle of features. It’s called PlayerXtreme Media Player. It allows you to watch movies, listening music and seeing pictures in any format. You can cast your videos with 1080p playback and 3times better audio quality by using chrome cast and Airplay to your Apple TV. It will also help you to access data from other devices at your home by creating a local network. You can apply a passcode on PlayerXtreme app and if anyone tries to open it without password then guest mode will be implemented and all your data will be hidden.
