“Take control of Apple TV” is a book by TidBITS managing editor Josh Centers that is said to answer every question you may have about the 4th generation Apple TV. It explains how to set it up and use it to watch movies and TV shows, play music, display your photos, and run all types of apps on the big screen.
Vevo today announced its new app for Apple TV 4. The app was re-written from the ground up and it brings instant access to over 160,000 HD videos and “exclusive original programming.”
One of the best features of the recently released Apple TV 4 is its ability to connect with headphones and speakers via Bluetooth. So instead of hearing sound from whatever TV show or movie you are watching, you will be able to hear it from your Bluetooth enabled speaker or headphone. This added function therefore allows us to listen to whatever we want, without disturbing the people around us.
Below is a list of some of the best Black Friday deals on Bluetooth speakers for your new Apple TV.
If you’re listening to music on the Apple TV but don’t want it to play on the television’s subpar speakers, or if you’re watching a movie but would like the audio to play from another speaker, you can redirect the audio from Apple TV to any AirPlay speakers (check out: How to send audio from Apple TV to AirPlay speakers).
Below is a list of some of the best Black Friday deals on AirPlay speakers.
Apple sells iOS devices that come in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, but what about the Apple TV 4? Why only 32GB and 64GB? Apple figures most Apple TV customers will just stream content via DLNA/UPnP or use home sharing for content we purchased on iTunes. So the internal storage is to just store apps and data.
After a very long wait, the official Plex app is now available on the Apple TV. Plex for tvOS organizes all of your video, music, TV, and photo collections, and streams them to the Apple TV. With the free Plex Media Server on your home computer and Plex for tvOS, you can watch and listen to all of your personal media on your HDTV.
The app is free in the Apple TV App Store and requires the latest media server (note: you may need to download and install the very latest server manually for now on certain NAS devices).
