The Apple TV Crash Course Mac. iPhone. iPad. Apple TV? While Apple TV may not get the same press is other Apple products, that is about to change. For years, Apple TV was touted on Apple’s hobby product—something they tinkered with occasionally, but not something they put as much effort in as other Apple products.
This changed in 2012. Apple announced a slimmed down version of the media device at a price people could actually afford: $99. In March of 2015, they dropped the price again to $69, and announced that they would be the first devices to offer HBO’s monthly streaming service: HBO Now. What started as a hobby has turned into a powerhouse.
The low-cost, high-powered, streaming media player, has become the best on the market. Other companies (notably Google, Amazon, and Roku) have tried to create their own media devices, but, in this authors opinion, none of them come close to offering an operating system that just works.
