    Hi all,

    I would like to buy Apple TV 3 but Stephen is not too keen.

    He is concern about poor access provision (namely films) that I will not be able to access the full spectrum that it currently offering.

    I quite like the idea of connecting my iPad to our television. For example if we need to make a decision on something can we 'view' the website or something like that on their television.

    :sorry:

    Well I got one for christmas ( clearly now outdated lol) and have used it more than I thought I would

    Truth be told I had never streamed or 'rented' a movie before but we have done that several times by getting them off itunes on th eipad an streaming them through to the screen.

    It is fab for playing music through my surround system when Lisa isn't about :D

    It is really really really good for sharing photos from flickr, iphone or ipad to anyone in the room so you aren't crowded around a devioc but its up there on your TV

    I have my apple TV set to my flickr as a screen saver so it acts like a huge photo frame in the corner of the room

    The videos from the iphone look absolutely great on it and I am very very impressed by the quality of them

    It has dragged me into the modern age and my DVD filled living room will be aquiring many many less films as I rent from now on
