Apple TV

Although all new TVs now include smartTV features that allow configuring access to streaming platforms or sharing the viewing of content from mobile devices there continues to be ground for small home consoles or entertainment centers, as witnessed by the wide variety of devices of this type compatible with Android and the survival of AppleTV, specific to the Apple ecosystem.

AppleTV is a home console seamlessly integrated into the Apple ecosystem that interacts with Apple computers, mobiles, tablets, watches, wireless headphones, and speakers

First, it is necessary to differentiate between three products and serviceCurrently the brand offers two variations of the same devicewith the essential difference being the maximum resolution at which they are capable of delivering content (HD or 4K)Otherwise it’s pretty much the same device. The greatest virtue is the ability to integration with the rest of the brand’s devices (computers, mobiles, tablets, watches, wireless headphones such as AirPods and speakers) and, fortunately it’s very easy to set up an AppleTV, as you’ll see below.

The AppleTV includes in its box, in addition to the unit itself, the power connection cable (the power transformer is built into the AppleTV itself), a remote control, and a USB-Lightning cable for recharging the remote control. The AppleTV can be connected to the router via Ethernet and to the TV (or projector) via HDMI, but it can also be connected to the TV (or projector) via HDMI these two cables are not included in the box. Ethernet connection is recommended but not essential as wireless connection can be established with the available WiFi network.

Here’s how to set up an Apple TV

Once the device is connected to the mains and the TV, the simple setup process begins, using the following steps:

-Select the language. This is the first thing you will have to do.

-Set up access to the available WiFi network. This can be done manually or by sharing the passcode from your iPhone or other iOS device. Simply bring them together to establish communication between the two devices and enter the verification code shown on the TV screen on the iPhone. If you choose the manual configuration option, you will have to select the network and enter the network passcode.

-Configure Settings: Next, a menu appears with several options to configure where, depending on the conditions, you will have to include the required information or activate or not certain options: use the Siri assistant, determine the room where the AppleTV is located, automatically download screensavers, allow data to be sent to Apple for usage analysis..

From here the AppleTV will be ready for use and it will be time to install the apps corresponding to the various streaming platforms that have subscription and configure them with user data or send content from the iPhone or MacBook to enjoy them on the TV screen.
