Definitely, I have all three but appleTV is the one I use. Irt your earlier question, no jb necessary but it runs fine with it too. AppleTV is a great little device, wish I'd got one earlier rather than the revo tbh. Already replaced both revos with one now with the Mac Mini on the other TV it's all good although a bit too reliant on Cupertino for my sanity...

Not sure I'd be an AppleTV when Apple's iTV comes out in Q3. Will wait and see what that has in store, although it's sure to be a money pit.

For 65 it's was a no brainer for as a way to stream my music wirelessly to every device in the house.

Now it's got Netflix and streaming its made it a whole lot more entertaining.

Share spotify from the iPhone / iPad and it's great.

Got AirFoil on the Mac and you can shove any sound down it via AirPlay that you want.

There's always something else coming out, just get it when it does...why deny yourself now?

I don't get how the Apple TV connects to the hifi in different rooms though.

I am probably being dense, but I would need many airport expresses to make it work in my house, so how does apple tv get around that.

For the things I'd use it for, I'd be better off getting a cheap small PC or netbook.

Need to be able to stream live from browser to my TV.

I have multiple AppleTVs, one connected to each TV / surround system.

Started my free trial of Netflix at the weekend.

Using it mainly on my PS3, watched the first ever episode of Power Rangers () and then the film Buried.

Overall, been impressed so far, but selection could definitely be better, hopefully that will improve. Will be tempted to pay the 5.99 a month tbh, especially for the TV shows.

Has anyone tried LoveFilm's streaming service, and compared it to this?

Very much doubt it'll get much better, I've had NF pretty much since it's inception here in the US. Once you've had it for a while and watched what you want to watch it get's a bit boring as they don't update the content often as they should (IMHO) & when they do it not always the latest stuff.

With BBC iPlayer/ITV Player etc etc I hate to say it but i really can't see NetFlix becoming a huge success in the U.K as it was in the US.

I think it's generally agreed that the US selection is better and that the UK selection will improve.

It's also pretty cool if you have kids as they love on demand stuff, especially when it's available on a Wii etc.

So for six quid I will probably keep a sub

I was going to try one in our 2nd living area as a XBMC host. Then found I couldnt add AVI files to Itunes without converting them. I even tried putting them in a MOV container via quicktime but couldnt get that to work either.

It's good to see these 3rd party providers starting everywhere. International TV on demand is just about home and hosed now.

I would rather pay 10 bucks or so a month from a very comprehensive provider than download torrents.... we're not quite there yet though.
