What is Apple TV?
Does Apple TV provide access to local TV stations or is it purely just a streaming content reciever?
What I am looking for is a standard TV that provides spoken feedback when you do something like change a channel or setting. Since I am single and live alone, only audio output is required.
I've had an Apple TV for over a year now, and it is amazing overall.
I have mine hooked into a receiver that accepts HDMI, and other than when company comes over, I never turn our TV on.
In addition to watching downloaded content an streaming audio from any I device, there are lots of different content sources, such as major league baseball, you tube, net flix, and lots more.
I highly suggest getting a Bluetooth keyboard, as using the included remote to enter text in searches is a pain.
The one I have is a Logitech, forget the model number, but you can control up to three devices with it, so mine works with my iPad, iPhone and the Apple tv.
It is definitely the best $100 I ever spent on a piece of hardware for entertainment.
The AppleTV works with streaming services, not local television.
