Enjoy all your favorite TV shows and movies when you connect your television to the 2nd Generation Apple TV 8 GB media streamer. This little black box, weighing only 0.6 lbs, allows you to stream content from your iTunes Store and Netflix accounts onto your TV. You can unwind with high-definition content streamed from the iTunes Store, with a maximum display resolution of 1280p, while standard-definition content streams up to 720p. For sports fans, you can also access subscription services for MLB and the NBA. All of this home entertainment is controlled by a dedicated Apple remote. There’s no need to fret with setup, as the media streamer can be connected either via an HDMI cable or digital optical audio cable to your TV. At just under 4 square inches, this device doesn’t take up much room either. It is also capable of supporting high-definition TVs from a wide range of manufacturers.. As for an Internet connection, you have the choice of connecting your Apple TV to the Internet either via an Ethernet cable or over 802.11a, b, g, and n wireless networks, although 802.11b networks are unable to stream video. With a home wireless network, you’re also able to wirelessly stream video from other Apple devices in your home to the Apple TV using its AirPlay functionality. Video file formats supported when file sharing include H.264, MPEG-4 and M-JPEG. The Apple TV A1378 isn’t just restricted to video though, as you can also access your favorite photos and music through it too, across a range of supported file formats, such as AAC, protected AAC, WAV, and MP3, not to mention Dolby Digital 5.1.
