Watch Blu-rays on the new Apple TV (ATV 3) with 1080p Full-HD quality
While it offers fewer native channels than the competition, the new Apple TV is an indispensable living-room companion for anyone who’s already invested in the iTunes and Apple hardware ecosystems. In terms of an overall, pants-on-couch experience, the new Apple TV is still the best streaming box you can plug into your tube—followed by a Roku. The status quo remains. But Apple, long overdue, is now beaming movies at the highest possible HD quality: 1080p. For the first time, this means the Apple TV isn’t just the gold standard of streaming movies, but a contender against the King of All Physical Media, the Blu-ray.
Besides starting the fun right away with streaming music, videos, and photos from iTunes Store and iOS devices like new iPad 3, iPhone 4S to instantly watch HD movies & popular TV shows, we can also experienced Blu-rays as big as life on your HDTV in Full-HD 1080p with the NEW Apple TV 3rd generation. Of course, I’m not about to pay iTunes’ ridiculous prices to watch the Full-HD movies and TV shows I already own on Blu-ray. Instead, I’ll just rip those Blu-ray discs to an Apple TV friendly format with 1080p HD quality.
