Buy Apple TV (4th generation)

Now watching TV is another movie with the new Apple TV

The revolution is coming on your TV. Used to the fact that every time you wanted to watch something it ended up being the never-ending story: you had to fiddle with the remote and go through a lot of menus. A roll, come on. Now with your new Apple TV, it’s going to be a lot easier. Want to watch a movie? Well, tell Siri. And tell her goodbye to the button burner because you’re going to do most of it by sliding your finger. You’ll feel like you’re touching the screen, even if you’re sitting on the couch.

Dive into the screen. From across the room.

Many Apple products, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, are based on the idea that you can touch what you see on the screen. And that’s where your fingers and the gestures you make with them come in. When we wanted to bring this idea to Apple TV, we faced a new challenge: How do you replicate that experience on a screen meters away? Using touch and voice. So not only have we solved the problem, we’ve revolutionized the way you interact with your TV.

Designed to make your content the protagonist.

Apple has redesigned the screens on the new Apple TV to make content lead the way. We also used a parallax effect to animate the posters so you know where you are at all times. Everything is designed to give you the feeling that you’re touching the TV screen, even if it’s several feet away.

Switch quickly from one app to another.

When you press the controller’s start button twice, the last apps you’ve used are displayed. So if the game is choking you, you can quickly switch apps and get even with a few shots in the Manticore Rising. Or check out the news channel from the movie you’re watching. All without having to go through the home screen.

Customize your home screen.

Put the apps you use most on top of the home screen and access them in a breath. For example, if you add VEVO and select the icon, you’ll see shortcuts to the app contents appear. One tap and you’re in the front row of your favourite band’s concert.

Touch. The easiest way to navigate.

The glass touch surface of the new controller makes everything as fluid as it is precise. You’ll see the movement of your finger on the controller instantly reproduced on the screen. It’s so natural, you won’t even have to take your eyes off the screen. No more excuses to turn on the light when watching a zombie, pirate or alien movie.

Your voice. That feature you have as standard.

What’s the fastest way to interact with something across the room? Like you would with a person: by talking. With the Siri Remote, you tell Siri what you want to see and she finds it immediately without having to go through menus.

Do you want to find something quickly? Tell Siri.

Enjoying TV has never been easier. You know what you want to watch? Then talk to Siri and that’s it. Just like that. The remote has two built-in microphones so Siri can hear you loud and clear, even when there’s background noise. Tell Siri to put in a TED Talk or find Nemo. She always knows what you’re talking about. Typing the title letter by letter or flipping through a stack of pages in search of your favorite movie is history.

Touch surface

There’s something easier than pressing a button.
The Siri Remote has an ultra-precise touch surface. Use your thumb to move from left to right, up, down, and navigate easily on the screen. No more fumbling with the arrow buttons for content. And now controlling playback is no longer a matter of chance: instead of dealing with buttons to rewind and fast forward, you can scroll the timeline with your finger and use the preview to find the exact scene. Your every move on the Touch surface is immediately replicated on the TV screen. It’s so simple, you’ll have trouble remembering how you did it before.

Multidirectional Navigation

Move your thumb in either direction and you’ll see the gesture replicated on the TV screen.

Uniform click

Press any point on the Touch surface to select the content you want.

Precise jumps

Slide your finger in one long motion to rewind or advance several minutes, or in short, precise movements to advance almost frame by frame.
