Picture from the webb if not allowed to use it please tell me and I will take a photo of my own apple tv and post that one.
Before the Apple event this week I touched the iWatch and my own use of this Apple gadget, missed it? Here it is.
As promised then, some other products from Apple I bought but don’t know if I will continue to use when the one I have now dies or get to old for updates.
First of all, I have no idea what version of the Apple TV i own, I can’t find that information, even if I am sure it’s there somewhere. But no, don’t find it and honestly not so important.
So why do I use Apple TV? I have my Netflix subscription via Apple TV, a surreal experience cause for some reason it’s a mix of the Scandinavian Netflix and the French, have no idea why… And most likely not Apple TVs doing. But information is sometimes in Swedish sometimes in French, the subtitles the same and maybe more confusing dubbing into French (often possible to change).
But I can also get Netflix from Orange, my Internet provider so really? Do I need an Apple TV?
Photos work well tho’ like to be able to see my photos on a bigger screen, but it took time before it actually worked. I dont know why but right now its good.
Since my Apple account is connected to Swedish Apple store (yes I still want to download Swedish music from iTunes, I can’t use some of the apps:
HBO – I want HBO but Apple store understand i’m in France so the Swedish Apple store like the computer “Say NO” – The same with SVT Play and other film applications. And I can’t connect Apple TV to a VPN service this is the most irritating thing really.
If not Apple TV will be able to provide the French selection of TV channels and I still need a TV subscription for the local stations in combination with the lack of more apps (free or subscription) for TV from other countries I most likely will keep my Apple TV until the version I have stop to work, cause I really don’t see the use right now in 2018. Things might change.
iTunes Apple TV, where I am supposed to be able to subscribe don’t work from the Swedish iTunes shop. No TV shows available.
OK – Apple movies, of course better with a Apple TV gadget BUT so many things don’t work. Apple TV ask me to grade my bought movies to be able to present better suggestions, I can’t do that on the films in the Cloud. I have all the movies graded in iTunes none of those grades are viewed on my Apple TV if I don’t download them to my devices (iPad, iPhone, iTunes). The point with a cloud is to not have to download them.
But a new version is coming up and even if all Apple updates fu** up some of the ways I like to use their products maybe some features will be better a month from now.
