TV has always played an important role in our lives. Sometimes, it brings a family and friends together in one room of the house and just hang out. The simple box of glee has been brought to another level to make viewers experience something better. Just recently, along with iPad Pro, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the better version of Apple TV.
The new Apple TV can bring the apps you love like Showtime, HBO NOW, WatchESPN, Netflix, Hulu, iTunes through its newest operating system called tvOS. To make your experience even better, Apple has incorporated Siri to assist viewers in search of something to watch. Through voice command, you can ask Siri to look up TV programs suiting your mood or taste. The icons and titles are still present but at least this new offer will may input of passwords easier. Alas, options are be few but that’s just for now.
As the real challenge remains on the broadcast content, the growth of Apple TV may push content providers into a different level of presentation. Meanwhile, Apple will be dedicating their efforts for the expansion of gaming experience. A big portion of the Apple TV presentation is dedicated into the video games it can play using a motion sensitive remote that is pretty much similar to Nintendo’s Wii controllers.
The new Apple TV comes with Siri Remote with Touch surface, lessening your push button experience. Controlling your TV has never been easier through swiping gestures and freeing one UI problem. Starting at $149, Apple TV will come in markets on October this year.
