MacJury #1023: A Weekend with the New Apple TV

The newly revised Apple TV landed in consumer’s hands last week, and some of those hands belonged to members of The MacJury. After spending a weekend, or less, with the new device, the panel convenes to discuss the ease of rentals, the difficulty of purchases, and arguably the best Netflix experience yet. The surprising small size, the look and feel of the remote control, the benefits and challenges of Home Sharing from your iTunes library, the lack of content access in Europe all lead to a rousing discussion that wraps up in an analysis of who the target audience is, and whether the panelists would recommend the Apple TV. Passing judgement on all this and more are Katie Floyd, John Martellaro, Don McAllister, Terry White and host Chuck Joiner.
