Best Boxes for Streaming Internet Video (And More) to Your TV

Share As a tech blogger, you know things are getting tricky when you can't even figure out what to call the devices you're writing about. Digital Media Streamers, or Media Extenders? Internet TV Adapters, or Digital Media Renderers? Thus, we witness just one example of the confusion surrounding all these newfangled, mostly black, little boxes that are intended to hook up to your TV and Internet,...

Apple TV Review: Is the Third Time the Charm?

While the original Apple TV had a few admirers among die-hard Apple fanatics and tinkerers, the company always considered the device to be a "hobby," and it never found mainstream success. The newest iteration, however, reflects Apple's first serious attempt to nail the living room media experience, and it's making a serious attempt at becoming a must-have accessory, thanks primarily to its...

iOS 4.1, iTunes 10, Apple TV and New iPods: Apple Fall Event Roundup

In case you missed Apple's announcement today, Steve Jobs unveiled a new series of iPods, iTunes 10, a smaller Apple TV and an update to the mobile iOS software. Head after the break for a quick breakdown of everything you need to know....

Apple TV Gets Tiny, Gets Netflix, Gets Useful

The Apple TV has been something of a joke since it was first introduced as a "hobby" way back in 2007. Essentially, an underpowered and hobbled Mac Mini with an oversimplified UI, it found some fans in the small demographic of tinkerers and Apple fanboys. But now, after years of speculation, Steve Jobs is finally putting down the Apple TV, and, in its place, picking up, well, a new Apple TV. ...

All We Don't Want For X-Mas 9

DON'T WANT: Orphaned Media Streamer Apple TV, $229 It can't be denied that the Apple TV is a wonderfully designed and performing device, and its users generally love it for what it can do. It's the high price and list of can't-dos that take the shine off its luster for us: stream video from online sources other than iTunes and YouTube; display movies and TV shows in DivX, Xvid, AVI, WMV, and...

Apple Adds HD Video Purchases to the iTunes Store

Apple's flood of announcements this month continues apace today with the addition of high-def movie purchases to the iTunes Store. Although HD TV shows were previously available to buy, HD movies were rental-only until now. HD flicks will cost you $19.99, and we're guessing they're the same H.264 compressed 720p quality as usual, so videophiles will probably want to stick to Blu-ray. Purchases...

Apple TV Update Adds AirTunes Streaming, Support for Other Remotes

For home theater junkies who've been having a difficult time taking the Apple TV seriously, you should definitely have a look at what the latest software update brings to the dinner table. First off, we should warn you that any non-Apple TV software (like, you know, Boxee) will be banished should you choose to update, but if you're kosher on that front, we'll continue on. Apple's changelog notes...

Rumor Mill: RIP Apple TV?

Rumors are swirling that the Apple TV will be replaced tomorrow by a new device, potentially a media-centric low cost Mac that would sit somewhere between the current Apple TV (which lets you access your iTunes videos and buy iTunes TV Shows and movies on any TV in the house via Wi-Fi) and the Mac Mini (a computer) in capabilities. We've been predicting the death of Apple's seemingly forgotten...

How to Stream Your PC's Videos to Any TV In the House

Face it: Seasons one through three of 'Lost' were not meant to be watched on your tiny computer screen, and YouTube does not sit well with a couch. It's time to start take all the videos, songs and photos you've been collecting on your computer for years and watch them where they belong: On your shiny new HDTV. Fortunately, that's a surprisingly simple endeavor. Like really simple. Like sit on...

Blockbuster Wants to Stream Movies to Your TV

Rumors are swirling that Blockbuster is getting ready to take a major risk by entering the set-top box market with a streaming video player. This a move that others have speculated that Netflix would make, though there has been little public information about the project. The box would be an off-shoot of Blockbuster's Movielink service, which the video rental company has failed to fully...

Apple Developing Video Game Console?

For serious computer gamers, Apple hardware hasn't been the platform of choice since the '80s. Sure, there have been notable recent exceptions, such as when EA made a major push to the platform last summer, but ultimately gaming on the Mac remains just that: an exception. Is all this about to change? Talk of an Apple- and gaming-related patent might just be an omen of things to come. The patent...

Movie Rentals Hit iTunes (Plus, a New Apple TV)

Well, we all knew it was coming. The rumors have been circulating for so long that it's more been a matter of when rather than if. At today's MacWorld keynote, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that he has finally struck a deal to put movie rentals on iTunes. Pretty much all the major movie studios --Touchstone, MGM, Miramax, Lions Gate, Fox, WB, Walt Disney, Paramount, Universal, and Sony -- have...

New iPhones and Apple TV Coming?

Just a few days ago we mused about one possible way to drive some interest in the lagging Apple TV device: turn the iPhone into a sort of glamorous, multimedia universal remote. But, that was idle speculation. Now we have something a little more concrete about updates to the Apple TV device, as well as possibly not one, but a pair of new iPhone models. It's all still rumor fodder and rather...
