Video Streaming: Apple TV is based on a rental service instead of buy-sell service. This means users can rent HDTV movies at a price of $4.99 and HDTV shows from Fox and ABC will be available for $0.99. Users can also stream video content from Netflix, YouTube and access images from Flickr.
iOS Integration: Apple TV does not run on iOS. It is integrated with iOS devices using the new AirPlay technology so that users can stream multimedia from any iDevice running iOS 4.2 or later.
Remote Access: Apple TV comes with an Apple Remote for remote access. You can also use the Remote App for the iPhone and iPod Touch which will help you control Apple TV using your iDevice.
