A few days with the Apple TV (2015)

Last week saw the release of the 4th Generation Apple TV. Being the first Apple TV featuring the new tvOS, it was the first device in the model’s 8 year history to have user-installable apps.

There are some interesting applications which I think will show up down the line relating to...
