The apps in Apple TV

Boot Camp feature for Friday, January 8, 2016

The apps in Apple TV.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    The latest generation of Apple TV has been creating plenty of buzz with its innovative remote that enables voice searching with Siri.   Set up is simple and there is a growing list of apps…adding streaming choices and games to the platform.   For instance, there’s the Withings Home app that will let you monitor multiple Withings Home cameras.   Product Manager Samuel Attia…

“With the Apple TV application, you have the ability to have at the same time up to four different live streams in HD, in crystal clear HD quality.   So you can see in your baby’s room, you can see in the garage at the same time and get a comprehensive view of what is happening in your place.”

Of course there’s plenty of competition for Apple TV from the likes of Roku, Amazon and Google…but the new version makes it a viable contender worthy of consideration.   Pricing starts at 149 dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
