Once connected, the Apple TV platform allows end-users to display digital data from their own iOS devices, as well as from a number of partner sources. Apple TV OTT platform requires the end-user to have an iTunes account and Internet access. The box itself is about the size of a hockey puck and connects to a TV with a High Definition Multimedia Interface(HDMI) cable. Apple TV is controlled externally either through the infrared remote control device that comes with the product or through a free Wi-Fi mobile app, called Remote, that is available from the iTunes store. The fourth-generation Apple TV also provides voice control capabilities through integration with Siri, Apple’s digital assistant.
