    Default Do You Own And Use Apple TV And Watch It More Than Network?

    Like the title says if you own an Apple TV do you tend to watch more content from it than Network or anything else?

    Yes. We use it for Netflix and my kids use it with home sharing to watch the many Disney/Pixar movies I've bought on DVD and ripped.

    Default Do You Own And Use Apple TV And Watch It More Than Network?

    I watch a few hours of satellite tv every week, but my primary source of entertainment is my tv. I prefer streaming to satellite and I have the Hopper. Hopper is amazing but streaming is still better.

    ETA: AirPlay is everything! Not a day goes by that I don't AirPlay a podcast, video, or audiobook.

    I wouldn't say I watch more than my network channels yet, but typically everyday for Netflix, YouTube, Radio, Airplay or AirVideo. Even just playing my Photo Stream as a screensaver. I seem to use it more and more.

    Yes, I own an Apple TV and use it to catch up TV shows I've missed like "Arrow", "Revolution" and "WWE Raw". I also use it to watch Netflix movies or sports shows via the WatchESPN feature. Furthermore, I occasionally use it to mirror various games that my youngest son plays, especially when he wants me to watch him or help him through a certain level. The Apple TV is worth getting, in my opinion.

    I use it to watch movies mostly. It doesn't replace cable tv for me though.

    Yes, I have Comcast cable but we tend to use our Apple TV more by a 70/30 split. Mainly because we mostly watch movies which we stream on Netflix or rent from iTunes. And if the same thing is on both, like HBO or ABC. We always prefer the Apple TV because the image quality is better than through our Comcast cable box.

    Yes & yes, airplay is my most used feature on my iPhone now. I'll also watch something on crackle here and there as well. Also depending on how many devices are connected to my AirPort Extreme I'll play modern combat 4 but airplay mirror it to my Apple TV. The only thing I watch tv for is sports now like hockey, F1 or nascar.

    I watch content on my Apple TV daily(okay most days ). I never watch satellite anymore as well because of Netflix, Hulu Plus and Movie box. I've recently ( today ) cancelled my Netflix and hulu to try to stay exclusively with movie box. The only thing I miss is the news.
