    Default Might be a dumb question


    So I would like to get the new Apple TV, but I have this one question that I'm pretty sure will end up being a no, but here it goes.

    Can I plug in and use the Apple TV on a MacBook or iMac?

    I'm asking this because I'm a minimalist, looking to not have a lot of stuff and try to live in a smaller house. I have a 4K 55" TV, that I got to play my PS4 on. Since I got the 3.50 update, I can play my PS4 on my Mac. It got me thinking, do I even need this TV? I know PS4 can Netflix and I could just use my Mac to Netflix, but I like what the Apple TV offers. I want to have just my iMac, mounted on a wall, PS4 has access to it and I have a Apple TV Hooked up to it as well.

    I like iOS better than OS X and try not to have crazy cords everywhere. It would be cool to use my iMac as a monitor for the Apple TV and PS4, when needed and use the Mac for work as well.

    not to my knowledge.
    I'm sure about the MacBook, not completely sure about the iMac.
