    Getting an apple tv for xmas wondering if I need to jailbreak to play amazon prime movies on it.

    Is it worth it to get more out of it? Is it possible to do it? I have been looking but can't find anything that says it can be done. What benefits are there for it? We have some movies on Netflix and some on iTunes.

    Please help me decide if I want to or can jailbreak it.

    TY in advance

    There is no jailbreak for the AppleTV 3rd generation.

    You can get Amazon Instant on the Apple TV though if you have an iPad or iPhone. Use the app on the iPhone or iPad and then within the Amazon Instant app turn on the airplay option and it will display on the ATV.

    It's been "in development" and "almost done" for about as long as the ATV3 has been out. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

    I agree. I don't think it's happening.

    I'm assuming you're trying to use airplay in an app and getting that generic error message?

    If so, try using other apps that are airplay enabled. The easiest to try is the pictures app. That way, it's an app you know Apple expects to work. It's possible it's a developer issue with the specific app you're using. If the pictures app has the same error, try rebooting the ATV and seeing what happens.

    it was with the amazon app and with the built in video app. Neither would play.

    I know that some routers have problems with airplay so that might be the issue
