You may be able to use the navigation buttons on your main TV remote control to operate the Apple TV; it does require HDMI Control / CEC to be enabled on your TV and your AV receiver, if you have one.As another wee annoyance, I also find the Apple TV remote a ball ache to use.
Thanks - will take a look at this - might try both your suggestion and the on-board Apple TV+ app when the new TV arrives tomorrow, see what I prefer. If the onboard app wins I'll relegate the Apple TV 4K to the other room.You may be able to use the navigation buttons on your main TV remote control to operate the Apple TV; it does require HDMI Control / CEC to be enabled on your TV and your AV receiver, if you have one.
See Wiki link below for branding used by TV manufacturers to describe that setting.
My Sony TV remote works when I have the Apple TV selected as the input source and I find it much easier to use the Apple TV with regular push buttons.
Back on topic, the film looks promising, if only because Tom Hanks always delivers a great performance!
I too have a free 12 month Apple TV subscription for buying an Apple iPad, so I'll have to give it a look.
Good point on streaming quality. Apple TV+ is very good quality (video and audio) via my Apple TV 4K. I’m intrigued to see if there’s any difference via the webOS app on LG TV.Better keep your daughter happy, Disney+ is nice for a few months. As for Apple TV+, I liked a few shows, others not so much. I too got a free 12 month subscription when I bought a MacBook Pro in December last year.
One other thing I find worth mentioning is that the streaming quality of Apple TV+ seems top-notch, to my eyes, on my Panasonic GZ2000, a lot better than Netflix.
Indeed. It seems that the more streaming services that come online the weaker the compelling reason to subscribe to them gets. There is, at the end of the day, only so much content available. New and “original” content is where the winners will play. I also think that while we are in a phase of fragmentation of multiple streaming services now, some consolidation may eventually happen. This is perhaps a naïve hope on my partI also got the 12 month sub when buying a IPAD though £8 per month cheaper than the Premium Netflix sub .. Apple tv + has far too little content , Disney + is also short on substance.
