Everything can be beamed to your AppleTV via AirPlay from other Apple devices including any video from Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, Videos, BBC News, MLB and really anything else you can watch on your iOS device. That also includes videos built into Apps and magazine subscriptions, too.

AirPlay is the sleeper feature of AppleTV that will make it big! Who needs to access the Internet through your TV when instead you can do it through your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch? Apps and your own music, videos and movies can be controlled directly from your Apple device and their music/video sent wirelessly to your TV. Genius!

Good deal Eddie. I can't wait to hear your thoughts once you play with it a little. I am very interested in the new Apple TV!

The last update from FedEx states that it's in Anchorage, Alaska and the activity is 'Int'l shipment release.'

The delivery still says tomorrow.  So, we'll see.  I signed a form to allow FedEx to put it at my door.

Well, my AppleTV is set up.  The HDMI cable and power strip that I needed cost as much as the darn AppleTV.

It was pretty easy to set up and we were playing with it last night.  Watched some YouTube videos and previewed movies.  Didn't rent any movies yet.  They had a selection of Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies, so that may be in our future.  :)

I used home sharing to share my music and video library and played some songs from my laptop computer.  My Denon AVR has HDMI inputs, so I don't need the AppleTV's optical audio out.

The next time you need cables of any king, including power cables, check out monoprice.com. They are famous for how low in price but high in quality their cables are. I've used them myself with great satisfaction.
