What is jailbreaking?
If you buy a phone from orange for example, the phone is locked so you can only use orange sim cards. If you want to use say an 02 sim card then you have to get the phone unlocked. Once unlocked you can then use any sim card you like. Well, the same applies to an Apple TV 2. If you buy a standard off the shelf Apple TV then it is locked to itunes, so you can only access the files that you have on your itunes account. OR, you can choose to rent them through the online itunes store for a few pounds a movie. A jailbroken Apple TV 2 allows you to not only use itunes, but you can also access thousands of movie files, music files, music videos, streaming TV and terrestrial TV channels that are stored on servers across the internet. These files are free and you dont need to sign up or join or anything. The only one you need to sign up for is CatchUp TV which is free to sign up with. Just use the included remote, go through the list of movies for example, select the movie you want to watch and bingo, there it is on you TV. These media files are free and you dont have to do any installations or anything. It is all set up to go straight out the box. All you have to do is connect to your network and thats it FREE TV.
A standard apple tv costs £100 new, for another £40 you also get a new apple tv 2 that has a vast array of add-ons that allow you to watch thousands of old and up to date movies, tv shows, terrestrial TV, music videos, various dedicated sports stations, live football premier league, spanish league matches on a saturday etc. when the streams are active. So why have a standard apple tv when you can have a lot more for an extra £40? You can also stream your own media files from your PC to your TV. And best of all, it's all FREE to watch.
The apple tv 2 is untethered, meaning you can just plug it straight in without having to connect it to a pc first.
It can also be connected wirelessly to your network, hard wired or you can even use your mobile phone as a hotspot if your phone supports that feature.
All that is required is you have a TV with a HDMI input. A HDMI cable and a broadband connection.
If you were thinking about getting a satellite dish, cable, or running cables around your house from your existing tv supplier then think again. For me this awesome gadget beats them all.
Brilliant little gadget that is jailbroken with XBMC allowing you to stream video and audio files etc. from your MAC/PC/Network Attached Storage Device. Played all the files i threw at it including mkv's 720p.

PLEASE NOTE: due to their nature and the fact they are all internet based add-ons installed. From time to time the file source may be off-line. This could be down to numerous things, from site maintenance to being forcebly closed or the files being moved from site to site. Please bare this in mind if you purchase one of these, that the file you request may not always be available at the time of request. But, will no doubt be available as soon as the source/error is corrected. The £40 you pay is not for the addons, but, for the jailbreak. The addons are free, open source software and were designed to be free and i wouldn't be within my rights to sell them as that goes against the grain. So, if from time to time the addons do-not work then you'll have to be patient and wait for the links to resume. I am willing to exchange a faulty apple tv, but exchanges cannot be considered for broken addons or addons that appear not to work as these are free. Regardless of all this, you will still be able to access your own files on your computer and stream them to your pc and this will work regardless of whether or not the addons work.
The apple tv is couple days old. Bought from a high st. store, unfortunately i can't include the receipt as in the photo as i buy them in groups on the same receipt. Good news is you dont need the receipt with apple products, all you do is register them online for your 12 months warranty. These are brand spanking new only taken out the packaging to jailbreak and put back in.
The apple tv comes with everything as when purchased.
Please note is does-not come with a hdmi cable. Apple chose not to include them with the apple tv so you will have to provide your own.
If you are unsure about anything then google the keywords. Alternatively, send me a message and i'll help as much as i can.
