Earlier this week at its Spring Forward event, Apple announced that it was slashing the price of Apple TV from $99 to $69. The effect of the price drop will reportedly be seen in India as well. The media streamer is now available in the country for Rs 5,900, NDTVGadgets reports.
Launched in India in February 2013 for Rs 8,295, the Apple TV is getting an almost Rs 2,300 price slash. Apple TV is a tiny box that connects to the television via the HDMI port and adds features like iTunes Store and the ability to beam content stored in iOS devices to the TV using AirPlay. Additionally, you can also stream content from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Bloomberg TV, Dailymotion, Qello concerts, WSJ Live, Flickr, among others. At its Apple Watch launch event, the company also announced its partnership with HBO Now.
To be able to stream content, users are required to make sure that the Apple TV and their iOS devices are connected to the same wireless network. The media streamer competes with the likes of Google Chromecast, which is available at nearly half of its price, and offers several features such as web-browser mirroring which isn’t available on the Apple TV.
