Apple TV from Staples Canada ~ #Review #Giveaway #2013ChristmasGiftGuide

Over the past 7 years, I haven't had cable for about half of that time.  I watched most of my favourite TV episodes on my laptop.  For a while it didn't make sense to pay for cable while only watching a few hours a week.  For months now, I am streaming shows on my laptop.  Watching a few anime and Dora episodes are fine and dandy but I prefer to watch my movies on TV.  I was not inclined to have an HDMI cable to run across the living room from the laptop to the TV. Anyone could accidentally trip on it (knowing with my 2 years kids, it will most likely happen). I will refuse to lose my laptop or the TV or even have them injure themselves.



The AppleTV is small and portable like a size of thick drink coaster.  It could be easily be taken from one location to another. Apple being Apple, they make their product simple that even my daughter might figure out how to use it. My husband hooked it up to the TV once I brought it home since he was very excited to try it. All he had to do was link it to our modem and login to our Netflix account and away we went. The first thing we tried was Netflix, by watching Avatar: The Last Air Bender (by Nickelodeon) because it is one of my daughter's favourite shows. It was perfect like it was on cable.  I also love the fact it could also stream Crunchyroll, best known for streaming animes - my other addiction.  On my laptop I am able to watch most of the series for free but I believe you need to purchase a membership to watch it on AppleTV.  However I was able to watch a few episodes in the meantime.  This AppleTV also could stream YouTube, Vimeo, latest and popular movie trailers, Crackle and even KorTV

Knowing some guys or gals this AppleTV might be on their wish list.  If so, hop over to Staples to pick one up.  It is still not too late to grab it since there are a few days left until the 25th!  Don't forget Staples has a huge range of electronic for the techie on your list.

Did you know Staples has a Price Match Guarantee.  If you find a item at a lower price, they will match the price. Another bonus is if you purchase an item from Staples and within 14 days and discover the price was lower somewhere else, they will refund the difference.  Please contact Staples for more details.


GIVEAWAY!



Staples Canada would like to offer one of my lucky readers their own AppleTV.

This contest will run from December 24th, 2013 to January 21st, 2014 (midnight EST).  Winners, You have 72 hours to reply.  You must be 18+ Canadians Only.  Good Luck!
