Apple TV -
Does anyone here own an Apple TV? My friend is considering buying one but I have a couple of concerns though that I haven’t been able to fully answer through research on the net. Hopefully someone here can give me a few pointers. She will be using this in place of, not alongside, a terrestrial TV service (viewing probably 6+ hours Monday-Friday and 12+ Saturday / Sunday. I’m not really looking for advice on whether Apple TV is better or worse than Roku (or similar devices), I’m looking for advice on the legal & technical side.
She believes that by using the ATV, she will no longer need a TV licence. Is that correct? She is planning on blanking off the TV aerial connector on the wall as a way of proving that she will not be watching live broadcasts but surely she still could through services like iPlayer?
She would be using her iPhone as a hotspot to provide the connectivity for the ATV. Is this realistic? Are there truly uncapped or very large data plans for mobiles which are not unrealistically expensive?
