Apple TV vs Airtame 2

What’s the difference between Apple TV and Airtame 2?

Airtame and Apple TV offer wireless screen sharing, although the latter is optimized for media casting (watching Netflix, HBO, etc.). Both solutions provide a physical product (the receiver) which connects to an HDMI display (or VGA display with an adapter). Here we provide a feature comparison between Airtame 2 and Apple TV. 

Please note that all technical specifications are taken directly from Apple’s website. In cases where pricing is not directly listed online, we include the quoted reseller price.
