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.

**While the Apple TV 4K supports 4K resolution, the actual resolution on the screen will depend on the resolution of the content plus the source that’s being streamed from (i.e. the iPhone, iPad or Mac). 

***Customers can choose between an annual ($120 per year per screen) or a monthly plan ($12 per month per screen) for Airtame Cloud’s premium features. Device management and basic digital signage are available to all customers at no additional cost.
