KEEP THINGS ABSOLUTELY LEGITIMATE, PLEASE
Links to illegal warez, etc. will be removed, and your access will be blocked. (Details)

Welcome to the AwkwardTV Wiki

As you probably know, Apple TV is a set-top box manufactured by Apple. Out of the box, it is enabled to stream digital content from any computer running iTunes. As there is little information provided about what is going on "under the hood" of the Apple TV, this is a place to collect and share information.

This website is dedicated to finding additional uses for the Apple TV by (legitimately) enabling its Potential Capabilities, and is a place for the community to share ideas, discoveries and solutions. It is for informational purposes only. AwkwardTV is not responsible if you void your warranty or damage your device.

Note: Some features may be non-operational with semthex's legal kernel recompile.
