I have here a Apple TV , 2021 model gonna show you how to set it up , step by step .

First thing is right out of the box , you get the Apple TV itself , you have the power HTM , I and Ethernet .

OK ?

I'm not gonna be using the Ethernet .

I'm gonna use my wifi also in regards to the uh HTM I , you do need to have your own HDM I cable , OK ?

I'll put a link below if you need to get one from Amazon .

Also , you have your power cable here which you plug in here .

You have the Apple TV pamphlet .

You have the uh new Apple TV remote also comes with the lightning charging cable where you can go ahead and charge this and of course you can charge your iphones and ipads as well with this lightning charging cable .

So first thing is go ahead and plug in your HDM I cable .

We're gonna plug one N into the Apple TV itself .

I wanna go ahead next and go ahead and grab your power cable , plug that into the power sockets right there .

Next thing is we're gonna go ahead and plug the uh power plug this into the outlet to fire up the Apple TV .

And then the other side of the HM I cable put that onto the , uh , plug that into the back of your TV in the HDM I port .

Now , you know your Apple TV is on when you see this little white light right here .

Next thing is turn your TV on and then you want to go ahead and select the correct , correct HDM I port wherever you plugged in the apple TV .

And what we wanna do is we want to press and hold the back button and the , and the uh the volume up .

OK .

So back button , volume up .

It says you can do menu or volume up , but that's for the uh previous uh apple TV model where it said it has a menu button on here , but the newer one doesn't .

So with the newer one here is press and hold the back and the volume up ready .

123 , press and hold both buttons .

You want to kind of point it at the apple TV .

All right .

So it's pairing your remote , bring it closer to your Apple TV .

I'm definitely gonna go ahead and uh automatically download because these screensavers are absolutely awesome to look at app analytics .

It's up to you .

You can share with developers or you don't have to share for me .

I'm just gonna go ahead and share with them .

It doesn't really matter terms and conditions , you uh conditions , you can go ahead and read through that you will have to agree to proceed .

So I'm gonna go ahead and just agree right here and while uh we're in business and because I'm um syncing all of my other Apple TV .

S is already downloading my other apps that I have that's linked to my uh apple um ID or I uh icloud .

Ok .
