Apple TV

How many TVs can I connect to the Apple TV?

Many satellite and cable boxes these days allow you to connect multiple TVs and watch different programming on each one. Unfortunately that isn't the case with Apple TV. You can send the video signal from your Apple TV to as many HDTVs as your HDMI splitter can handle. The caveat, however, is that you would have to watch the same content on all connected TVs. You could not have a TV in the living room watching one program while the one in the bedroom is on another.

Do I still need a cable or satellite subscription if I have Apple TV?

This depends on what content you want to view. The Apple TV does not require a cable or satellite provider to function, but certain channels are not currently available via Apple TV. Currently, Apple TV is mainly used to access content through apps like Hulu and Netflix, and for streaming content from your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Mac via AirPlay.
