Apple is adding more Indian content to its TV: Amdocs India's Anshoo Gaur
"I was in the US till 2006. After returning to India, I was missing the shows and live sports that I was following there. In 2013, I first heard about the Apple TV from a friend when I was travelling overseas. Apart from the choice of content, I was impressed with the its ability to sync with an iPad through a Yamaha receiver (using an iPad Yamaha app). It was a compelling reason for me to get the Apple TV," says Gaur.

Entertainment comes packed in a small 23X98 mm box that weighs only 273 grams, which according to Gaur, is "incredibly simple to use." "Besides being able to stream video from the iTunes onto my LG HD television, I could also stream photos and videos from all my iOS devices using Airplay, which is great," says Gaur.
However, connecting the device to high-speed internet is key to enjoying high-quality content. In addition to podcasts and TED Talks, Gaur also loves the new music channel. A long time classic rock enthusiast, Gaur is now a happy man with access to over 500 channels of classic rock stations. "Today, as I switch between the Indian and the US stores, I find that Apple is adding more Indian content, including movies and Bollywood music. The downside is the limited access to content when using the Indian store."
