Apple Pushes Out New Genius Feature to Apple TV

As noted by AppleInsider, Apple has quietly pushed out a tiny update for its Apple TV. Users will notice a new ‘Genius’ option on the Apple TV menu when browsing through movies or TV shows.

The Genius feature has been available on iTunes for years now, helping folks discover new music based on their previous purchases. And now Apple TV owners can use it to find new video content…

Just as in iTunes, the new Apple TV Genius feature recommends new content based on your previous purchases. In the Movies category, it will recommend movies, and in the TV category — well you get the idea.

There’s no need to download anything, as the feature seems to have been automatically pushed to all connected devices. If you don’t see the new addition, make sure you have an active internet connection.
