Tutorial: Install NitoTV, the first application for Apple TV

NitoTV was one of the first custom applications to be used on Apple's flagship digital media receiver called Apple TV. The hardware for different versions of Apple TV has changed a bit over time. However, it is still compatible with both Mac OS and Windows OS. NitoTV is primarily a media player. It allows users to create and store playlists of their choice. However, this application can be used for various other activities as well. One can use it to read web feeds like RSS. It can also be used to receive weather forecasts for the next three days.
