Gift Ideas for Sports Fans: Apple TV

http://store.apple.com/

Bring your MLB.TV subscription -- and your favorite baseball team -- into your living room every night with Apple TV.

What Is It: Apple TV

Who's It For: The out-of-market (or just TV-obsessed) sports fan

Why It Makes a Great Gift: No, this is not a post from our friends at The Verge or Polygon. Not only does Apple TV give you direct access to movies, TV shows, your music and photos (and more!), but it also allows for live sports, all in 1080p HD. Apple TV plays content from iTunes, Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, and, perhaps most importantly, sports. Sports!

With a subscription to MLB.TV or NHL GameCenter, you're able to watch live games in HD (assuming hockey ever ends its lockout), and with NBA.com, that posterizing dunk is no longer constrained only on your laptop.

Have an MLB.TV subscription? Watch games live and in HD on your TV. Or replay any regular season game on demand from the archives. Don't have a subscription? You can still get team schedules, real-time scores, stats, and standings - free. You can also subscribe to MLB.TV right on Apple TV.

Cost: $99

Where to Get It: Apple's online store, a physical Apple Store, most any electronic goods store
