Apple has launched this weekend a backend update for Apple TV called Genius recommendation, which offers TV shows or movie suggestions based on what you’ve watched before and your recent purchases. This functionality is not new to Apple users, as iTunes already offers Genius recommendations on the Mac and iOS devices. The system works like Netflix’s “Suggested for you”, as suggestions seem to be made only taking in consideration your viewing habits.
The service works quite fine if you rate your favorite movies. I guess it’s an appropriate feature for the upcoming Apple television needed especially by users looking for a certain type of content. For the service availability you only have to update you Apple TV software to the current version.
