How do I stream movies to my Apple TV using my Windows laptop / computer?

You can stream videos or digital photos to any second-generation or later Apple TV from any laptop or computer using Apple's Home Sharing network.

To set up Home Sharing you need an Apple ID and iTunes installed on your Windows computer.

How to set up Home Sharing on your laptop or computer:

1.Navigate to File > Home Sharing > Turn On Home Sharing
2. Enter your Apple ID and select Turn On Home Sharing

You will have to repeat these steps for every laptop and computer you want to use.
