    Many broadcasters that have created apps for the iPhone and iPad have removed the AirPlay feature. They do not allow you to watch content from these apps on a full size screen.

    It's nothing to do with the Apple TV, these broadcasters deliberatly block AirPlay from working, they don't want you to display their content on a TV.

    It depends on the app.  I believe (from memory) HBO GO and Netflix do work.  They don't mind seeing as how you are a paid subscriber but others I know Cinemax GO (which is the same app as HBO GO gives a message saying it does not have the functionality)  Most likely it's a licensing issue between the app creator and the movie/tv studios.  It's not a glitch I know that much.  It's dependant upon the contract between the provider and the studios.

    Yes indeed.


    Here BBC allow AirPlay on their app, C4 don't.
