The App Store might have opened it up to a wide variety of uses, but the Apple TV will always be, first and foremost, a media streamer. Games and weather forecasters and online storefronts might fill the gaps in our viewing schedule, but the majority of our time is still spent doing what it was designed to do: Watching video.

So whether you’re an Apple TV newcomer or a veteran from the Front Row days, our list of the 50 best streaming apps will fill your schedule with more must-see than your Apple TV can handle.
