Enjoying a high definition DVD movie on your Apple TV with family and friends will be a wonderful thing, right? However, Apple TV doesn't have a built-in DVD-ROM or DVD player. For example, here comes the question:
42 is a 2013 biographical film written and directed by Brian Helgeland about the life of baseball player Jackie Robinson. I own a DVD of this movie. There are some conventional pre-recorded DVDs that I purchased in retail stores. I would like to play them on my flat screen HD TV. If I purchase Apple TV (don't currently own), what additional equipment will I need to be able to play my DVDs like "42" through Apple TV? And, what are my options or physically or wirelessly connecting? I have been researching this question, but the answers I find are not clear. Are there some writeups that would explain my optios, configurations?
