I'm thinking about streaming netflix on my bedroom telly using my Ipad4 and am just looking at the options. From what I can see I could either buy the lightning AV adapter cable for $75 dollars, or Apple TV 3 for about $150.
I think I'm leaning towards the cable method, as although wireless would be nice, I read somewhere that Apple TV apps can't be added or updated. Though I also read that many apps or content providers don't support the video out cable?
Can anyone shed any light?

NonprayingMantis: I use Apple TV. its a much better experience, very seamless. you can keep your ipad with you on the bed/couch which saves a lot of hassle and keeps your Tv nice and 'cable free' more or less.
Do you mean using the netflix app on apple tv, or sending through airplay?
Does apple restrict what apps should be shown over airplay? Or is it literally whatever is showing on your screen is shown on the telly? And are there any network performance issues, or stuttering?
The bonus is that you have you iPad free to browse the web, whatever while you are watching stuff off the AppleTV, and for an extra $75 odd bucks, I would call that a huge enjoyment to price ratio......
