Connect to Shaw Wireless Internet


During initial setup, the Apple TV will ask you to select your network name from a list of available wireless networks. If you are using a Shaw wireless router, you can find this information listed on a white sticker on the top of your device. Your network name will be listed as SSID, and network password as Passphrase or Password (See example below).
