The lat­est apps and hottest hard­ware for your Ap­ple TV.

Hav­ing di­rected ex­per­i­men­tal fare such as The Girl­friend Ex­pe­ri­ence and also Hol­ly­wood hits in­clud­ing Ocean’s Eleven and Erin Brock­ovich, Steven Soder­bergh is an Acad­emy Award win­ning di­rec­tor with a unique per­spec­tive.

Soder­bergh brings this vi­sion to Ap­ple TV with HBO’s Mo­saic, a film star­ring Sharon Stone and Beau Bridges told from mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives, which al­lows view­ers to have their own per­cep­tion of what’s real and what’s not. The story be­gins with Olivia Lake, a famed chil­dren’s au­thor who falls for a mys­te­ri­ous stranger.

The saga is pre­sented in bite-sized chap­ters, with the out­come af­fected by which char­ac­ter the viewer chooses to fol­low. As each chap­ter is com­pleted, new in­for­ma­tion is un­locked to help un­ravel the mys­tery. Mo­saic harks back to CD-ROM-based in­ter­ac­tive mul­ti­me­dia ef­forts or early at­tempts at multi-an­gle DVDs, but is done with a lot more style.

There are mul­ti­ple out­comes to in­ter­ac­tive movie Mo­saic, de­pend­ing on the viewer’s choice of char­ac­ter.
