One advantage Apple TV holds over Google’s television platform is access to the wide array of media offered through iTunes. Thanks to a rogue developer that isn’t such a problem anymore. Airtight is an app for Google TV that brings the functionality of Apple AirPlay to the Android-based system and allows users to stream content directly from their iTunes library on their home computer to their HD television set.

Airtight isn’t perfect, however. Currently in beta, some features aren’t currently supported including the streaming of copy-protected movies, AirPlay mirroring, and all-important access to your music library. While development is expected to continue, it remains to be seen if Apple or Google will take action to block the app.
