Adding local storage

Hi everyone

My MacBook has problems continuing to play to Apple TV when I close the lid, so for ease I want to attach a drive somewhere near the end point of Apple TV. What are my options here? Can I plug into the Apple TV, or the TV itself? I just want a small local place to copy across a single file when I want to watch it.

Thanks!

This may be a simple solution

or

and if not, check to see if your router supports sharing an external that you could plug into it. The next option Iā€™d say would be to find a cheap router that does support an external drive.

Another more expensive option would be to find a low end NAS with enough storage to fill your needs.
