Apple® yesterday announced the new Apple TV® which offers the simplest way to watch your favorite HD movies and TV shows on your HD TV for the breakthrough price of just $99. Apple TV users can choose from the largest online selection of HD movies to rent, including first run movies for just $4.99, and the largest online selection of HD TV show episodes to rent* from ABC, ABC Family, Fox, Disney Channel and BBC America for just 99 cents.
Unlike previous version, Apple removed internal storage (HDD) and reduced the size only 23mm height, 98mm by 98mm. The new smaller Apple TV is powered by Apple A4 chip, comes with Wi-Fi 802.11n and 10/100 ethernet connection, HDMI, optical audio built-in IR receiver and micro-USB (for service and support).
Apple TV also streams content from Netflix, YouTube, Flickr and MobileMe™, as well as music, photos and videos from PCs and Macs to your HD TV. Enjoy gorgeous slideshows of your photos on your HD TV using Apple TV’s selection of built-in slideshows. Apple TV has built-in HDMI, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and an internal power supply for easy set-up, and features silent, cool, very low power operation in an enclosure that’s less than four inches square—80 percent smaller than the previous generation.
Apple TV will be available late this month for a suggested retail price of $99 (US).
