Apple TV- Our Take

By September 7, 2010 Highlights

Dropping the price by a third and cutting the size by even more, the new Apple TV ($99) should be in everyone’s living room before long. (And no, it’s still not an actual TV. Just an add-on.) They’re ditching movie and TV show purchasing altogether, instead going with a streaming rental model — $5 for HD movies and 99-cents for TV shows. The all-black-everything Apple TV also streams Netflix, YouTube, and Flickr, in addition to your music, photos and videos from your computer. It’s got built-in HDMI, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and an internal power supply.

Regardless your take, this is one step closer to watching the media you want, when you want it, and it’s a heck of a lot more cost effective than cable!
