Submitted by lalit on October 5, 2010 - 10:01pm.

After almost two years Apple updated the Apple TV earlier this month with focus on streaming content rather than storing content. The new Apple TV is a small black box measuring 3.9” x 3.9” x 0.9” and weighing just 0.6 pounds. It runs on A4 processor and uses iOS like the iPhone 4. It comes with WiFi a/b/g/n support, HDMI, Optical audio, Ethernet, Micro USB port and Apple remote. And, yes it just $99.

Apple says, “Apple TV is the simplest way to watch you favorite HD movies and TV shows, and also stream content from Netflix, YouTube, Flicker and MobileMe, as well as music, photos and videos from PCs and Macs to your HDTV.” Apple TV will also stream content from iOS devices like iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via the new AirPlay feature.

Reviews of the new Apple TV have been largely positive, with most reviewers saying that it’s greatly improved over previous generation Apple TV in both price and features. Tim Gideon of PC Mag wrote in his review “A lower price, a more compact design, and the ability to stream content from iOS devices and rent 99-cent TV shows makes Apple’s latest Apple TV set-top box an excellent option for iTunes and Netflix users.”
