Apple TV To Hit UK Anytime

Apple's new and improved Apple TV device has already started shipping to customers in both the UK and US, according to widespread reports on the net.

Apple's video and music streaming box was supposed to ship in September but the cause of the delay was not clarified.

TopNews reports that in the UK, sources have said that the boxes are on their way too, and expected to be in the hands of punters before the end of the week.

According to the Apple TV product page, the tentative time for shipping has been given as '2-3 weeks' which translates into mid-October.

Meanwhile, AppleInsider reports that consumers who had paid for early shipping for the device have received an email, informing them that the early shipping fee they paid has been refunded, as the device will not be shipped to them early owing to a delay.

The email read that "Our records indicate that when you placed your order you paid for upgraded shipping. Due to a delay, we may have not been able to meet our delivery commitment."

The new Apple TV, available in the US for $99 and £99 in the UK and is a fraction of the size of the former Apple TV device. It will also come with 802.11n, Wi-Fi and an embedded power supply unit. This will allow users to stream videos and music from their computers to TVs and let them watch videos on YouTube and rent HD movies for £3.49 and TV shows.
