    I wonder if this will support Hulu, but I bet if they do then Hulu may charge users in the Apple TV a monthly fee since they charge iPhone/iPod touch/iPad users $10 a month when I can just watch it on my computer for free and at the same time connect my computer to my TV. So there's no point in subscribing to Hulu if they'll charge it for Apple TV users when I can already do it for free using my computer. However I wouldn't be surprised if they actually did charge and place ADS on it as well so it will rip people off.

    The issue ain't about whether the Apple tv is great or not. I think its cool but if it was jailbroken great but the jailbreak hasnt been released to the public. And many days and weeks have gone with no 4.1 jailbreak/unlock for all devices.

    You seem to be a bit confused. You're paying $10 a month for Hulu Plus. You do not have access to everything on your computer that you find on the App unless you sign into your Hulu+ account on the computer too.

    I'm sure someone will port the Hulu+ App to the AppleTV in no time.

    Default Untethered
    Ok, excuse my ignorance in these matters. Does this mean the unreleased Shatter JB might be untethered? Or does the Apple TV cant be rebooted? Just asking..

    I that your understanding, I would say I don't watch tv anymore in the way that I don't sit down and tune it to a certain channel and watch for a couple hours. I just have certain shows I like and mainly movies. The apple tv is perfect for this
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

I give HUGE props to the dev team for even wanting to do work for unappreciative trolls like yourself.
    lol, reading comprehension > you.

    This is pretty cool, even though I'm not terribly excited about the apple tv. The things the devs are able to do with these devices are amazing, I'm just patiently waiting for the 4.1 JB so I can upgrade my IP4 and not loose my JB.

    Funny how so many people bash something. Then buy it weeks later. You have an iPad, and I bet you have bashed that on here before as well!

    This is a forum for people to talk about apple stuff. Typically people who like and use the products.

    If you want to bash apple stuff, Im sure you can go find an anti-apple forum to waste your time on.

    Hello!

    Welcome to modmyi.com, a fun site for those that like to talk about all things Apple, from their line of products to the exploitation thereof. You seem to have taken my words as obviously meaning that I need 6 or 8 (who cares, its not enough) gigabytes of storage to put media files on the Apple TV; you are mistaken: I'm thinking of storage for jailbroken apps.

    Were you aware that, like media files, jailbroken apps take up storage space as well? It's true!

    So, let's say the Apple TV has 8GB of storage space - is that 8GB available to us, or 8 total? How much of that space is taken up by the OS? How much is available for (jailbroken users) to play around with? If you take a second to consider this, you realize very quickly that storage is important for more than just media files, and you quickly conclude that you should rescind your comment. No one will blame you for jumping to conclusions, but please take a second or two and consider the meaning of what others are saying before flaming them for the face value of their words. This website and their forums are a place to talk about Apple products, not give into blind Apple fanboyism - not every comment has to be positive and cheery and pro-Apple, but it should stay on topic.

    Please remember this so that in the future you can better interpret the words of others, and make the modmyi.com forums a better place.

    Best,

    Not to sound to stupid, but is the Apple TV any better than something like the WDTV from Western Digital?

    Well, if we are going to point out the errors in other members comments, then allow me to chime in here.

    It has already been stated that the main OS partition is 750mb, so there will be 6gb or so of free space. 6GB is MORE than enough storage space for apps considering you don't need the gigantic apps like navigon or tomtom (I concede that there are a few freak apps like Elements that are way too bloated). Also, there happens to be this wifi ability in the machine that can stream files from networked computers. Finally, there is the mini-usb port on the backside that will allow you to hook up an external hard drive to the Apple TV.

    That's what I was waiting to hear. But I'll believe it when I see it.

    What I'm thinking is using apps to access all sorts of files that are on an external drive, etc. I mean, with the USB Camera Attachment, the iPad gains a USB port (which it should have already, granted), but that doesn't mean that everyone can suddenly do everything file storage-related by simply hooking all kinds of storage media to the USB.

    If you check wikipedia, it says that the new Apple TV "also has a Micro-USB port, but this is reserved for service and diagnostics." So, no native-support for hooking up externals means a dev will have to make a jailbreak program for it. etc etc.

    I have my computer hooked up to my tv and watch stuff through plex but the cords are a ***** and that means my macneeds to be right by my TV. apple tv is a cheap alternative to netflix and even better since i dont have cable in my room here. so to me its worth the $120 cdn

    Yes, in all fairness it will require a jailbreak in order to do so, but I don't see that being an issue at all. On the original Apple TV the price was a huge deterent for a lot of users and so not much attention was given to it (relatively speaking) by the communities devs. Now that the new version runs iOS, I see there being a huge increase in the amount of devs contributing to the Apple TV scene.

    The capability was made possible on the original model so I have no doubt that it will be doable on this one.

    Firstly, I am not "a bit confused". Secondly I don't have the app "Hulu plus" because it is a complete rip off when I can just watch it on my computer. I don't need any more extra features as long as I can watch my TV shows.
