    Default Apple TV Pulled From Retail Shelves and Online Stores, Refresh Soon?



    The Apple TV sold out across numerous websites earlier this week, and now Apple’s “hobby” is being pulled from big-box retailers physical and online stores as well.

    As of this morning the only major online retailer still selling the Apple TV is Apple.Wal-Mart and Best Buy don’t even list the Apple TV on their sites. Amazon has stopped selling it as well.

    Physical stores across the country appear to have a depleted or non-existent stock as well. AppleInsider contacted Best Buy’s sales division to inquire about the Apple TV’s availability. The Best Buy salesperson wasn’t to tell when Best Buy removed the Apple TV from the company website.

    “At this point in time, it doesn't look like we'll be getting [the Apple TV] back," the representative said after performing an inventory check.
    Another AppleInsider reader had a similar experience Thursday claiming that a Best Buy employee checked App TV inventory in all stores and found no stores with the device in stock.

    The Apple TV's disappearance from retail stores isn’t unprecedented as Apple usually constrains the supply of products they’re about to refresh. However, the Apple TV is in a unique position considering Tim Cooks comments yesterday about something bigger possibly evolving from the platform and the incredible buzz surrounding a possible Apple HDTV.

    Between the Apple TV, a possible Apple HDTV and the iPad 3’s rumored release, Cupertino looks to be busy this year pushing out new products.

    Well considering Mountain Lion is coming this summer with AirPlay Mirroring, we all can take comfort in the fact that AppleTV isn't being discontinued. :-D

    /inb4 OMG NO DON'T DISCONTINUE IT

    Could this be? Is Apple going to release the so called Apple flat screen HD T.V. with Apple T.V. Integrated inside?

    Glad I got mines when I did! People trash it but for its size it does what it says it does and it does it very well!

    The only reason this makes sense is because I finally found an open box at my local BB and picked one up at Christmas. You're welcome, guys. It's all my fault! LOL

    Is this accurate? After reading I went to best buy's site and it's still listed, as well as being in stock at all but 2 of my local b&m stores. Not saying its impossible but according to article bb supposedly didn't have it on their site

    I just got my dad an Apple TV. Poisoned it, and he's loving it. He is not in the target consumer range of an Apple HDTV though, so, we will see.

    It is still listed on Best Buy's site, but if you look on the right it says "Sold Out Online"
    God Bless
