  • Apple TV Gets Minor Update on Tuesday


    If Red Bull gives you wings, then Apple TV is prepared for liftoff.

    A number of readers have informed us that Apple TV has been updated today (but don't get too excited, it's a small update). The biggest change? The addition of the Red Bull TV channel.

    If you're not familiar, the digital-exclusive channel is ad-free and largely centers around original programming related to extreme sports, music, and cultural entertainment.

    The energy drink giant, which also throws in the occasional movie to its programming lineup, calls the channel an "exclusive wingman to the best seats at spectacular sporting and culture experiences worldwide."

    Although today's update may be exciting to some, most fans are waiting for the next major update. And we're talking hardware.

    The rumor mill has been wrong so many times on this matter that it's not even worth speculating as to when this long overdue upgrade may come. But no one would be shocked if it's soon.

      Who cares about a hardware update when the software is so limited? AppleTV has the potential to be so much more successful.

      I agree with that. The MK908 shows how to do it better.

      The ATV3 is the only iDevice that cant be jailbroken as nobody is working on it.
      Its also the only iDevice thats got next to no good functions. It cant stream movies from your PC like every other little TV box out there.
      Its so limited its stupid. It desperately NEEDS a jailbreak to get it any kind of useful.

      And this redbull channel. Great, another channel I will hide. When they going to add something useful like the ability to stream from DLNA devices? IF they do add some sort of streaming I bet it'll be limited to iTunes only. 99.9% of my movies are AVI so that will suck. Oh, that and they aren't on the PC they are on a DLNA device.

      Your wrong!!! if you load a moive in iTunes on a PC it will airplay to the Apple TV. Do your research first.

      The big thing on jailbreak on Apple TV is XBMC and to stream downloaded movies , infuse is the one that allows playing virtually any formats.

      Redbull channel? I have a Roku for BS like that.
      ATV2 + JB + XBMC = JOY!

      The only reAson I don't own a roku 3 is becauce of video games. The roku doesn't mirror my idevices so I can't play DeadSpace on the big screen. I also like the ability to stream in 1080p vs the older versions. I'm hopefull that there is a jailbreak soon.

      Personally, I enjoy Netflix US after pointing my DNS to Netflix USA from Canada on my Apple TV 2.
