Shipping via TNT, tracking number was wrong, referenced something delivered in April.

Got my tracking as well. This morning it said delivery by Sept 30th, now it was just changed to October 5th. It looks like the apple tv's got to Fed Ex after their deliver cutoff time. This is the message that was just posted by Fed Ex on the tracking site.

Same thing happened here. Not really pissed though, because with these international shipments it's impossible to predict the real delivery date. I honestly doubt it will be October 5th, but I guess we will see what happens.

Yeah, like mentioned by others after our posts, I too cannot figure out the priority system which is in place for orders. One would think the computers would simply go down the line of orders as they were received. Oh well, just checked and mine is now Prepared for Shipment. Hoping it catches up to the rest of you much like during the iPhone 4 mess where some had their phones arrive and the system was lagging behind.

Anyone think some will show up in Apple stores this week?

My sense is that these are all in the first production run from the factory and the delivery times are more a function of where you are in the US because they are all coming here on the same planes. As for the stores, I can't see how they'd have them any sooner than the first buyers for the same reason unless they shipped a production run to the stores early. I can't see how Apple would do that knowing how ticked off the loyal pre-ordering customers would be. They seem to be selling out their first production runs with iPhones, iPads and now Apple TVs via pre-orders so that doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

same here with the 30th, but now the 5th

though i've learned fed-ex is either hit or miss with these estimated deliveries.
either 5 days off, or right on the mark.... i'm hope it still gets here by friday.

My apple email does say: Delivers by Oct 1, 2010

I do live in the Memphis area though which every ATV will probably pass through justifying a delivery before the 10/1 date.....

The fact that a box can go from China to Boston in 3 days blows my mind. Imagine telling the ancient explorers and sailors that.

Does anyone think or know if they'll be in apple retail stores this week? I pre-ordered mine from amazon, but haven't heard anything on it yet. Ordered it like Sept. 10th. I was debating about it at the time, but figured I'd order there cause free shipping. But if it hasn't shipped yet and its in store first, I'll just pick it up locally and cancel my orders online.

I ordered mine 11:51 AM Sept. 1st

Delivery the 30th then changed to the 29th, then Oct. 5th?

Apparently it missed the first shipment but then again according to fedex tracking, it hasn't been for touched for 12 hours which I really doubt.

Hope I am part of the crowd that gets to enjoy it this weekend :)

Understood but that doesn't answer my question. At the time of ordering it was posted like 2-4 weeks shipping, amazon hadn't listed an estimated date yet obviously cause they didn't have it yet. So I figured instead of missing the first batch, I may have been able to get the first batch to other retail outlet. I guess I'll check with my local apple store tomorrow.

The Apple Store in NYC said that they will have it in stores by "end of September", so they should have in stores this week. I had called to check before realized my order already prepared for shipment.

Thanks :) Yeah it's a shame I haven't heard anything from amazon, but that would be amazing if I could get it this week retail store. I'm doing test rips from my blu-rays to 720p cause the previous apple tv wasn't the best at handling them, way to picky. Been testing on an iphone4 some tonight for it.

ALL of these shipments from Apple are scheduled for delivery the day after the package clears customs in Anchorage. Delivery dates are a computer generated pile of nonsense until the package gets through customs.

Yeah apple product launches have pretty impressive delivery times. Mines gone from china to Mississauga Ontario in a day and a half. All it's waiting for is the customs release and then it's off to my house tomorrow :) overall delivery time: 2 days. And all this for standard shipping? Very nice.

Same here. Where will it turn up next, I wonder. I think it's kind of fun to use flightaware to watch the flight take off and land. Very interesting how they manage this whole thing. Unfortunately I don't know where it will go from Alaska since there are so many airports near me.

I ordered 9/1 at 2:21 pm
Mine will not be delivered until 10/5

I guess a few hour delay will cost me 5 days delay in delivery.

Is this due to higher than expected consumer response or slower than expected manufacturing?

SullyWe got pretty good at looking at FlightAware and lining up the various information from the tracking website with the flight schedules in previous product launches. Especially around the iPad earlier this year. That was madness.

For the most part, all Apple shipments into the CONUS are coming through Anchorage and to Memphis. Flights (and trucks) will carry the products from Memphis to local FedEx distribution centers. Once they hit Memphis, you can use FlightAware to essentially guess which flight out of Memphis your AppleTV might be on. It's a hobby, I suppose. :)

Sep 28, 2010, 09:31 PM
Okay all.

So what else would a good ol' pre-order and shipping extravaganza be without a little insight from techdude :)

I hope all of you have been well, including you GeekLawyer!

Well I preordered on Sept. 1st later in the evening, but at like 1PM PDT. So it seems as the orders between 11-1 PDT were shipping out Sunday night (our time). Mine was shipped out Monday afternoon (our time).

This is my current shipping track:
9/28/2010 3:14:00 PM Departed FedEx location ANCHORAGE, AK US
9/28/2010 12:59:00 PM Int'l shipment release ANCHORAGE, AK US
9/28/2010 11:55:00 AM Arrived at FedEx location ANCHORAGE, AK US
9/28/2010 5:07:00 PM In transit LANTAU ISLAND, HK
9/28/2010 12:30:00 AM Picked up SHENZHEN, CN
9/28/2010 12:30:00 AM Left FedEx origin facility SHENZHEN, CN
9/27/2010 10:00:08 AM Shipment information sent to FedEx

So basically, pretty much all of our ATVs got put on one of two or three planes that went out of Hong Kong last night, which one of them wasn't scheduled until shortly before it departed (meaning FedEx added it on. They often file the plans a bit earlier than like 1 hour to departure).

Regardless, right now there are 4 aircraft your ATV could be taking if it is heading almost anywhere in the continental US. The links are below. Mine most likely is on teh same flight the times corresponded to when it came over (Fedex 76, the one it took from China to Anchorage). But the times are close with another flight.
FDX74 (http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX74)
FDX28 (http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX28)
FDX76 (http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX76)
FDX94 (http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX94)

Okay now with this information, I personally can TELL you that in the IDEAL conditions, these TECHNICALLY could reach us by tomorrow. These flights from Alaska will be able to reach the Memphis hub in time for the nightly sort which begins at about 12AM and then goes until about 7 AM once all flights have arrived/departed WorldShip HQ in Memphis. Anyways, that is the way these flights are designed to work. They bring stuff in time for the sort that night, and then they get put on planes to destination cities, etc. etc.

NOW - just like with the iPad launch Apple may have worked magic with the FedEx (or in taht case UPS) logistics officers to devise a way to hold these for a later date. It is very possible they may be delievered on the 30th and no earlier.

However, those with Oct. 5th delivery dates those MAY be errors, depends on the conditions your packages may have been under when tehy set the date, they may have figured it wouldn't make it to the planes tonight or you may not be in an area that quickly processes and delivers overnight shipment (similar to the iPad / UPS problem).

So in short, I hope we all can feverently refresh flightaware and iship and fedex multiple times throughout the night, enjoy our coffee in the morning, and paste those pre-release papers on your door for your local FedEx guy in the morning, just in case ;)

P.S. Tracking is recommended using iship.com or packagetrackr.com. iShip provides more real time and actual data vs. pacakgetrackr, but packagetrackr has nice notification systems. Also, flightaware info is gathered by looking at flights between airports (VHHH - Hong Kong and PANC - Anchorage, then PANC and KMEM - Memphis). From there it is KMEM to your home town. match the flights with the FedEx dept. scans on your tracking.

Anyways all, I hope you have fun! I won't get mine until I get home from school :(

Well no it probably doesn't.

A lot of times those dates are proprietarily made, and aren't truly solid and sometimes won't even change at all.


If they are obliviously wrong then FedEx will change them at national sort in Memphis. If they are a day or few, then not necessarily. I have had things come a day or two early.

And pretty much EVERY Apple preorder I have with International IPD always comes one day before the scheduled date.

But like the original iPod Touch preorder, the date was made like 2 weeks after we were promised them, and Apple emailed us said it was a mistake, and they came on time as promised.

And I live in Western NY so idk. I don't see it as an issue at all. I think those were just later orders that got tentative dates, thats all.

When it first shipped, it said it will arrive at OCT 1

Then it changed to OCT 5 with some status update on the shipment.

I'm going to go by your words and hope it will arrive at OCT 1.

I don't think it should take as long as OCT 5 to get here anyways.

I've got the same thing going on. I doubt it went back to Anchorage though, I think it's just some kind of delayed status update from when it was back in Anchorage. The status update that gets triggered when it leaves Anchorage is triggered by the flight time, but the Int'l release update is probably triggered when someone gets a chance to enter into a computer system that the shipment has cleared customs. They probably only do all shipments from a particular day in a big batch the day after they actually clear customs. I would bet it's still sitting in the memphis sort facility waiting to get on another plane.

Being an international shipment, it must go through customs. It is not unusual for packages to clear customs 'in the air'. Alaska is the point for much of the fedex air shipments coming into the US. The actual release was done well in advance if it going to the fedex hub in Memphis, it just took longer for fedex to update the tracking info.

Looking at the tracking your package is in Memphis, and it may have made it onto the morning plane that's going to your town .... or it may not.

Mine was scheduled for delivery on the "30th by 4:30", but then suddenly within about an hours time showed up as "On FedEx Vehicle For Delivery". Like I said, this same thing happened with all three iPhone 4's that I ordered, and it seems like as soon as Anchorage AK showed up on FedEx's tracking site, they were either already in town being delivered. Just a delay on the tracking part I guess. My ATV was delivered BTW. ;)

My original arrival date was supposed to be Oct. 1, then it changed to Oct. 5 whilst bouncing around China from Shenzen to some other place. Now it's in Alaska but still reading as arriving on the 5th. Ugh. :(

Same here. I'm in Atlanta and my ATV sat in Lantau Island for over a day and is now in Anchorage. I would've hoped it went to Memphis instead. Looks like Oct. 5 for me too.

Finally it gets the the local facility this morning around 6:30, and what happens. That don't put it on the truck for delivery. Ugh, the truck always leaves at like 7 so I know it missed it. I mean I know it may have arrived a aliitle late but now it's just going to sit there for a day.

Mine says the same. Interestingly a coworker of mine ordered his on Sept 1st (I ordered the 2nd). His order up until Anchorage was exactly 1 day ahead. He got his yesterday, so I figured I would get mine today. Doesn't look like it :(

So I have no idea where mine is. Left Anchorage yesterday just after 4pm, and has been "In Transit" since then. No Memphis, no status updates, just "In Transit."

Perhaps FedEx flies some shipments to Memphis, and the other shipments, they drive from Anchorage down the AlCan Highway...

My wife ordered one online for my birthday on Sept 7th. Shipping date still says Oct 10th on the site.
I called the local store earlier and they had a "limited supply" in stock. I drove up there and bought one. Came back to work and canceled my online order. Looking forward to getting it hooked up so I can stream music while I'm cleaning the house up tonight.

I think ours snuck out of line to smoke a cig before boarding and were left behind. Mine has shown in transit since that time as well. I looked up the most probable flight and it landed in Memphis... just no scan there.

Okay, screw the cigarette analogy above... the three of ours must have watched to many episodes of That 70's Show and decided to have a circle. Considering this is three that are MIA after departing at the same time, I would assume this is the same thing as during the iPhone 4 launch where some got their phones delivered while FedEx's system was days behind in regards to the scans. (If I am recalling correctly, Antennagate kinda blurred my recollection of the pre-ordering weeks)

We can only hope it's a glitch with FedEx tracking system. I can't believe FedEx would let hundreds if not thousands of ATVs just sit on a tarmac in Anchorage.

I'm hoping that if and when I get a FedEx update...my ATV is at my local center or on a truck for delivery. I still have hope for delivery tomorrow (Friday).

Same here - no update since arrival in Anchorage yesterday awaiting delivery to San Francisco. Yahoo's FedEx tracking says it's currently being held in Anchorage. Not sure what that means but sounds bad for getting it delivered before next week...

Yea...mine says "in Transit" 2:22 PM then at 3:32 PM it received Int'l Shipent Release? Shouldn't it receive the release before going i transit? Don't know....all will be forgotten when it arrives today.

On another note: It's pissing me off that I'm reading all these posts about people picking up there ATVs locally. I like everyone else on this thread did a pre-order on Sept. 1st and now there selling them off the selves before we get ours. Lame....

This post is actually encouraging for those that are stuck in Anchorage.

This shows Int'l Shipping Release on Sept. 29 at 3:42 PM. Mine shows Release at 3:32 PM the same day.

So if you received yours then mine couldn't possibly be still in Anchorage unless a pallet went into the Gulf of Alaska!

I'm in Idaho so hopefully mine isn't going to Louisville then by truck to Boise. If that's the case I won't get mine till the 5th at the earliest.

I'm thinking mine is going to mysteriously show up tomorrow.
