Apple TV to Launch in 7 New European Countries Next Tuesday




With Apple adding movie content to its iTunes Stores in a number of new European countries earlier this week, some have wondered whether Apple will be bringing its Apple TV set-top box to those countries to help users take advantage of the new content.

We have now received word that Apple has informed resellers in seven new European countries that the Apple TV will indeed be launching as of next Tuesday, October 4th, the day of Apple's iPhone media event. Countries set to receive the Apple TV on Tuesday include Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.

Do I officially kiss my dreams of a soon-coming 1080p Apple TV goodbye?

Damn, I was really hoping for a 1080p version. This doesn't bode well.

I love the new Apple TV. One of my favorite Apple products ever. If you already own an iDevice and you don't have an Apple TV yet, you don't know what you're missing. Airplay is really that good. It brings a whole lot more value to the iDevices you already own.

When they say "All-new" do they actually mean new, or just new to them since they haven't had one before? Would be awesome if they did update to a 1080p capable version.

Unless there's a super secret ATV hardware upgrade ready to be announced at the event, I'd say yes. Most likely the only difference between the ATVs going on sale the day of the event, and one you can buy today is iOS5.

Hoping for good things to come with appletv. I hope they enable movie streaming like they did with tv shows. Also, apple needs to enable iTunes extras very soon. Annoying they had this on original apple tv and now they don't. I have 3 of these and love it. Great for the kids as well. No more discs.

Wait, regarding 1080p, wasn't the real racing ios5 demo in 1080p? I'll have to go find it again.

Not sure I get this, the resellers here in Belgium have had ATV2's in stock for ages.

Now giving us some content via iTunes, that would be something!

And yes, AirPlay is fabulous, already using it through and Airport Express to stream ALAC optical to my DAC. for such a cheap device the quality is fantastic. Now Apple, please remove the bit and sample-rate throttle you have on it!

Apple probably wouldn't pre-announce a product to dealers like that. If there was something big for the ATV it'd be an announcement for the media event.

The device is new to those countries, and will ship with iOS5, making it technically 'new' worldwide. It doesn't need to be new hardware though.

that's kinda what I think, but either way I've been waiting to see if there was a new Fall event model announcement of the ATV before I bought one. My xbox live subscription expires in a few months and I'm not renewing it. I'd rather go the ATV route for Netflix.
