    Hey all!

    I'm thinking about picking up an ATV2 for the house, mostly for the wife and kid, for christmas.

    I got so caught up in iPhone 4s fever, (which is currently in transit!)
    It seems i've missed any news or details on rumors surrounding a new :apple:tv? The current one has been out a while, and seems a refresh is due.

    What do you guys think? Go ahead and pick up the current model now for christmas, or wait until a new one comes out? And yeah, I know this could be way after christmas...

    That's what I figured. My initial guess is springtime announcement, or whenever they announce the iPad 3.

    If you are thinking of an ATV2 just get it. The unit is pretty awesome as it is...more awesome if they would add Hulu Plus or allow Airplay to it, but awesome anyway.

    Thanks marc. I'm thinking that's what I'll probably do. It will probably mostly just be used to watch netflix and rented movies anyways.

    Ha, how about an American living in Japan and wanting English TV without paying an arm and a leg for it!!! Thank goodness Hulu Plus just came here, but even that, no airplay and the price is more than double the USA price for a third of the content, and forget recent stuff, I am talking about a few early seasons of old shows or current shows that have been on the air for years...and forget about Netflix so far.

    Hell I wish I could pay for BBC here over the internet, but I cannot. But with MLB and NFL packages, Vettle, Plex and Hulu Plus it is better than nothing!

    I do not get these TV and movie companies, there is such a huge market in Europe and Asia for TV and yet they cannot seem to find a way to tap into it.

    It's not live television, but at least you're able to watch UK channels' online offerings...

    Awesome, cheers. Looking forward to watching some BBC content, Brit humor is by far the best out there.
