    In line with the target date announced by Tim Cook last week, Apple is now allowing customers to place online orders for the new Apple TV set-top box. The new Apple TV is available with either 32 GB of storage for $149 or 64 GB for $199, and orders will begin shipping to customers later this week, with the earliest deliveries being set for October 30 for those who opt for one-day shipping.

    Alongside the box itself, Apple is also selling extra Siri Remotes for $79 and Remote Loop wrist straps for $12.99. Two-year AppleCare coverage is also available for $29.

    Outside of the United States, the new Apple TV is available in a number of countries, with pricing for select locations as follows:

    - Canada: $199/$269
    - UK: £129/£169
    - Euro countries: EUR179/EUR229
    - Australia: A$269/A$349
    - Japan: ¥18,400/¥24,800

    The new Apple TV brings a number of improvements in both hardware and the user experience, led by a full App Store with support for third-party apps and a new touch-based remote that supports Siri-based controls in select countries. Universal search allows users to find available content across different services, and Apple intends to open this feature up to developers to allow their content to be included.

    On the hardware side, the new Apple TV includes an A8 chip with 2 GB of RAM, supporting up to 1080p video at 60 frames per second. The new remote for the Apple TV includes a glass touchpad as well as an accelerometer and a gyroscope that allow it to serve a game controller. Third-party Bluetooth controllers are also supported.

    Oct 30 earliest deliver makes me think these will be in store Friday. It's a risk but I'll wait and waltz in and buy one instead of paying for shipping.

    yeah I can't see it online at all on either the US or the Canadian site. I see it is on the app and it costs $199 in Canada...apple priced me out of it. Its weird because before it was announced I was in to buy 100% but after no mention of home kit, somewhat crippling of the apps, how terribly siri work on my iPhone, if I do buy I will buy it at Best Buy where its easier for me to return it

    Think I'll sit it out - really wanted to be able to store some of my own videos that I ripped from DVD's onto the 64gb drive. But apparently not allowed.

    Looks cool though, will keep tabs on it.

    I went with a 32 GB model. Had to use the Apple Store app on the iPhone since the website didn't have it up yet.
