    Actually, developers *can* register for the chance to obtain an Apple TV Development Kit, which does include the new Apple TV.

    I just registered to try and get one. I've been a registered dev for about 4 years.

    You had to be an active developer prior to September 9th, at 9:00am to be eligible.

    I am not a developer but I wonder if they will use HTML5 to develop apps which run poorly (netflix, hulu, youtube example) or will they use there iOS TV development code. I hope all apps run iOS native please no HTML5.

    Why ughh? The template is just for the front end interface and is probably optional, considering you can have game apps that obviously won't be using it at all.

    We can and will use both, depending on project.

    They run poorly, and don't have the same robustness, e.g. ability to recover from streaming glitches.

    Rewatched keynote, and netflix, hulu, hbo apps all appear to be native and dropping the html5. So less uggh.

    Does that mean those apps with be iOSTV native and be different for the Apple TV and not universal UI like the other devices? I hope so.
