While speaking at tonight's WSJDLive conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the new Apple TV will begin shipping next week. Apple will begin taking orders for the new set-top box on Monday, October 26 with shipments beginning at the end of the week.

The new Apple TV, which Cook also said is the "foundation" for a new type of TV experience, features an A8 processor and either 32 or 64 GB of storage. It also has support for a full App Store, which Apple says will help "modernize" the "linear TV" experience that most consumers are familiar with. The new Apple TV also comes with the brand new Siri Remote, which allows users to use Siri to easily sort and find their favorite TV shows and movies.

The new fourth-generation Apple TV will be available for $149 with 32 GB of storage and $199 with 64 GB of storage.

Did they ever actually say that the 3rd generation will have access to the App Store? There's a good chance I may have missed it but I really can't recall that being confirmed

"The new Apple TV, which Cook also said is the "foundation" for a new type of TV experience, ". I'll believe that when I see it. I've already got half a dozen things hooked up to my tv including the ATV 3, I might see what people say about it before I jump into this one. Although I know already what the fanboys are going to say before they even turn it on.

I already have two Apple TV 3s, I need a third one for my new 4K TV. It's disappointing that the new Apple TV doesn't support 4K. I imagine the next generation, to be released next year, will support 4K with an old A9 SoC that is already in this iPhone 6s Plus.

I'll still buy it just for the tvOS, App Store, and better interface.
