The new apple tv

Apple released a new software update to the apple tv, giving the interface a more similar look to the iPad with a scrollable page full of apps to choose from. I didn't notice any new apps, but they are displayed in a way that says more are on the way. Currently you can choose from apps such as Netflix, YouTube, mlb tv, nba tv and more. The new software update allows you to sing up for Netflix or MLB subscription right from your apple tv using your apple account.

Other improvements include:

1080p support with the new apple tv hardware
ICloud access to most movies that you have purchased via iTunes.
A new national geographic screensaver
An updated remote app with direct access to iTunes match

Apple tv is a great platform that continues to grow. I expect more exciting developments during the year. The new box is onsale now for $99.
