Apple TV Now Shipping — No, Really

Filed under: Apple, Media, Technology — Tom @ 8:54 am

After my ridiculous mistake where I thought my Apple TV had shipped last week, I got my e-mail from Apple today letting me know that it was on its way.

(For those of you who want the short version, Apple had broken my order into two shipments. I thought it was the Apple TV and posted that it was on its way. Minor confusion ensued at a few discussion boards.)

I’m really looking forward to checking this thing out. As I posted before, I think I seriously underestimated the potential impact of the Apple TV. I’m looking forward to watching my enormous backlog of video podcasts on my television and seeing what else Apple can do with this platform.

  2. What’s the quality going to look like on your GIANT TV?

  3. The quality varies a lot.

    The latest TV shows from the iTunes Store look fine — better than the stuff recorded on my standard def TiVo. Podcasts range from highly pixelated blurs to fantastic looking high-def content. Such is the nature of user-created content.

    I’m hoping that Apple will improve the resolution in the iTunes Store now that the Apple TV is out. But there are plenty of other options for getting decent video. The stuff I’ve purchased from Streamburst looks great.
