During Apple’s iPad event they announced a new Apple TV. The device will support 1080p content with iTunes Movie content at 1080p to match. Also added to the Apple TV is a Photo Stream app so photos from the iPhone will popup on the Apple TV (something you can do at the current one via the screen saver). The price is going to staying the same which in the UK is £99 will be available March 16th. I can’t see me upgrading to the new version just to get 1080p content, anybody thinking of getting one?
