Apple TV 2.0 update delayed

Apple has announced that its anticipated Apple TV 2.0 software update, expected to be released this week, will be delayed. In a press release, the company said that the “Apple TV software update, which allows users to rent high definition movies directly from their widescreen TVs, is not quite finished. Apple now plans to make the free software download available to existing Apple TV customers in another week or two.” Announced during Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ keynote address on Jan. 15, the update will bring a revised interface to the set-top box, as well as the ability to browse and purchase content from the iTunes Store directly from the Apple TV, and the ability to rent both DVD- and HD-quality movies.

I agree.  I have been wanting to view 300 in HD ever since they announced this.  I am not even sure if 300 is one of the initial movies, but I hope so.

I’m disappointed for sure, but would rather Apple get it right before release than to have it now and for it to be buggy. We would then have to read a ton of comments about how THAT sucked.

Well, shoot, I’m not even sure life is going to be worth living.  Sigh.

I hope they at least improve the software so it plays videos one after another, because how they have it now is quite annoying.

How ‘bout Jobs makes it Tivo-esque so that I can DVR TV shows without having to pay a fee…
