A new version of Apple TV will soon be available in the UK with support for 1080p HD and Apple iCloud
Apple has announced an update to its Apple TV service with 1080p HD programming from iTunes.
The company said the new Apple TV would have a ‘simpler, refined user interface' and support for iTunes Match and iCloud, so content can be synchronised and accessed remotely. Apple Airplay means that video can be stream from an iPad of iPhone 4S to the Apple TV.
Phillip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing said that iCloud support would make accessing content simpler:
"Apple TV is easier than ever to use with its new icon-based interface and the ability to access your purchased movies, TV shows and music right from iCloud."
Apple is yet to confirm exactly which services the UK version of Apple TV would support, although UK users can expect 1080p HD movies via iTunes. In the US Apple TV includes apps for Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr as well as live sports from the MLB, NBA and NHL.
The new Apple TV will be available in the UK from March 16 priced at £99.
