Apple TV Gets Minor Update

Nov 20th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Story, Internet TV, Video

Apple has released a new update for Apple TV, Apple TV Software Update 2.3.

Here’s what’s new in Apple TV 2.3:

AirTunes Streaming from Apple TV Music can be streamed via AirTunes to Airport Express speakers or other Apple TVs in your house.
Third-party Remote Controls Apple TV can now learn other remote controls and use them in addition to the Apple Remote.
Playlists Playlists in iTunes that contain Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, and Music Videos can now be seen on Apple TV.
Music Volume Control Support for volume control in Music.

While these features are welcome, third parties like Boxee are moving faster than Apple to add new functions to Apple’s Internet television device. 

Maybe it’s time for Apple to move to a App Store model with Apple TV.

    Don’t update this if you use boxee – the update hoses boxee and they don’t have a workaround yet.

    I’d wait a week to try updating your Apple TV and see where they are at on this.
