Just yesterday, Apple has released an Apple TV 2G update which brings the Apple TV 2G iOS version up to iOS 4.3. This update allows you to purchase TV episodes via the Apple TV it self.
From Daring Fireball, John Gruber said:
I just ran software update on my Apple TV 2 and got a new update that adds support for a major new feature: purchased TV shows. You can buy – not just rent but buy – new episodes directly from your Apple TV, and access and stream any TV show episodes you’ve previously purchased using your iTunes account.
Before this update it wasnâ€™t possible to purchase TV episodes via Apple TV 2G. The update also features support for Vimeo video content and the YouTube playlist. Also Purchased tab under the TV section in iTunes for both Windows and Mac has been added to allow you to re-download contents youâ€™ve already downloaded.Tags: Apple Apple TV 2G itunes youtube
