The new Apple TV is now on sale

It’s been just over a month since Apple unveiled the next-gen version of Apple TV, and it’s finally available to buy.

The 2015 Apple TV is now on sale through Apple’s online store in the US.

Pricing starts at $149/£129 for the 32GB version, while the 64GB model will set you back $199/£169.

Orders will start shipping to customers later this week, with the earliest delivery available set for October 30.

There are a number of extras available for purchase alongside the Apple TV:

  • Extra Siri Remote – $79
  • Remote Loop wrist strap – $12.99
  • Two years of AppleCare coverage – $29

Apple first announced the Apple TV on September 9, marking the fourth-generation of the device.

It lands as the first major update to the platform since the second-generation Apple TV, which was released on September 1, 2010.

At the time, Apple CEO Tim Cook said “the future of TV is apps”, and revealed new features including a new tvOS operating system, integrated Siri support, and a touchpad-enabled Siri remote.

The new tvOS is 95% based on iOS 9, although the interface and APIs have been tweaked to support larger screens i.e. your TV.

Hardware also saw an improvement, with the new Apple TV boasting an A8 chip, 2GB of RAM, and support for 1080p video at 60 frames per second.
