Nice, but not released yet. Still in pre-order stage.

you can download the beta tho :)
#5
for a bit more you could by a 4gb xbox and stream movies on that and play games, dvd ect.
#6
xbmc released on this today, trying it out as we speak
#7
from recent amazon review:

"no access to UK-based streaming media (iPlayer, 4OD etc.), no UK-equivalent to NetFlix, no NAS sharing of media, whether video, music or images."

having xbmc on it could make it useful, but then, that's work, and its £1.20 off.. there are cheaper (Xbox1) or better (others suggest) options.
#8
Apple tv only supports 720p output it will downscale any 1080p material, not ideal if you have a 1080p screen, maybe wait for the next version based on the a5 chip.

Bummer, I ordered this 4 hours ago at £91.47.
#10
The XBMC release for AppleTV seems to play 1080p, although it looked like it struggled abit with the video I saw of it, so probably not the most perfect media centre box. I dont think people would be too disappointed once they get XBMC up and running which allows iPlayer, NAS sharing etc.

For £90 it could turn into a nice little box which plays upto 720p perfectly. Personally, I use a Acer Revo, but then those are twice as expensive as this (granted, much better, but im sure for most this would be ok).
#11
Does anyone know which ios these are likely to come with. I'm hoping to jailbreak with sn0wbreeze (windows).
#12
installed xbmc today and it works perfectly. i've got it in my bedroom where i don't really want a clunky xbox etc.
still reckon it's a bit expensive for what it is but i don't think you'll get it much cheaper than this

Looks like we have users abusing the voting system by voting based on opinion yet again, despite this actually being the cheapest deal if you want an AppleTV! This seems to be getting worse on HUKD lately!

Anyway, this is hot as its clearly a deal :)

Well, that's me told.

Recent reviews of xbmc on appletv report the box struggles with 1080p input and only outputs 720p so if you already have an appletv then excellent, but not worth purchasing for a less than perfect media player.
