Apple to Announce Next Generation Apple TV in September Without Web TV Service?

Posted July 30, 2015 at 10:55pm by iClarified
Apple is set to announce its next generation Apple TV in September alongside the next generation iPhone, according to John Paczkowski for BuzzFeed.

The device itself is pretty much as we described it to you in March, sources say, but “more polished” after some additional tweaks. Expect a refreshed and slimmer chassis and new innards; Apple’s A8 system on chip; a new remote that sources say has been “drastically improved” by a touch-pad input; an increase in on-board storage; and an improved operating system that will support Siri voice control. Crucially, the new Apple TV will debut alongside a long-awaited App Store and the software development kit developers need to populate it.

Apple is reportedly hoping to spark a huge upgrade cycle for the holidays and set the stage for a subscription web TV service that the company has been working on for years. Sources tell Paczkowski that the TV service will not launch alongside the new hardware. "Late this year — maybe, but more likely next year," said a source.


Launching the two services separately will give developers a chance to create compelling apps for the new platform and will help build a solid base of users to which Apple can sell TV subscriptions.

We'll let you know when more details about Apple's TV plans are leaked. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Apple TV is the most underloved product apple sell. It's too USA focused for content and suffers from having no App Store integration.. Come on Apple!

I call bull shit on that. Apple has made worse products from before, but Apple TV? Give it a break with the App Store. The second generation is still useable but updated like the third one currently, yet it's jailbreakable to do anything on it and may do better than leading streaming devices. Sure Apple hasn't updated it but really, the long wait is worth it just like waiting for a new iPhone to come out a year or 2 (for even further improvements).

No. Not the same thing. OSMC is a stripped down version of Linux that uses Kodi as the main point of the operating system. Not just an app. The RPI2 has a quad-core processor that can be overclocked...and oh yeah...no rooting required. It is made to be able to do this type of thing...unlike your fire sticks...lol

So, it will finally be at the level of an Amazon Fire TV. About time Apple. But will you allow me to install Kodi? Because my Fire TV does.

If Jailbreakable, yes. But Apple TV I bet will be above dire TV standards.

Sorry but no. Kodi is no supporting the Apple TV. The AFTV&Stick will however will continue to be supported.

Not as much as you do. Web tvs increase the price when really, they don't give people to even make a choice of what they want. That's like wanting phones will all unnecessary apps you can choose to get yourself from the App Store compared to not getting rid of what's on here.

they need to make it as small as the xiaomi little tv product which is the size of a wall charger(think portability when traveling). or offer really insane features because for most people the original will be enough.slightly smaller isn't going to cut it when the original is already compact. actually i think price mattered the most. it needs to be well under 100usd so people splurge on the product. honestly i really don't care, i want apple to make a beautiful round apple watch or make the original more upscale like the asus zenwatch. i'm not asking for too much. sorry for the digressing. to think of it, this is not practical. apple spent so much on the r&d, i really doubt they will change the apple watch much which is a shame because it's very cheap looking. their best bet to lower the price to 250usd max and try to make profit on the accessories of the watch. they really need people to splurge spend because in reality an apple watch is not so useful.

Apple watch sport is what cheap is compared to the apple watch and the diction version, but for he TV, I don't see why we should have a different look though. Will it live up to Apple design? Will it be thinner than ever while maintaining what goes into Apple TV? Will it be as good as they say it is?
