As noted by The Next Web, Apple has launched its Apple TV set-top box in Brazil, offering users the ability to stream content from iCloud, iTunes, computers, and iOS devices. The addition comes alongside the roll-out of iTunes Store music and movie content in 16 Latin American countries including Brazil. Brazil is also the first country outside of the United States to see iTunes Match go live, allowing users the ability to access their music from iCloud.
The Apple TV is priced at R$399, or the equivalent of $217 in the United States, highlighting the high prices due to import taxes. Those pricing issues are driving Apple and Foxconn to begin manufacturing iOS devices in the country in order to avoid import taxes.
As with many of Apple's products in its Brazilian online store, the company is also offering interest-free financing on the Apple TV, allowing customers to purchase the device in twelve monthly installments of R$33,25.
