Apple TV 4 Orders Begin Shipping for October 30 Delivery

Roughly 24 hours after orders for the new Apple TV began shifting to "Preparing for Shipment" status, Apple has begun notifying customers that their orders have shipped. Early reports so far all appear to be from Australia where it is currently the afternoon of October 29, and deliveries are scheduled for Friday, October 30. Shipment notifications for customers in other countries should begin rolling out in the coming hours as the clocks roll around into business hours on Thursday.

Apple began taking orders for the Apple TV on Monday, with the earliest deliveries being quoted Friday, October 30 arrival dates. Apple's own retail stores are also expected to begin carrying the new Apple TV on Friday, with other retailers such as Best Buy apparently not seeing availability until next week.

Press reviews of the new Apple TV landed just a few hours ago, with the new set-top box generally receiving a positive response for its evolutionary advances, although it does not yet completely remake the television experience as many have been hoping for Apple to do for a number of years. One key feature of the new Apple TV is the tvOS App Store, however, and we've yet to really see how developers will embrace the new platform that opens up apps to the living room.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Why do I think that MacRumors is shoving Apple TV down our throats? Is MacRumors in bed with Apple? The push from MacRumors about Apple TV is downright aggressive. Who cares about Apple TV? No one ever has and no one will in the near future. There has got to be something better to talk about in Apple's product line... or it's a sad thing when there isn't.
Right now, the Apple TV is the most used electronics in my house. I am interested in it, more than any other current hardware Apple currently has.

I can understand not liking or wanting an ATV4, but it almost sounds like you are mad at the coverage on it.... Why?

Well what do you know? Someone complaining about MacRumors pumping Apple stuff down our throats. How ridiculous you are sounding. This IS an Apple-Enthusiasts website, or did you forget? The TV release is relevant and I'll bet if you visit an Apple store right now you will see banners and promotions for the TV. If it's not your bag then simply don't post here.

But since you feel MR is "Shoving the TV down our throats" then maybe they should be shoving Samsung's products, Microsoft's Surface stuff or Google's Android OS down our throats instead.....:rolleyes:

Possibly because it's macrumors, not microsoftrumors?
