  1. I just returned my Apple TV yesterday, for several reasons. The main one being, it’s too damn expensive to maintain when you already have regular cable. Mirroring is pretty cool, but without flash, all you really have is Quicktime and Youtube videos. And I guess I’ll just buy the iTV next year (if it’s worth paying extra).

  2. This was also available in Canada for a bit today but has since disappeared.

  3. I did the update, but there’s no TV option :(

    • Apple has pulled the TV Shows ability for Australia and other countries including Canada since I wrote this :( sorry I have not yet updated is post. When Apple do bring TV shows again to the Apple TV for here in Australia it should appear automatically :)
