UK user wanting Apple TV update
I'm a UK user. When Apple TV came out, in spite of being an Apple fan, I saw little to no incentive to my buying one. Since the last refresh and the movie store I can see more reason but still not enough. I don't have Sky and never will have. I don't want Sky Sports or Movies and I don't want to put any money into the Murdoch empire. Instead I have BT Vision, which means I get the ability to record and rewind TV for free (I don't have a TV package with it, so I got the box and there's no further cost). However, this does tie me into a broadband package with BT, which is expensive. I'm also a member of Lovefilm. iTunes already offers all the big name films, past and present, to download that BT Vision does. However, I like foreign films, art house films, indie cinema and therefore have to subscribe to Lovefilm to get these posted. If Apple TV provided a simple solution to record TV then I could dump BT Vision and BT altogether. If the iTunes movie store took up all the independent studios, as they have done with so many independent record labels, I could also drop Lovefilm. That would be a product I'd happily buy. Plus I could watch all these films on my iMac as well as my TV. I'd assume these would be fairly straightforward enhancements and wonder why they haven't happened yet? I also remember discussions alluding to an upcoming Apple TV refresh. What's the news on that and what are we expecting?
