Apple reveals new Apple TV set-top box

Apple was busy today during their highly-anticipated September 1st media event, revealing a new Apple TV, new iPods, iTunes 10 and a music discovery system dubbed Ping.
Available for just $99, the updated Apple TV drops the hard drive of its predecessor and is now small enough to fit in your hand.

The device streams movies from the Web or from smartphones/tablets directly to your HDTV.

Additionally, the second-generation device will stream movies from Netflix's ever expanding "Watch Instantly" catalog and HD movies purchased through iTunes.

The Apple TV has built-in Wi-Fi and an HDMI output.

Jobs has signed content deals with Disney and FOX so far that will give TV fans a chance to rent recently aired TV episodes for 99 cents a piece.

You can order the Apple TV now with an expected four-week wait.

So by "rent" you have to pay per view? If thats the case I think I like amazons model better. Download it, watch whenever you like, and it never expires.
