Apple to Launch iTV
The current version of Apple TV costs more than double the new price.
One potential downside to the set-top: it won't play 1080i or 1080p video, according to the report. This could be a disadvantage for iTV, considering that Boxee and Logitech Ltd. both have set-tops on the way that will support such video.
With the launch of iTV, Apple will also introduce a new iTunes streaming service that the box will use, Engadget has previously reported.
