Apple TV Finally Streams TV Shows in the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Apple TV has finally been given the gift of streaming TV shows from the iTunes store in the UK. You still have to buy them first though -- you can't rent them -- which means it's not exactly a cheap way of consuming your favourite TV shows; if they're even available on iTunes that is.

Better than nothing I guess, but I reckon it's not enough to justify the purchase of an Apple TV in the UK. Compared to our US cousins, we're still getting stiffed on functionality. Where's our LoveFilm, BBC iPlayer or 4oD streaming? Let's hope we actually get Netflix streaming once it launches here next year -- then, maybe then, the Apple TV might be worth your £100.
