Apple TV ????
 
Its a device you can connect to your T.V, you are then able to buy or rent HD movies(it has other features aswell) I was wondering if anyone here in Canada is using this. I know I was all excited when I thought I could rent movies on my ps3 only to find out that the service was not available in Canada, I hate going to Blockbuster and not interested in ordering movies through the mail, this device looks really neat. Feed back would be appreciated.

Apple - Apple TV - HD movies, shows, music, and more. Couchside.

I believe it runs through iTunes. So anything you can purchase or rent on iTunes, you will be able to rent on your Apple TV

My neighbor in BC has it and he says it works great for movies and such

There supposedly is a new AppleTV out here soon. The older AppleTV leaves a lot to be desired.

don't buy the appletv .. it's very very slow. you might as well just invest the money into a mac mini if you're planning on building a media centre. Now XBMC works on an AppleTV too, but as I said, it's slow - we streamed a 1080p ripped bluray on it once and, .. stopmotion effect isn't that great as it looks in music videos haha xD

I can stream 1080P movies with a simple netbook. mac mini is good enough as well but a lot more expensive than a decent netbook.
