Apple TV update adds purchased TV show streaming and Vimeo
Apple has released an update for its second generation Apple TV software today that introduces a few new features. The 4.3 software update is available now and it will allow you to stream TV shows in HD you purchased through iTunes, along with providing access to internet video site Vimeo.
The new TV show streaming feature gives users access to previously purchased TV shows even if they are not downloaded to your iTunes library. As long as you are logged in your the account that made the purchase, you can stream the previously purchased episodes directly from Apple’s servers.
This is basically cloud-based storage for TV shows, movies should be next.
To update your Apple TV to the latest software, go to Settings -> General -> Update Software and follow the directions.
