Local distributor of Apple products Core Group has announced that as of tomorrow, the Apple TV set-top box will be available in SA.
The recommended retail price for the Apple TV is R1 099, and Core says the product will be available at Apple premium resellers (iStore and Digicape) and selected Apple authorised retailers (Incredible Connection, Dion Wired, Makro and Hi-Fi Corporation).
Core says: “Apple TV makes it easy to enjoy iTunes video, music and photo libraries from your computer right on your HD TV – and with iCloud you can instantly enjoy content that was purchased on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as well.”
The Apple TV can also be controlled by iOS devices through a free app.
The local release of Apple TV follows the roll out of the iTunes Store to SA. The local version of the store currently offers music and a limited selection of movies (TV series and games are still not available in SA).
