Apple has just pushed out iOS 4.3.3 update for Apple TV 2G with some minor back-end changes. You can download iOS 4.3.3 update for Apple TV 2G and restore it manually or you can also get the update right on your device. The most prominent feature introduced in this release it that now you can BUY TV Shows from your Apple TV 2G. Previously users had the ability to rent TV shows from iTunes on their Apple TV 2G. With this facility you can stream your favorite Episodes from TV Show you’ve purchased earlier, anytime you want.
Putting it simply Apple has just introduced “cloud-based storage locker for TV shows”. TV shows are also now listed in the “Purchased” section of the iTunes Store on your computer and other iOS devices . This update is a clear indication that Apple really is going on Clouds. You now have the ability to re-download TV Shows,now a big Question, what is the difference between renting and purchasing ? This will get more clear with time. For now this service is limited to USA based user only as one the user in UK tweeted that it’s not available there.
@gruber looks like the TV show streaming is US only – can’t see it on a UK Apple TV. Didn’t say anything on the What’s New screen either.
Support Vimeo has also been added in this release you can now stream content from your Vimeo account on your Apple TV 2G.
