    Nice price.

    So what other devices and peripheries do I need to get going with this thing?

    What was Apple thinking. The remote is too minimalistic to provide any decent home-entertainment experience and unless you jailbreak the atv functionality is really limited. Would you use atv to rent movies - at 40 bucks per movie and 1.5-4GB download I seriously doubt it?

    An uncapped 10 meg line, and a decent wireless router

    I'm guessing a 1 meg line wouldn't suffice for this.

    @DeathStrike, congrats but can't help with the present .

    Nice to see more Apple products being launched officially over here. For those who don't know, this is the ATV3 which supports 1080p. Full details on the device here on Apple's US site. Keep an eye on when the local site is updated .

    Does this mean we are getting TV Show rental/download/season pass access soon for the SA Store ?

    If it is the Apple TV3 - then not yet as there is no Jailbreak for it yet.

    Have two of them already - they're great for Netflix or Hulu Plus.
